Bodum Chambord French Press
Tony_C
I just picked up my Bodum Chambord French Press from La Columbe today, and will be putting it to good use in the morning, and will post my results.

Used one for numbers of years and have three different sized ones, a small, a four cup and a huge, but got to using the AeroPress a year ago and that's about all I use to now. I like the coffee better from it than the French Press and it's a lot quicker. I will still use the French Press to do a sample cuppings but that's about all it gets drug out for now.

You will really have to play with grind size and steep times for your taste and patience. Some like to grind chunks and steep eight or more minutes. I just used a slightly larger than medium grind and steeped for four. Then just don't drink that last ounce of so of coffee in the cup and gently tilt the cup when drinking to help keep from stirring it up off the bottom.
The Bonavita Variable Temperature Digital Electric Kettle is very handy with one also. Put about12-14 ounces of water in the 1.5 liter and it's 202 degrees in about 30 seconds. Also, the regular spout is a whole lot cheaper than the goose neck and works just fine.

Thanks for the info Ben. I have the 34 oz model, as I'm basically the only true coffee drinker in the house. I used it this morning with my fresh roasted Yirgacheffe. I enjoyed the simplicity, and it was a pretty straight forward brew.

I already use a Bonavita electric kettle with the goose neck. I have my Baratza set to 22 for my Chemex grind, so I bumped it up to 24 for a little coarser grind. Not too much, but it only produced a small amount of sediment in the very last part as I poured (which like you mentioned, I didn't drink). I brewed for the suggested 4 minutes and the result was a bright cup. Very enjoyable, but I will be comparing the brew to my Chemex as this was one of my experimental roasts on my Behmor. So I will do a side by side with the Chemex to see what difference may be there or if it is the same.

Tony...My Encore is set at 27 and I use my 34oz (1 Liter) Bodum. I pour 20 OZ water in and let it steep for 30 seconds. Then I swirl it and let it stand for 6 more minutes. It makes a great mug!

I too am ruined by the AreoPress...it even make crappy coffee taste good ThumbsUp

I have been wanting to get the Bonavita for a while now...do you know of the best price for one? I have read reviews about the goose neck spout being so delicate that it is easy to get a leak. So far that has been my hesitation...

In my opinion, if you are rough with the kettle, and don't treat it right, I could see it breaking or cracking. I treat mine with care and use it very frequently. For a pour over like the Chemex, the goose neck version is soooo nice. But, for the Aeropress or French Press, Ben is absolutely right. The regular spout is all you need.

I got my goose neck kettle from La Columbe when it was on sale. I've been a customer of theirs for a while now, (if you like bourbon, try their Different Drum rum). But right now for the goose neck electric kettle, Seattle Coffee Gear has it for 47.00 plus free shipping. Never ordered from them, so can't vouch for them though.

Thank you for that grind setting. I will bump mine to 27 and give it a whirl. This is the type of info that really makes a difference in my opinion.

Love this forum and its members!

I got lucky when I got mine. I found the 1.5 liter regular spout on sale about a year ago for $41 with free shipping on Amazon. When I went to pay for it with my AmEx, they showed I had $27 in credits on it so I said what the heck and used those, Cost me $14 delivered to my door.

Typically, the standard spout runs $20-$30 less than the cheapest goose neck you can find. I got the 1.5 liter because it has a 1500 watt heater and the 1 liter has the 1000 watt heat, which meant MORE POWER and I'm a fool for more power, even though I knew I would probably rarely put more than 14 oucnes in it. It will heat that small amount of water four times faster than a microwave. Which I give it a jump start, I use water from a hot water dispenser on the sink that gives 190+ temp water to start with, so I can have 202 degree water before I can have everything else ready for it.

The biggest compliant I heard about the Bonavita was there is a thermal fuse on the heating element that a lot of people says has gone bad on them some still in warrantee some out. Mines still holding fine from two uses a day normally. It sounds like it's easy enough to replace when it does but I haven't looked at mine to see. However, you can bet I will replace it some shape, form or fashion if it does go out.

No problem and I broke the glass once and found that Bed, Bath, and Beyond sells the same glass (Bonjour brand) for about $20...$16 after coupon!

Okay, results time.Same amount, same beans, same everything...

Chemex was brighter, and deeper flavor. But, more research is needed. pouring

Posted some older porn pics from when I was younger and had a more girlish figure.

I'm half way through one of those BIG red plastic Folgers "buckets".....

Gone back to "grocery store blending" and brewing in the Bunn. Shock

I have the Folgers open, some Javatime (thrift store espresso), some Guatemalan, and some Hawaiian. All ground and all found on a shelf in the basement.

Also found two more big red buckets of Folgers down there.

No doubt about it.....

I gotta stop looking for things....

Below is a pic of the current "coffee wall of shame" from a few minutes ago, showing empty grinders and cans of ground grocery store coffee.

Oh.... Did mention?!?!?! I have been drinking a LOT of tea lately....

I really like the French press coffee but I am in such a hurry to work each morning I use the clever dripper instead. I have a Bonjour french press I found at a second hand store. Probably a cheaper one but it works.
