Bodum, a world renown Danish company (with headquarters in Switzerland) known for quality glass and kitchenware is hosting a two day sample sale at the Starrett-Lehigh building. Located way out west, we’re talking West Side Highway territory, the sale was not the most accessible but the bargains warranted the long trek.

When I arrived during lunch time the place was buzzing with eager shoppers feeding into their caffeine addiction. Upon entry inside the showroom there is a small table with canvas shopping bags to make carrying all your goodies that much easier. There were rows and rows of French coffee presses lining the shelves along both walls. Available is various sizes like 3 cup or 8 cup capacity, they also came in wide variety of styles and colors like Bean, Caffettiera, Kenya, Brazil, Eileen, and Chambord. The choices were vast but Eileens in particular were going quick. On hand were also sets like the 70th Anniversary Edition featuring glass cups or cappuccino frothers. They even had a french press specifically for iced coffee or cafe glacé. Pour Over coffee makers were available as well.
