The New Brazil 34-ounce French press coffee maker incorporates the BODUM motto beautifully: good design doesn't have to be expensive. After all, we want to give everybody a chance to brew an excellent cup of coffee in the greenest way possible: just hot water and course ground coffee, steep for 4 minutes and press the plunger to stop the brewing process. Now waste, just taste. The New Brazil is also available in a 12-ounce size. The French press comes in 8 different colors. Replacement carafes are available for purchase in all sizes. Dishwasher safe.

My only beef is that the beaker is not insulated very well. You could pour excess into a thermos or something, but I really do prefer to use the unit to store the next cup and it cools a little too quickly.
Overall, this is a very good french press, I would recommend it for the casual coffee drinker who want to up their caffeine intake.

This 34-ounce press is perfectly sized. I can make consistently good coffee one, two, three, or four cups at a time. The coffee's boldness is adjusted with the amount of coffee used, as well as the coarseness of the grind--medium-coarse for a sludgier, well-extracted brew, coarser for fewer particles at the bottom of your cup.
I use 2 rounded tablespoons and 8 ounces of water per "American cup" of 8 ounces. I measure the water by decanting it into a Pyrex measuring cup or cups. I don't worry about the few seconds it takes to decant the water before pouring it over the coffee: aficionados say to use water 10 seconds off-boil anyway. I think exact measuring is important, and I don't like to leave this to my 6:00 AM hand-eye coordination.
For my dark and espresso roast taste, the French press quite simply makes completely wonderful coffee while using a convenient, non-technical method. Clean-up is easy and satisfying as well, because I fill the beaker with water when I'm through and pour out the grounds in our garden. The acidic coffee grounds are an ideal amendment to our calciferous soil.
The excellent feature of this particular French press is the way the handle anchors the beaker. Other models I have used over the years have had the upsetting habit of pouring out the beaker with the coffee, creating a rather trying moment before one has had one's coffee.
Great design, simple to use from start to clean-up, and makes great coffee.
- Comes apart for thorough cleaning
- French press method leaves sediment in coffee, which I don't like
I would recommend this product if you want a high quality french press for 2-3 people. In my experience it makes about 28 oz of coffee at a time. If you are making coffee just for yourself, you may want to consider a pour-over brewer like the Bee House or V60.
