Great cafetiere - cup guidance NOT accurate
on 22 January 2012
This cafetiere is great. I've had Bodum ones before, but the size, shape and robustness of this is superb. I have recently used it in a pretty harsh environment and it faired brilliantly. I particularly love the size and shape of this 4-cup version. Quite wide and stout, rather than tall and thin - the picture used on this listing is NOT accurate. Try looking at the Le Cafetiere website for an accurate picture. However, to describe it as a 4-cup is a little misleading. For us Brits who tend to use mugs, this will give you 2 mugs of coffee. If you're using french style coffee cups, then maybe 4 is accurate.
The price here on Amazon was OK - although a friend did get one one on a particularly good offer at a supermarket a few months back.
Solid good quality cafetiere and a great shape. The filter is a great fit - i've never had any stray grinds in my coffee.
