An entry-price alternative to the Classic cafetière, the Optima 6-Cup Cafetière features a chrome-plated frame, tough borosilicate, heat-resistant glass beaker and a stainless steel filter and plunger assembly. 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 Optima 6-Cup Cafetière has a maximum capacity of 700 ml and so is ideal for brewing up to three 8 oz cups of coffee at a time. Not quite the size you were looking for? Check out our Classic 4-Cup Cafetière or our Classic 8-Cup Cafetière both also made by La Cafetière.
Worried about breakage? Don’t be! Boutik Kafé also stocks replacement beakers for this coffee maker. So there’s absolutely no need to buy a whole new coffee maker if it’s just your beaker that is broken. The other replacement parts that we carry for this cafetière are individual filter gauzes and complete filter sets.
