Bodum 1308-16 Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot

I really love my French Press (or Coffee Press if you'd rather call it that). There's one tiny problem that I've always had. Since it's basically just a glass beaker on a stand, the coffee tends to cool off too quickly. The Bodum 1308-16 Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot solves this problem once and for all.

For years whenever I made coffee in my french press I'd end up wrapping the whole thing in a kitchen towel to try to insulate it. That sort of worked, but more times than not I'd end up needing to reheat the coffee in the microwave. That sort of defeats the purpose of making a high quality, wonderful tasting French Press cup of coffee though! Finally there's a solution!

Bodum 1308-16 Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot
I'm really kicking myself for not discovering this much sooner. As you can see, this beauty is made out of stainless steel that has been polished to a near mirror finish.

It will hold thirty-four ounces of coffee (roughly seven 5-ounce cups) and keep them warm for almost two hours. That beats the twenty minutes of my old French Press quite easily!

And this is not just a thermos! You actually make the french press coffee right inside the thing. You'll notice the little unobtrusive plunger handle on the top to the pot.

It's made out of a type of insulated double-wall construction that's ideal for keeping your coffee warm.

You can even use it to make tea if you like.

I can't say enough about this. You can probably tell that I'm a little more excited than a person should be over something like this but, what can I say? If you've consistently used a French Press in the past, then you know how frustrating it can be to have your coffee cool off too quickly. There's nothing you can really do about it! Until Now.

What Are Other People Saying About It?

Ok, you already know what I think about it, but what are other people saying? Do they even care? You bet they do!

At Amazon this little beauty has 231 reviews, which is quite amazing in itself! 156 of them are 5-star and another 38 are 4-star. That's an average of well over 4 1/2 out of 5. (there's also 15 3-star, 12 2-star, and 10 1-star). You don't often see such uniform praise in the coffee world but you do here.

What's The Bottom Line?

If you love French Press Coffee as much as I do but are frustrated when it gets cold too soon, then the Bodum 1308-16 Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot is a solution sent straight from heaven. And here's the real kicker; it retails for $120 but I've found it online for just $57 at the link below. Go buy one now! Heck, buy three (one for your home, one for your office, and one spare just in case!). What are you waiting for?!
