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 produced as well. The reason the French press coffee maker has become one of the most popular coffeemakers in the world is pure and simple, taste. The materials (glass and stainless steel) are completely taste-free so nothing comes between your ground coffee beans. This is exactly the reason why coffee tasters use this method to determine the quality of coffee beans. No paper filter not only means no waste, but that the coffee beanís essential oils go directly to your cup, delivering the flavor that is lost on paper filters. Simplicity works best and is the reason why the Chambordís design has not changed a bit from its original drawing. 32 oz capacity.
Bodum - visionary innovation for more than 60 years. "Good design doesn't have to be expensive" - Peter Bodum.
Bodum, a family owned company, was founded in 1944 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Peter Bodum. The founder succeeded in positioning Bodum internationally already in the 1960's owing to his unique concept: development of products, which consistently pay tribute to functionality, quality and affordability.
At the companies early stage, the founder recognized the importance of industrial design and this visionary approach laid the groundwork for what Bodum stands for today.
Since 1974 Bodum has produced more than 100 million of French Coffee Presses and 30 million teapots, and continues to broaden its collection of beautifully designed everyday life products.
Today Bodum offers its customers everything from the latest coffee and tea making products to tabletops, kitchen, storage, textiles, home and office products. Some of Bodum's concept stores even include a cafe, where Bodum's own selection of coffees and teas are served.
