Parisian French Press Cleaning and Maintenance

Attention coffee lovers: Are you looking to keep your BaristasBuddy Parisian French press looking vibrant and clean? Look no further! Follow these simple steps to keep your coffee carafe in tip-top shape.

Step 1. Remove and rinse the filter 

Start by taking out the filter and rinsing it with warm water to remove any remaining coffee grounds. If you have some stubborn coffee fines stuck in the filter, don't worry – we've got you covered. Just skip to the bottom of this page for instructions on how to disassemble the filter unit.

2. Empty the coffee grounds from the carafe

Once you've removed and cleaned the filter, it's time to empty the used coffee grounds from the carafe. We recommend adding them to a compost bin to reduce waste, but if you don't compost, you can dispose of the grounds in your regular garbage disposal.

3. Rinse the carafe with warm, suddy water

After you've emptied most of the coffee grounds, give the carafe a good rinse using warm water and a tiny drop of dish detergent. Use your hand, a cloth, or a light brush to clean the inside of the carafe. After giving it a thorough rinse, empty it out one more time to make sure that all soap has been cleaned out. Do not use a wire brush or wire wool to clean the French press; this may cause damage to the color and to the finish of the unit.

4. Leave to dry

Set the French press aside to dry, or wipe it down with some paper towels or a clean cloth to use it again immediately.

Disassembling The Filter

If you have some particularly stubborn coffee fines stuck in the filter unit, don't worry – we've made disassembly a breeze. Simply hold the bolt at the top of the plunger and unscrew the filters using a counterclockwise motion.

You'll then be able to clean each individual part (there are 3 in total) of the filter unit to get rid of any remaining fines. Once you've rinsed each part, leave them to air-dry or pat them dry with some paper towels, then reassemble the filter unit in the opposite order. Finally, reattach it to the plunger and get ready to enjoy your next rich, delicious cup of French press coffee.

By following these simple steps, you'll be able to keep your BaristasBuddy French press looking beautiful and well-maintained for many brews to come. Happy cleaning!

Important Notes

To ensure the longevity of the color on the Parisian French Press, we recommend hand washing only. It is not recommended to clean the French press in the dishwasher. Washing the French press in the dishwasher may result in damage to the unit and may affect the color and finish. 

Similarly, wire wool, wire brushes or abrasive cleaning tools should not be used to clean the Parisian French press as this may also damage the unit.
