Enjoy coffee, espresso and cappuccino in color with Le Creuset’s new Cafe Collection. Some say coffee prepared in a French press is the way every cup should be savored. Coarsely ground coffee beans are steeped in boiling water, and then filtered away by plunging the mesh sieve through the press. Direct contact between the beans and the water means a stronger flavor. Loose tea leaves can also be steeped in a French press.
Le Creuset's French press features dense stoneware that blocks moisture absorption to prevent cracking, crazing, and rippling. The impermeable exterior enamel reists stains and scratches from metal utensils and the nearly-nonstick glazed interior easily releases foods for quick cleanup. Dishwasher safe.
