The French Press coffee maker designed in the fifties and still produced it with the same careful craftsmanship used way back with the original. The frame and lid, made of steel, undergo several chrome plating processes to obtain a durable shiny surface that will last after intense use. The only difference in the production process since the fifties is the commitment to the highest standards of environmentally correct manufacturing, which is important during the chrome plating process. The black Chambord polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish that not only gives a comfortable grip while serving but adds to the high quality of the design.
The French press system has always been the simplest way of brewing a cup of coffee. The French press lets the coffee beans develop their complete aroma so it doesn't come as a surprise that it is the brewing method of choice for coffee tasters trying to determine quality beans.
