The Eileen Coffee Press from Bodum is a French Press coffeemaker named after designer Eileen Gray. It combines the legendary name with a design capable of withstanding the endless strain of keeping the patrons of cafes in Paris hopped up on their favorite brew. Not unlike most things the French claim as their own, this coffeemaker too is a work of art and perfection. It produces a brew that is clearly superior to the pedestrian stuff that comes out of your run-of-the-mill electric coffee maker. It’s sized just right for brewing eight cups of coffee or tea, which is about what you expect from caffeine addicts who want this machine for their home. The heat-resistant glass carafe and all the parts of the Eileen Coffee Press are dishwasher-safe and easy to clean.
