These Le Creuset French Presses are part of Le Creuset's new Cafe Collection, which brings you a variety of beautiful items designed for coffee making and serving, in a variety of Le Creuset's beautiful finishes.
Many experts feel that coffee prepared in a French press is the best way to make coffee. Coarsely ground coffee beans are steeped in boiling water, and then filtered away by plunging the mesh sieve through the press. Direct contact between the beans and the water means a stronger flavor. (Loose tea leaves can also be steeped in a French press - for those that prefer tea to coffee).
Features of Le Creuset's Stoneware French Presses include:
- 12 or 27-ounce capacity
- High-quality exterior enamel protects against metal marks and other damage
- Less than 1% porosity, blocking moisture absorption which can lead to cracking, crazing and rippling
- Resistant to staining and flavor/odor absorption
- Unique clay mixture creates a very dense material when fired, maintaining even temperatures and preventing scorching
Respect for tradition and authenticity has been Le Creuset's guiding principle since 1925, and their innovative designs and exceptional quality ensure that they remain relevant today. With the consistent qualities of authenticity, originality and innovation, Le Creuset maintains a connection to both heritage and modernity.
