Easy to transport, clean and use, the French Press Cafetière is the classic way to enjoy a quality coffee. Buy one to add an air of sophistication and elegance to your breakfast table, or as a chic gift for the caffeine lover in your life.
Tom Dixon – Brew Stainless Steel Cafetière 750ml
This British designer is renowned for having been self-taught, as well as his range of contemporary tea and coffee making accoutrements. Here, he’s created a precision-engineered plunger for the perfect ‘brew’. Carved from polished stainless steel, the outer shell is glamorously mirrored, contrasted by a matte black handle. Use it to create your own thoroughly modern, coffee-making ritual.
Le Creuset – Stoneware Coffee Press, 1L
With this model, matte black extends to the full press (although it’s also available in Le Creuset’s other signature shades, including a dramatic volcanic orange). The stoneware brand is known for its hardwearing and practical, yet eternally fashionable kitchenware. Its density ensures the coffee is kept evenly hot for longer and has a thermal resistance (so your table won’t get scorched). It can be used in the oven or dishwasher too, with no worries about fading, chipping or scratching.
Nordic Kitchen – Coffee Press Termo RS
Complement a Scandi kitchen style, with a Nordic model press from the designer Eva Solo. Brushed stainless steel provides extra heat retention, doubling as a dual-layer vacuum jug. Offering a guaranteed drip-free experience, the oak handle maintains a secure grip. The stylish minimalist Solo range includes a matching kettle.
L’Objet – Ionic French Press
Made from bright white Limoges porcelain, this press is accented with a brass lid and handle. It was inspired by Ionic classical architecture, featuring a vertically fluted body. Ideal as a present, it comes in a gorgeous gift box and can be accessorised with other items, including matching salt and pepper mills and a lidded dish.
Alessi – Three-cup Press Filter Coffee Maker 240ml
Following a more traditional cafetiere design, but with a contemporary twist, the Alessi is made from a combination of mirror-polished stainless steel and heat-resistant glass. It takes fine or coarse ground filter coffee or can be used to brew tea and steep infusions.
Royal Doulton’s – Coffee Studio French Press
Royal Doulton’s French press is microwave and dishwasher safe. A handcrafted finish includes a satin dipped grey glaze, on a base of white porcelain – the dipped colour creates a relaxed artisanal look. Baristas helped to design this cafe-style press, which is part of the brand’s heritage 1815 collection (commemorating the year in which John Doulton founded his pottery collection). Products from the line come presented in a kraft box.
