The BRAZIL coffee maker incorporates the BODUM motto beautifully: good design doesn't have to be expensive. After all, we want to give everybody a chance to brew an excellent cup of coffee in a green way: just add course ground coffee, hot water and press. No paper filters or plastic cups are needed. The BRAZIL has a heat resistant, borosilicate glass beaker (the standard for all BODUM French press plungers) and a polypropylene handle and base, which make the BRAZIL easy to use and easy to clean. Brewing coffee in the BRAZIL is one of life's great pleasures.
My first French press and was thoroughly amazed at how easy it was. Boil water, grind beans, measure and add the water. Four minutes of steeping and done. Easy to wash, and at first I didn't like how the glass beaker didn't come off of the plastic holder but I'm guessing it will last longer.
It is very difficult to remove the handle to thoroughly clean and dry the outside of the carafe. It's necessary to be able to clean and dry the outside bottom and the inside of the base but the plastic handle is very rigid which makes it difficult to remove the handle and base from the glass carafe.
