La Cafetiere Polka Dot
Advantages: Looks beautiful, no dripping while pouring
Disadvantages: Too feminine for my husband and the coffee goes cold very quickly
WHAT IS IT?
An 8 cup cafetiere by La Cafetiere. The cafetiere is glass with an overlaying pink metal cover and lid. It is supplied as a gift set with two matching pink glass and metal coffee cups.
It's very feminine because of the colour, my husband dislikes it and chooses one of our other coffee sets when he makes coffee. I like it, the large polka dots brings it bang on trend and it is a beautiful item to use as well as looking good on display.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
The cafetiere is a good shape, the plunger depresses smoothly without requiring too much pressure. The glass is tough but thinner than Bodum so you should be careful while washing up and avoid banging it, the metal covering protects it slightly but it still feels very fragile. The lid is a tight fit to ensure no flavour is lost.
The coffee pours smoothly from the deep spout and it doesn't drip, I also don't experience any coffee grinds in my prepared cup of coffee. The coffee cools very quickly so I only make up what I need as it doesn't keep for many minutes after brewing. I have a cafetiere jacket that fits perfectly around this cafetiere and this keeps the coffee hot for a little while longer but the jacket doesn't fit tightly enough on this one because of the metal covering. If it would fit a bit tighter I think more heat would be kept in for longer.
The matching coffee cups are beautiful but are too small for me as they are of the more traditional small size. They are decorative when displayed with the cafetiere but are too mall for me to get a satisfying drink, unless I am using my cafetiere to make shorter espresso style drinks. They are made of glass that is a perfect thickness for drinking from and the handle stays cool.
