Advantages: Makes wicked coffee; Looks the business; Easy to clean
I got this Bodum Cafetierre for Xmas last year and have used it every single day ever since because it makes such a wicked cup of coffee and is mega easy to use and clean.
This one makes 8 cups.... and don't be stupid like me and think that is going to equal 8 mugs because it doesn't! To get 8 out of this I think you need to be using them tiny little proper coffee cups, using big mugs like I do you get about 4 out of this cafetierre.
It looks brill and deffo isn't the sort of thing you would want to hide away in the cupboard, I keep mine on display on a shelf all the time and it's a good job it gets used all the time because the lid COLLECTS dust and the cafetierre starts looking dusty within an hour of me putting it on the shelf!!!
I like the chrome frame that goes round the glass of the cafetierre because it looks so good and it also makes the cafetierre more stable when it's standing up. We've always had Bodum cafetierres but most of them have had the black plastic frame, that works just as good as the chrome but doesn't LOOK as brill. The feet on this cafetierre are all dead level so there is no wobbling or anything when it's sitting there full of brewing coffee.
On the lid there is a vent and you need to make sure that is in the closed position when you first put the hot water in with the coffee. I think it must keep the steam in so that the coffee gets a nice rich flavour, just remember to spin the lid round before you try to pour the coffee out because the vent needs to obviously be in front of the spout or your coffee isn't going to come out at all!!!
This cafetierre pours nice and smooth, you don't get any leaks or drips like happens when you're using a cheaper cafetierre and the handle is screwed onto the body strongly so it doesn't feel loose as you lift it up. I like the way the handle is quite rounded so that your hand feels comfortable when you are holding and pouring with the cafetierre. The lid fits nice and snug too and doesn't rattle around like the years old Bodum cafetierre that my mum still uses sometimes.
This cafetierre is dead easy to clean and it doesn't matter if you've left the coffee grinds in it for AGES.... they'll still rinse out with a blast of hot water and then a quick soak in hot soapy water will get the glass up perfectly clean again.
Summary: The BEST Cafetierre!
