The Java French press Coffee maker incorporates the Bodum motto beautifully; good design doesn't have to be expensive. After all, we want to give everybody a chance to brew an excellent cup of Coffee in a Green way. Just hot water and ground Coffee is all that's needed. Coarse ground Coffee is recommended for best results. The Coffee press is recognized worldwide as the best method for brewing rich, flavorful Coffee and it brews Coffee in just four minutes. The full Coffee flavor is extracted through maximizing the surface area contact between the water and the Coffee, ensuring the best extraction of the natural oils and acids form the Coffee bean. The Java follows the same design as the iconic Chambord(r). the only difference is that the lid and frame are made of plastic. The filter and plunger are stainless steel and the beaker is borosilicate glass.
