I broke our french press last night! Oh no! It was on the drying rack and I bumped it off while loading the dishwasher, breaking the carafe. We have the option of getting a new carafe, but the one we bought is so cheap that I’m not sure we’ll be able to order the carafe and I don’t know if other brand replacements will fit it.

There are a lot of pretty options for french presses, so I thought I’d shop a few before I commit to purchasing the replacement part.

EILEEN | Coffee maker, 3 cup, 0.35 l, 12 oz Shiny | Bodum Online Shop

1. EILEEN 3 cup, 12 oz coffee maker from Bodum: I really love the pattern around the carafe on this one, and the color palette is great.

BEAN SET | Iced coffee maker, 1.5 l, 51 oz Red | Bodum Online Shop

2. BEAN SET 1.5 l, 51 oz red iced coffee maker from Bodum: The one that just broke is about this color, but it didn’t make iced coffee. Appealing! I also really liked how bright it was. Our kettle is bright yellow so they looked pretty good together.

3. Bonjour Maximus 8-Cup French Press from Williams-Sonoma: I love the lid on this one! The dome shape and the metal makes it look so sleek.

4. Melior Bodum Single Cup French Coffee Press by LessToxicToaster on Etsy: Speaking of sleek, I think this one is so cute and vintage. A single cup press wouldn’t be completely unrealistic for us, though maybe we’d want two.

5. Red Bodum french press coffee machine Danish by CuratorvsCurator: Luckily, there is another, similar press available on Etsy right now! This one holds 4-6 cups, perfect!

6. Mid Century french press by RueDesLouves on Etsy: This one is another vintage find. That polished chrome looks so shiny!

Copper Coffee Date by Etsy

I love copper hues and I love coffee. Why not put them together? That industrial copper hanging light totally looks like it belongs in a coffee shop with worn leather furniture and the smell of espresso. Place some chocolate covered coffee beans in that beautiful paper mache bowl and use the espresso tamper made from a block of copper and a vintage brass doorknob.

I love how that copper-y orange color in the table cloth ties it all together while adding some pops of color. I imagine the copper gilded driftwood and cut moose doorstop as the perfect table centerpieces. Serve up the coffee in those beautiful copper and ceramic mugs and some yummy pastries on those handmade copper glass plates. Fun!

Hope you loved this roundup of beautiful copper and coffee inspired products. Have a wonderful Thursday!
