Posted on 16. Aug, 2012 by in Product Reviews

[easyazon-image align=”right” asin=”B005FFBV5I” locale=”us” height=”250″ src=”” width=”250″]The Bodum Chambord 3 cup French Press Coffee Maker is classic and elegant in appearance with its chrome trim and attractive top will make up to 3 x 40z cups of great tasting coffee and look good whilst doing it.

Remember that in coffee terms, one cup is basically an espresso-sized measure which really makes the servings from this french press just one-mug. In other words, if you drink your coffee like I do then this is a single-mug french press.

Aside from its size and its nice looks, what else can be said about the Bodum Chambord?

  • The carafe and stainless steel frame are both dishwasher safe.
  • It has a 3 part stainless steel mesh filter
  • It has at the time of writing this, a 4 star out of 5 customer rating online

The Good:

  • A well known and popular brand
  • Easy to use and clean
  • Nice looking
  • Doesn’t take up too much space on the kitchen counter

The Bad:

  •  Some people moan about grinds slipping past the filter (but not many, leading me to think that its user-error!)
  • A little fragile
