“ Type: Manual / 6 Cups / Type: Manual „
I am a coffee lover and have several cafetieres, this is the most attractive and the one I keep on display. Mine has the gold finish but you can buy it in chrome, Bodum black and a deep blue, each are available in a variety of sizes but I have the 6 cup size. The glass jug is very thin so it doesn't keep my coffee as hot as the La Cafetiere cafetiere I also use, I will usually use this Bodum one when both my husband and I want coffee as if I am making up a whole cafetiere for myself it will go cold before I can drink it all. The gold cage is snug around the jug and I have never worried that it's going to come away either while in use or when washing. The plunger presses down smoothly and there are no gaps in the lid where flavour could escape, it makes three mugs of coffee and that is ideal for most couples as its a mug each and a top up for whoever wants it. The mesh at the bottom of the plunger ensures none of the bits of coffee appear in your drink and it's easy to clean when you rinse it out as soon as possible. The cafetiere pours smoothly with no splashing or drips and the gold coloured metal has stayed shiny and unblemished despite it having lots of use over two years. If it kept the coffee hotter for longer this would be a definite 5 star cafetiere. 4 Dooyoo Stars.
