In terms of excellent coffee brewing, manual labour is more popular than ever - that is if pressing a plunger can be qualified as manual labour. The French press lets the coffee beans develop their fullest aroma so it doesn't come as a surprise that it is the brewing method of choice for coffee tasters trying to determine quality beans. The simplest route to an excellent cup of coffee: coarsely ground coffee, hot water, wait for 4 minutes and press down the plunger. The Chambord has been a classic almost from the day it came out - still is and always will be. This latest update comes with a lid that closes off the spout which makes the Chambord spill-proof should it get knocked over. It also makes for better temperature control. The Chambord is made from borosilicate glass, plastic, chrome-plated steel and silicone and is dishwasher safe. It is available in various colours and sizes. The 3 cup version is 19cm/7.5in tall and can hold up to 3 cups/0.35l/12oz of coffee. The 4 cup version is 19.5cm/7.7in tall and can hold up to 4 cups/0.5l/17oz of coffee. The 8 cup version is 25cm/10in tall and can hold up to 8 cups/1.0l/340z of coffee. The 12 cup version is 25.3cm/10in high and can hold up to 12 cups/1.5l/51oz of coffee.
