Q: How does this come apart to clean? How many filters?

Q: What is the difference between the caffettiera and the brazil?
A: The Caffettiera French Press features a stainless-steel outer frame and Chambord style lid while the Brazil French Press features a lightweight design that uses a single piece base and handle that connects to the lid without needing a full carafe frame. They both include a stainless-steel plunger and filter that is precisely fit into a borosilicate glass carafe.submitted byBodum - 9 months agoBrand expert
