Bodum Coffee Maker prides itself for their elegantly designed products which not only includes coffeemakers but teapots, mugs, and glasses as well.
The company believes that functionality should always be completed by the look of the product and that is what we find in most of their coffee makers.
One of the most popular products of this company is the Bodum Chambord Coffee PressBodum Chambord Coffee Press which really helps making coffee a lot easier and less complicated.
It comes in different sizes and you can choose which would suit your needs best – 3 cups, 8 cups, or more. The Bodum coffee press makes excellent-tasting coffee.
This however, is only for those who can wait for their cups from about 5-10 minutes since you have to grind coffee, prepare hot water and press.
If you cannot wait that long, then you’ll have to make do with a coffee drip. Also, there is a bit of complaint on the durability of the glass itself, although you can buy replacements. This might also be attributed to the wrong temperature of hot water being put inside.
Nevertheless, nothing can contest the quality and taste of the coffee you will be drinking.
Bodum’s 12-cup coffee maker is another good product for your home, especially if you love having your friends over for a coffee get-together. This is completely programmable and has a permanently fixed filter.
Just like the rest of the crew, this machine makes brewing the coffee an excellent and fulfilling activity, plus the coffee is great. However, it is also hard to clean and you may have to use up more coffee for a stronger brew. Also, the electronics and the durability is a bit on the negative.
Still, they are not much of a problem unless you do not want to be too meticulous in the care of your Bodum coffee maker.
Bodum Kona Manual Drip
The Bodum Kona Manual DripBodum Kona Manual Drip coffee maker is one sleekly designed device for making coffee at home.
It is very simple to use, just like the lower priced drip coffee makers but the quality of the material used and it looks like something you can put ass a centerpiece for one of your coffee get-togethers at home.
The spout is excellent for pouring; it is designed like the spout for a teapot. However, you may find the price a bit steep if you are looking for more quality in the coffee you produce.
The mesh is not as excellent as higher quality coffee makers and you will need to grind your coffee very finely in order for you not to have sediments at the bottom of your cup.
Also, the coffee drips quite fast and this might mean that you need to use up more coffee to have a stronger brew.
Finally, it is hard to clean the spout exactly because of its no-drip design and the carafe entrance is a bit narrow for hands to fit in and clean. Still, there are only three parts to the Bodum coffee maker which means you can take your time cleaning it up before the next brew.
