Bodum Brazil is one of the most sold coffee maker after Kona. Let’s have a look at some alluring features of Bodum Brazil French Press Coffee Maker:
The Quality of Taste
Coffee lovers never compromise on taste,and the Brazil lived upto the expectations that people have from Bodum. It makes a strong set of coffee that is free from that bitterness and acidity that you get from a drip coffee maker. For a low price, it works exactly like the expensive presses, and the taste is phenomenal. It makes a cup of coffee that is immaculate.
Beaker: The beaker uses premium quality ultra-light and heat-resistant borosilicate glass. It ensures that the reliability and durability remain intact for years to come. The glass beaker won’t smell of various flavors used over time, and the carafe is easily washable.
Handle and Base: Resistant thermoplastic polymer,polypropylene, makes the handle and base. The plastic framework safeguards the unit from any accidental damage.
Lid: Polypropylene (PP) plastic is used for the lid so that the coffee can be sealed properly. The lid ensures that the aroma of coffee remains for hours. The lid also makes it certain that coffee doesn’t escape from the top of the container or splashes while you are pressing the mesh filter down.
Color: It comes in 4 colors: Black, lime green, white, and red.
There is a well-constructed 3-part stainless steel mesh filter used. The three parts are:
- A knob
- A metal rod
- A mesh filter
The use of special mesh filter that consists of three parts makes it certain that no coffee grounds make its way into your cup of coffee. By pushing the mesh filter down, all the coffee ground stays at the bottom of the press. You get a perfect cup of coffee each time. There are chances that some ground may enter your coffee at the end of the press, but that will only happen if you try to get the last drop of coffee from the beaker.
Plastic used in all the filter parts from the shaft to the handle is barely minimum to keep the parts at place and also it is BPA free. The major use of stainless steel guarantees safety and durability.
Easy to Use
It is easy to use – all you have to do is to put coffee grounds in the beaker, pour hot water in it (wait for 2-4 minutes), and press the plunger. You can prepare your hot cup of coffee in 5 minutes if you have everything ready on your platform.
