The Bodum Caffettiera French Coffee Maker incorporates classic style and delicious aromatic coffee. It's the pure and simple way of making coffee which is way coffee tasters use this method to determine the quality of coffee beans. You will extract the most essential oil of freshly ground coffee, leaving least sediment in your cup. Simply add ground coffee, pour well temperated water, stir, wait for 3 to 4 minutes, and by gently depressing the plunger you stop brewing. It is designed with a frame entirely made of chrome plated steel. The plastic handle and lid are protecting the user from heat.
