Subject: Bodum French Press 3 1/2 Cups?
 

Is there such a thing as a Bodum 3 1/2 cup French press? I would prefer to stick with Bodum but will consider other makers if it fits what I want. I find their 3 cup version (I have the "Brazil" model) too small to fill one of my mugs but find the 4 cup version (I have the "Chambord" model) to be too big (there is no way that is only 33% bigger than the 3 cup version). This will be for brewing 1 mug for one person.

This is the one I've used for the past two years:

When I want to make less, I use less coffee and less water.

I already have the 3 and 12 cup Brazil and the 4 cup Chambord. It may seem like excessive fussiness but I am looking for one the brews the desired amount at it's full capacity. When I use the 4 cup version to brew 350 ml of coffee, I end up with excessive space under the filter and find that I need too little pressure to press the coffee grinds down. I know it sounds like I am paranoid but I am looking for one that is brewing at it's capacity for i person's use and my mugs are generous.

If you want to end up with 350ml of brewed coffee the 500ml presses would be a good fit, I like the dual walled Columbia.

There isn't really a best pressure for the plunge, other than "as little as possible" some people don't plunge at all & just pour through the mesh held above the liquid. Though you will need to plunge at some point with the Columbia & Espro presses, or any with a fine filter mesh as they trap a good degree of liquid otherwise.
