Bodum BRAZIL Coffee Maker, French Press Coffee Maker, Black, 12 Ounce (3 Cup)

Bodum BRAZIL Coffee Maker, French Press Coffee Maker, Black, 12 Ounce (3 Cup)

The Brazil French Press coffee maker, designed in the early 80's, was our first coffee maker and quickly became a symbol of what Bodum stands for. Attractive and functional design at an affordable price. The Brazil has an ultra-light, heat-resistant borosilicate glass beaker and a plastic handle and base, which make the Brazil easy to use and easy to clean. The 3-part stainless steel plunger has a fine mesh filter, which allows for a premium extraction of your coffee�s aromatic oils and subtle flavors. A mesh filter allows this flavor to be delivered direct to your cup and not absorbed by a paper filter. Plus, no paper filter means no waste. The patented safety lid prevents the splashing of liquids while pressing. All parts are dishwasher safe. This 3-cup coffeemaker is (.35 l, 12 oz.) in size and is also available in 8-cup (1.0 l, 34 oz) size model.

Love everything about it

This French press works perfectly for me. I'm a coffee snob and just can't drink the coffee provided at work. I use my press at work, and I'm toying with the idea of buying another to use at home. Coffee made in the press is so delicious.

I wanted a small press because I only want to drink one cup. Even if I wanted two cups, I would want to make a fresh second cup. It specifies in the product description that it makes a 12oz cup, and that is accurate. This press is insanely cute and takes up very little space when stores in my desk drawer.

The glass is plenty thick and the handle stays on secured. The strainer prevents any grounds from pouring into my cup.

Wouldn't change a thing, love this press.

This 12 ounce french press is the perfect size for individual cups of loose tea or coffee. I have the 34 ounce one and use it for coffee, and reserve this cute little one for my teas.
What I like best about this style of press is the entire chamber is available for the tea to float around in, so teas like green tea can unfurl and open up to fully brew. When it is ready to drink, just press the plunger down and pour.
Just be careful with the filter screen if you think you need to disassemble it to clean it. If you damage it, whatever you are brewing won't be completely filtered or it could scratch the glass.

What a wonderful way to be sure that you can always have a cup of French pressed coffee! I love this little "3 cup" coffee maker. I can take it anywhere I go to be sure that I have my French Press coffee. However, it makes only about one cup of coffee. You could get three very small cups out of this, but a regular coffee mug will hold the entire pot. I also purchased the Bodum Brazil 1 liter-32 oz pot to use when I have guests. These pots always make a good cup of coffee if you use the best organic fresh roasted coffee. My favorite is Jo Expresso, a medium dark roast organic whole bean Jo Coffee from Specialty Java, Inc. I am almost 77 years old and have never like coffee of any form or fashion. I occasionally tried to drink it, but could not stand it. After reading a review of French Press Coffee, I decided to try again. This time, I liked it. French Press is the key, but the right coffee beans are just as important. Tried another brand of coffee which was fresh roasted, whole bean medium dark blend, organic, etc., but it was bitter--not good at all to me. I drink my coffee black.so I must have GOOD coffee beans.

The coffee from this french press is outstanding! It is simple and quick to fix in the morning (I have three small kids to make breakfast for so it is a very busy time). It is simple and easy to clean (fits easily in the dishwasher. Perfect size for one cup of coffee for myself to get the day started.

I previously bought a small keurig thinking it was the answer to making a single cup of coffee without the mess of cleaning up my 12 cup pot, filter etc. I WISH I had bought this instead as it is a great answer to my need. It is small and takes up NO counter space, the coffee is far superior to the Keurig, I don't feel guilty about disposal of additional plastic into the environment because the only waste are grounds which are completely biodegradable. You can get the filter for the Keurig that allows you to use your own grounds but for the cost of that filter you should just buy this instead. Great product and I regret not purchasing it 5 years ago (2 small Keurigs ago).

