BODUM CHAMBORD FRENCH PRESS
Bodum Chambord, the Iconic French Press Coffeemaker with Santoprene handle & knob
CHAMBORD® is a true original – the classic French press coffee maker designed in the 1930s. And still produced with the same painstaking craftsmanship as the original.
The French Press system has always been the simplest and ultimate way of brewing an excellent cup of coffee. Using fresh coarse-ground beans with water between 92 and 96 degrees Celcius brings out the very best in all types of coffee. This classic design makes 3 to 12 cups of coffee in just 4 minutes.
The black CHAMBORD® Polypropylene handle comes in a matte finish that not only gives a comfortable grip while serving but adds to the classic quality of the design.
Made in Portugal.
Bodum Chambord, the Iconic French Press Coffeemaker
is a true original and a beloved Bodum icon worldwide. The iconic design, now synonymous with the Bodum name, dates back to the pre-war period.
The Italian, Attilo Calimani, developed the principle behind this product during the 1930s. It began to gain popularity in cafés after the war, achieving its breakthrough in France in the 1950s.
Jørgen Bodum started working on his own version of the French press in the 1970s, being an enthusiast of the coffee that comes from the French press method of brewing.
Bodum started producing its Bistro French press with the French company Melior-Martin who, at that time, manufactured the coffeemakers in their French factory. They produced a dome-shaped version similar to the Bodum Chambord. (The CHAMBORD design was inspired by the tower of the famous French castle Chambord.)
Bodum acquired Melior-Martin in 1991 and brought this icon to households worldwide. The Bodum Chambord was then further developed and improved to what it is today.
To this day the CHAMBORD® is produced with the same artisan craftsmanship of the past, but with a focus on environmentally responsible manufacturing in the BODUM-owned factory in Portugal. The French press system continues to be a greener way to brew coffee with the truest flavour possible.
After its long history, the Chambord French press today still lives up to the core belief: “make taste, not waste”.
French Press method is renowned for its depth of flavour therefore choose a coffee that's made for flavour and enjoyment. May we suggest our espresso? Just like the labels spirit animal: Edgar VonRavenburd the Third. Pretentious, but always enjoyable. Bright start- rich finish. We have roasted this blend in a “west coast” dark. This roasting profile prevents the characteristic burnt tasting “French Roast.” Our beans are roasted longer and higher temp to produce a big body and lower acidity but still retaining the brightness of our signature coffees.
Try it with or without milk for a satisfying jolt of caffeine and flavours. This roast is best for espresso machines and French press, with or without steamed milk.
