The French press coffee maker is the simplest of all brewing systems, where coarsely ground beans meet hot water right off the boil. The right temperature (92–96 °C, 195–205 °F) brings the optimal extraction power for the essential oils in the beans to develop their full flavor profile in just four minutes. An easy press on the plunger locks the grinds at the bottom and stops the brewing process.

How to brew French press coffee:
For each 4-ounce cup, put 1 rounded tablespoon or 1 Bodum scoop of coarse-ground coffee into the pot.
Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot. Leave a minimum of 1 inch of space at the top. Stir with a plastic spoon.
Place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Turn lid to close off the pour spout opening. Do not press down. Let the coffee brew for 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes press down the plunger and enjoy.

Now for the kicker; I decided to splurge for a new lid as a gift to my spouse and myself and contacted customer support to inquire as how to get one. Two days later I received an email response of what amounted to being flipped the bird... too bad... your problem...bye.
For our part we don't want to create waste just for our convenience so we will not be replacing the entire unit yet, particularly since it is entirely unnecessary... just sell us a %$&*ing lid! It's not like we're asking them to stand by their product claims and give it to us for free.
We're super upset by the waste and even more so by the response of the company.
No more Bodum products... of which we have a few.
Hey Bodum! Right back at you! (my middle finger here)
those inferior models, when closed, leave a significant gap so the contents lose heat at a much, much faster rate.
The top of the Bodum Columbia Insulated French Press Coffee Maker Pot is plastic, not steel. While the plunger mechanism used in the glass version is metal and only has a plastic fastener, almost all of the plunger mechanism for the steel version is plastic.
The silicone ring around the plunger traps coffee grinds in the plunger better than the steel version used in the glass container. However, what often happens is that liquid is also trapped behind the plunger. I normally use 1 2/3 cups of water for in the glass version and this results in a little more than one coffee cup of coffee. When the same amount of water was used in the steel version, it yielded less than one cup of coffee. And that one cup of coffe was weak. If I raised and lowered the plunger, I could get more coffee out. So this steel press is wasteful since you need to use more water and ground coffee to yield the same amount of coffee as the glass version. So less coffee and it is weaker than the glass version. Not a good outcome.
Overall, this French press does look nice and it does keep coffee warm. But, it has a lot of plastic parts in contact with the hot water and it requires more coffee than the glass version to make a cup of coffee at the equivalent strength. Overall, it is a disappointment and I have gone back to using my glass Bodum French press.
