The La Cafetière “Classic” original 4-Cup Cafetière is a coffee maker made from top quality stainless steel. The beaker is high quality borosilicate (heat-resistant) glass and the filter and plunger are made from stainless steel. The French press makes a very rich, flavourful cup of coffee. Also, it’s really easy to use. You simply pour the coffee grounds into the beaker, pour the hot water over them, allow the mixture sit for a while, press down the plunger and then serve! We always recommend using a coffee scale to achieve consistency in your brewing. The French press beakers do not have any etched volume markings, so the scale makes the measuring of the water and coffee a whole lot easier.
The 4-Cup Cafetière has a maximum capacity of 600 ml and so is ideal for brewing one to two 8 oz cups of coffee at a time. Need something a bit larger? Check out our Optima 6-Cup Cafetière or our Classic 8-Cup Cafetière.
Worried about breakage? Don’t be! Boutik Kafé also stocks the replacement beakers for this coffee maker. The other replacement parts that we carry for it are individual filter gauzes and complete filter sets.
