Man this thing is beautiful.

Functionaly, works great but make sure you use the right grind. I thought I'd convert to french press but it is hard to beat the old drip machine. Bought this and a grinder, but still use a $20 drip!

Takes a bit of a comittment and I did not find the coffee to be THAT much better.

This Bodum brews a tasty cup of coffee even if the beans are not of the highest quality. When the beans are very good, the coffee is lovely. Many guests have commented favorably on the taste as well as the stylish design.If you are thinking of buying this Bodum be aware that even though it is advertised as 8 cups, you won't get that amount from this pot unless you are using espresso cups, Even with smallish coffee cups you would most likely get about 4 cups. My second point is that this product does not keep coffee very hot for more than half an hour. It is warmish but not hot. But, if you want a good cup of coffee in a stylish pot and you're going to drink it immediately, this is a good buy.

The Bodum Columbia 8-cup Stainless Steel Thermal Press Pot works well. Coffee stays hot longer if the pot is rinsed with hot water before making coffee. Not sure it holds 8 cups. It works well if you follow directions and is attractive enough to put on the table.

Good product, but rotund shape a little awkward. Would prefer a slimmer oval shape. On the whole, a good French Press

This bodum works well and like it claims to. Says 8 cups but like all coffee pots that translates to about 4. Easy to clean, easy to use and makes a great cup of coffee.

I just recently bought this and I made an imperfect pot of coffee because I chopped up the coffee beans too fine. Now another problem is that this thermal pot does not keep the coffee warm for 2 hrs, in fact it does not even keep it warm for 1 hr. You have about 25 minutes, and what makes sense is simply giving your current up another top up after it is 2/3 of the way down, that is about it. Now the advantages of this French Press style coffee pot is that you can use very hot water, even boiling and if you learn to get the coffee beans chopped the correct way, and sure this is going to produce more flavor which only makes sense when brewing high end coffee like Starbucks. I have used a regular drip coffee maker, a Tim Hortons coffee maker and those make very good quality coffee. You can put the finished coffee into a thermos right away and than it really is good for 2 hrs. In the end I will still use the French Press if I want to really savor the taste, considering that I am able to chop up the coffee beans properly or else it will have residue at the bottom of the glass that you are working on, whereas the drip makers never leave any residue.
