What do you make your daily java in? For years I owned a small 4 cup plastic base coffee maker, handed down from someone else in my family. My mom had a similar one as well, until the glass carafe broke. Do you have a traditional peculator? Love those too.
Awhile back I wrote a blog about the dangers of plastic coffee pots – the BPA type of dangers – the chemical that has been proven to cause Cancer. If you own one of these plastic coffee makers, it’s time you made the switch. There are excellent alternatives to BPA plastic coffee brews, a few manufacturers do use BPA free plastic (however, you’re still contributing to the production of plastic), but the best alternative is to buy a Bodum French Press.
If you relish the rich taste of fresh pressed coffee – just like those swanky coffee shops in San Fran & Seattle, you’re gonna love the French Press. It takes a little getting used to – you only need ground coffee and hot water – no filter! The entire French Press carafe is made from glass with only minimal plastic which IS BPA free. It’s completely washable, and you can make up to 8 cups (4 oz) at a time.
My mother received one for Christmas from Amazon, and she has adjusted to it after only a few uses. Bodum’s French Press is now on sale through my AmazonStore, so just click on the green Amazon box on the left column & you’ll be eligible not only for the sale price, but also for the super saver shipping with any purchase over $25 or click here too!
