Product Description

La Cafetiere is so popular and ever-present in Europe that the word Cafetiere is used to mean French press. From its European roots it has now made it's way into U.S. homes. With a sleek yet sturdy look and feel, the Classic model has a chrome-plated finish, glass carafe made of high quality heat-resistant glass and filter and plunger made from stainless steel.

The Classic Cafetiere is available in 3, 4, 8 and 12 cup sizes.

A Note About Coffee & Cups

Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

  • Classic - If traditional is what you want, traditional is what you'll get with this French press. Good looks, high quality materials and great tasting coffee have made this a European staple.
  • Life Happens - In case of breakage, Bodum replacement glass carafes fit La Cafetiere models.
  • Clean-Up - Clean up isn't always easy as many grounds and silt get stuck within the plunger's filter. Carefully rinse after each and unscrew the filter assembly for deeper cleaning.

Hello. Do you sell replacement carafes for this press?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2014
Best Answer: I'm sorry, we do not carry replacement glass specifically for the La Cafetiere brand. You can check if the Bodum replacement glass dimensions will work: But it may not be the right fit.

How To Make Excellent French Press Coffee

Coffee 101: Coffee Press Yields


It makes enoughReview by chucku
I have been a near daily user of Bodum press pots for years. However the largest capacity I could find was their eight cup models. I just took my new twelve cup La Cafetiere Classic on its maiden voyage, Filled the bottom beaker of my eight cup Santos to the neck to fill my whistling kettle. Measured my medium roasted Ethiopian beans (five rounded 1/8 cup scoops). Ground at setting 35 on my Baratza Encore. Steep for four minutes. Coffee Perfection. Everything I love about the Bodum but more of it. This will be my new daily driver. (Posted on 9/22/2013)
Good size French press for a businessReview by Robert
I've had this product for a few weeks now. I use it everyday and like it so far. The glass feels a little thin but I bought it for its size not how thick or thin the glass is. As far as the company goes I love ordering stuff and watching the video they make I wish they had a store like this in San Diego. (Posted on 3/21/2013)
