Adorable is the first word that comes to mind with the Bodum Columbia Thermal Coffee Press. Its smooth, double-walled, stainless steel sides create soft sweet lines that can charm anyone. To brew a delicious cup, add one rounded tablespoon of coarsely ground coffee to the pot for every 4 ounces of water. Pour hot water over the top of your coffee, leaving an inch at the top, and slowly press the plunger straight down. You’ll flip over the results! The stainless steel Columbia Thermal Press is available in 4-cup (17 oz), 8-cup (32 oz) and 12-cup (48 oz) sizes.


trux asked:

Some french presses have both the press filter and a fine screen in the pouring spout to ensure that no coffee grounds that got past the press mechanism make it into your cup. Does this press have a spout screen? Thanks.

Answer by Sanfam:

This french press uses a single filter screen.  As such, your best bet to ensure a minimum of loose coffee dregs is to use a consistent grind of the correct coarseness.  It does not have a screen near the spouts, it is a direct-pour.

trux asked:

Can the coffee press be used for milk frothing if it's clean?

Answer by Sanfam:

Odds are, the milk will simply be too viscous to be able to frothed by a french press.  Presses use a fairly fine-holed filter screen, too fine to properly agitate milk to the point where it could produce a foam of any sort.  More likely than not,you'd end up damaging the press in trying to do so.  On the small scale, I would suggest picking up a small handheld milk frother, or look into the Jura FrothPlus/FrothPro line of standalone milk frothers.

holly asked:

How long does the bodum thermal french press keep coffee warm?

Answer by Whole Latte Love:

The Columbia’s thermal design will keep coffee warm for up to 4 hours. To maximize this heat retention, it’s best to preheat this press by rinsing it with hot water prior to brewing. This will ensure the stainless steel lining won’t absorb heat from your coffee and will help to keep it hot longer.

What are the dimensions of the 3 cup bodum coffee press? I am considering purchase for travel use.

The 3-cup Columbia press is 6.5" inches tall and about 2.5 inches wide. Given its size and capacity (12 oz), the 3-cup model is perfect for travel.
