The Bodum Eileen French press coffee maker, was conceived not only in honor of the great designer Eileen Gray and all the coffee connoisseurs who frequent the bistros and cafes of Paris, Gray’s adopted city. The beautifully detailed stainless steel frame offers extra protection for the glass carafe. The French press brews coffee in 4 minutes that is extremely flavorful. Simple and easy to use; just add coarse ground coffee to the press with hot water, let it sit for 4 minutes and press the plunger to stop the brewing process. The stainless steel filter system means no waste. Replacement parts are available.
The Eileen coffee press is a tribute to designer Eileen Gray and is built to withstand the rigors and crowds of a cafe in Paris–the city that Gray loved most. Bodum instills quality craftsmanship in this press and the result, according to coffee purists, is a brewing machine that produces a superior taste and aroma to any electric coffeemaker. The secret is that the grounds are able to steep in boiling water for about four minutes before they are pressed with the plunger, producing a richer, full-bodied flavor.
The heat-resistant glass carafe on this Eileen model holds a maximum of 32 ounces or 8 cups of brewed coffee or tea, making it a useful size for all-day-long drinkers. The stainless-steel frame encases the carafe and protects it from breakage while still allowing coffee drinkers to see their rich coffee through the slotted design. The santoprene-coated square-shaped handle provides a firm grip on the press while pouring and the stainless-steel lid and plunger are durable and will hold up to years of brewing. For easy cleaning, the carafe and all its parts go right into the dishwasher. Replacement parts are available from the manufacturer. –Cristina Vaamonde