I have to say, a 2 pound store brand bag of coffee became a very expensive 2 pound bag of coffee. I made the mistake of purchasing coffee beans and then grinding them with a fine grind. (my main coffee maker is a Kuerig just so you understand my previous comment) I did not know I could not use a fine grind coffee, thinks espresso grind, with my Kerig. I thought I would just get a stronger, less bitter coffee taste. Silly me, as the espresso grind clogs the filter and backs up the machine. My research told me to purchase a French Press Coffee Maker and so I purchased this one as it was rated well generally. When I received my product yesterday and read the enclosed product guide it indicated to not use fine grind as it could clog the filter. Well, I was a little dumb-founded by that, needless to say. I decided to go ahead and see if it would clog the unit up or not and went ahead and used the fine grind in this unit. Much to my delight it did not clog the filter -- the coffee poured with no grounds in it and tasted great. Now I am wondering why I bought my Keurig -- Not really LOL. So now I can enjoy my espresso grind caramel flavored "mistake" AND when I want, I will easily be able to cold steep my coffee. I am happy with this purchase, it is a perfect size for one or two and I would certainly recommend this to others!

For me, it is a sometimes hobby thing. I have a small grinder and frequently feel like a different coffee effect than our daily drip brew (of premium pre-ground). I had a French press as a gift from my mother-in-law maybe 20 years ago, but eventually broke the glass carafe and never bothered to get another until now. I find the whole process easy enough to do if you follow the directions closely and don't mind the fussiness of set up and clean up (much more time consuming and messy than a Mr. Coffee machine for example). That said, I don't choose to use it often, too much bother for what it is worth, but it is entertaining and makes a different cup of coffee. I am used to large mugs of Brown Gold, so this size disappoints as to quantity filling only 75% of one 12 oz mug, which may be OK for you if you add creamer or milk, but I have been taking mine black for nearly a year now. Fun, but not a must have for me. Good quality device from a (surprise) Swiss company who acquired an older European maker.

I had a prettry good laugh on this one. I'm not good about "reading dimensions" and seeing it, so it was surprising. BUT, Good things come in small packages! The first two cups were experiment, One very strong and the second was a bit weaker. I enjoy a strong coffee - Cafe Bustelo. To describe it as a 3 cup is stretching it a bit... This little press produced a full 8-9oz.mug; brewed for 5 mins & it is PERFECT! Wish I'd known about this years ago, I would have saved a ton of coffee, One cup is all I need and there's NO waste:) VERY easy to use; (if you don't know) - stir the grinds before pressing. It is sturdy for its size; package was shipped well and secure. I will order another to have on hand & IF the larger size is the same as this model, I will order one. Most manufacturers have that tendency is fix or change what isn't broken...or constantly reinventing the wheel:)

This is a sweet little Bodum Brazil French Press coffee maker! But beware it is tiny! It is more like one cup of coffee not three. So if you want multiple cups, get the 6 cup size. I do have something to share: I now use this little French Press to make foamed milk for latte's and cappuccino coffee drinks! I heat the milk on stove or microwave, pour into the French press, hold lid down and unit firmly on table, and pull up and down the screen filter unit for about twenty seconds or less and POW! Pour milk foam into your cup of coffee and You can make latte art! Love it!

This was my first French press and I could not be happier with it. I have a 12oz travel mug so this is the perfect size for me. I'm very pleased to see it is glass instead of plastic and the build quality on all of the parts is great, especially for the price. The unit itself is very easy to use and clean, it took me no time to get it ready to go and use it. It makes for a great cup of coffee and lets no grinds through the screen. The coffee itself is very good. Strong yet not bitter and super flavorful and almost juicy, you can really taste the beans. This makes such better coffee than my drip maker. This is my new morning go to for sure.

I'd been reading that coffee tastes better when brewed in a French press. If it has the word "French" in front is has to be good, right? :)

I decided to take the plunge by ordering the Bodum Brazil since it's inexpensive. If I tried it and didn't like it would result in a minor hit to my pocketbook. It took a couple tries to get the hang of it. First time I put too much water in carafe, second not enough coffee. The third time was the charm! It produced a delicious, full bodied cup of java! It takes a little more work than using a paper filter, but once you get the steps down it's a piece of cake. I found that even though the instructions recommended using coarse grounds, even with finely ground coffee little grounds ended up in the cup. To see how much difference there is between a French press and using a paper filter, I decided to make a cup using a paper filter. The difference was dramatic! The body that results from using a press was missing! Apparently, paper filters trap some oils that a press won't. If you're sitting on the fence on whether to buy a French press I recommend you do!

The only quibble I have with the product is the tip of handle protrudes slightly into the top of the carafe sometimes catching on the top/plunger assembly, but that's a minor complaint.
