The BEAN French press coffee maker is based on our iconic French press brewing system, with one rather useful upgrade: an innovative locking lid that retains the heat of your freshly brewed cup of joe for longer and prevents accidental spillages.
This modern French press coffee maker is a stylish addition to any kitchen. The premium quality borosilicate glass carafe is wrapped in protective and colorful BPA-free plastic – simply choose your color to match your style! The lid is held in place by a clever silicone gasket that has an insulating effect on your coffee, but opens with a simple push of the lever when you’re ready to pour. And of course, this environmentally friendly method of brewing still offers the most important thing of all – a full-bodied, flavorsome and delicious cup of coffee!

How it Works
- The French press system is the simplest way to brew rich, flavorful coffee.
- Place the BEAN on a flat surface, hold the handle firmly, and pull the plunger up and out of the carafe.
- Add one rounded teaspoon or one Bodum scoop of coarsely ground coffee for each cup/4oz water.
- Pour hot water into the carafe (about 92-96ºC) leaving a minimum of 2.5cm/1inch at the top, and stir with a plastic or wooden spoon.
- Place the plunger unit on top of the pot and turn the lid so the pour spout is closed to retain the heat.
- Leave four minutes to brew, then slowly lower the plunger. Turn the lid to open the pour spout and pour your delicious cup of joe.
