When Bodum took over a small clarinet factory in Normandy in 1982, it was not because of the fine orchestra clarinets they were producing but because of a relatively unknown coffee maker called the Chambord which they, by coincidence, produced as well.
Bodum combined the skills of these Normandy craftsmen with modern production, and the price became affordable to the many people who loved the taste of the coffee brewed in this unique coffee maker, later known as the French press coffee brewer. |
Thanks to Bodum and thanks to the increasing need for better coffee, the French press coffee maker became one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world. The design has not changed a bit from the original drawings, and Bodum still makes the Chambord with the same painstaking care and knowledge they learned from those proud craftsmen in windy Normandy.
The ease of brewing... the delicious smell and taste of French roasted coffee have not changed, but the price we offer you today for a Chambord is no longer the price of the past.
Plowshares loves the French Press and believes it is the brewing method which most closely matches the cupping table.
