Summary: I love the Bodum French Press. The Brazil model is great. It makes great coffee with no paper filters to keep on hand. The 8 cup model holds 32 ounces of water which is 8 cups at 4 ounces each. For the typical American that is 4 cups of 8 ounces of coffee.
Summary: I have used different Bodum coffee-makers for the last 25 years. This has to be one of their best. Easy to use, easy to clean. Coupled with an electric kettle, which quickly provides boiling water, I have steaming hot wonderfully aromatic coffee in a matter of 5 minutes.
Summary: I bought it in green. It looks great, and does the perfect job of making a cup of coffee, but the build quality isn't great. The arm is made of plastic and is attached only at the bottom which means that there is a bit of flex, especially when it is full.
