Best Cafetières in 2021

Updated 11-04-2021 – Mia Cohen

Looking for a simple and elegant way to make your coffee? Then you should take a look at the best cafetières in the UK as they provide the needed experience. A cafetière is also called a French press and is simple and easy to use. All you need to do is simply spoon in your grounded coffee, pour in boiled water, and place the lid on the top. You will need to do some plunging to take the coffee grounds to the bottom after a few minutes but that’s about it.

The best cafetières in the UK come with a well-built base and good quality plunger. You can opt for cheaper cafetières too, but they usually don’t have the sturdiness and quality, plus you don’t want to embarrass yourself in front of the guests by breaking it. There are some expensive options as well, but they all make the same cup of coffee and you’d be better off paying less for an equally great cafetière.

A cafetière usually comes with two major components, a cylindrical container and a filter that resides inside it. There is a plunger at the top, push it down and the filter will push down the coffee grounds, leaving you with a rich and ground-free coffee that can be poured easily. There are plastic options if you are prone to breaking your kitchen accessories, there are steel ones that keep the coffee hotter for longer, there are stone based ones for style, and there are glass ones if you want to see the filter/plunger duo in action.

Le Creuset Stoneware Cafetière

One of the first things you’ll notice about the Le Creuset Stoneware Cafetière is its beautiful design and color. It is available in several colors, but we opted for the orange one simply because of how strikingly pretty it looked. If you have a wooden countertop or coffee table, the sharp contrast will make the Le Creuset Stoneware Cafetière really pop.

On the business side of things, the Le Creuset Stoneware Cafetière does a remarkable job of making you a great cup of coffee. It comes with enameled stoneware, has a stainless steel mesh, the plunger is also stainless steel. It is 1 liter in capacity and is quite easy to clean. The smooth pour spout makes it easy to pour a cup and the big handle aids as well. We also like how the cafetière comes with a 10-year warranty, but judging how sturdy it feels, we doubt we will need that. You can enjoy your coffee in the best recliner chairs in front of the best electric log burner.

Key features:
  • Volcanic color is stunning
  • Steel mesh and plunger
  • Comes with a 10-year warranty
Bodum Chambord 8

The Bodum Chambord 8 has the 8 in its name because it makes 8 cups. We got the 1-liter version for testing simply because we all wanted to try out a cup of coffee from seemingly the best cafetière in the UK. Did the Bodum Chambord 8 pass our expectations? Yes, and it exceeded them as well. The chrome-plated frame looks elegant and the coffee-making experience is very refined.

The French press is also the go-to choice of coffee tasters to check the quality of the beans. We also selected a special blend and even used one of the best kitchen scales to weigh the beans before grounding. The Bodum Chambord 8 is made with heat resistant borosilicate glass which is crucially a flavor-neutral material and is resistant to thermal shocks. The inside has stainless steel parts which makes it durable and sturdy. The reusable stainless steel filter is also environment friendly.

The lid also has a knob that doesn’t get warm which is always a plus.
