Product Description

The Shin Bistro 2-piece set from Bodum is a perfect gift for your favorite coffee lover. This set includes one Shin Bistro 8-cup coffee press which will brew up to 34-ounces (1-liter), and one 16-ounce (0.47-liter) travel press for brewing coffee while you are on the road. The 8-cup press makes enough coffee to serve up to three people; the travel press brews enough coffee for one person. Accepted worldwide as one of the best ways to brew coffee, the French press brews a well-balanced, full bodied cup of coffee. Simply add your favorite freshly ground coffee to the press. (Bodum recommends adding 1/4-ounce (7 grams) of freshly ground coffee per 4 ounces of water.) Add water, and brew for up to four minutes. Then, press the plunger to keep separate the grounds from your coffee and pour into your favorite mug. If you're using the travel press, you can drink your coffee right from the tumbler. The travel press will keep coffee hot longer due to the insulated thermal mug and a spill-resistant lid is reassuring for people on the go. For best results, the travel press should be hand washed. The Shin Bistro is dishwasher-safe, but hand washing is recommended. For easy cleanup just use a spatula to scoop out the used grounds and then rinse with warm water and dish soap. The travel press is made of durable acrylic and the Shin Bistro's glass beaker is made of Bodum's temperature-safe borosilicate glass.

We have used both and get great coffee every time.

It's still possible to spill a little bit through the "plunger hole."

This French-press "brewer" is the way to go for full-flavored coffee.

I was looking for a French Press on Amazon one day, and about a week or so later this model appeared in my Gold Box for only $20! That was the deal maker, and to my house it came.

This is pretty much like any other glass French Press. My previous one was purchased at Ikea - this model has a finer filter. Where I did OK with regular ground coffee in the ikea model, this one won't plunge correctly as it will get stuck. No big deal - just use the course ground coffee like you should for a french press and you're OK.

Bodium calls this an "8 cup" model, but each "cup" is only 4oz. Don't think that you're going to make a ton of coffee at a time with this model, but you'll get two nice sized coffee mugs full to the top. That's just perfect for my use and if I happen to have a guest over we can both have coffee in one pressing.

The travel press is intriguing. I like the ability to quickly make about 16oz of coffee for the morning commute and take it with me. Previously, I'd just make some coffee and then put it in an actual travel mug. Not much of a difference (just saving 1 thing to clean) and not sure if it's worth spending a lot more just for this capability.

This travel press is plastic, and it has the same type of quality sieve and some rubber around it to ensure that the plastic cup doesn't get scratched up. The seal around the grounds is impressive - you can't get all the liquid through to the "drinkable" side. The lid screws on tightly and there is a plastic piece that locks on top of the drinking hole. With the plunger down all the way, the cup is about 98% spill proof. It's still possible to spill a little bit through the "plunger hole." Bodium claims that the press is well insulated - I don't find it any better than a cheap travel mug.

I have not even had a cup of coffee from this yet and feel compelled to write a review so someone else doesn't make the same mistake. You MUST use coarse ground coffee in this device for it to work properly. The instructions beg you not to use fine ground (you know, 99.9% of the stuff you can buy at the store)as it will malfunction the plunger mechanism and then you won't be able to clean it properly. So guess what? I didn't have any coarse ground coffee just laying around so now I've got to figure out where to get some.

This would have been great information to have prior to the purchase.

I purchased this for a great price on a daily special. I've only used the travel press, and I still haven't got the technique refined. My coffee was overly strong and gritty. I need to keep working on it. I have used French press coffee brewers in the past and have loved them. All I can say is I'm still chewing the grounds, which is not good. So it's not too easy to use, I guess is what I'm saying here. Good luck with this one.

French Press is a perfect solution for a household with only one coffeedrinker. I make just enough coffee for a fresh cup, and since French Press is glass and coffee gets cold quickly left on counter --ensures that I'm drinking either just what I need (1 cup ...vs the tempting 2 or 3!) or that what I'm drinking then is fresh (because I have to heat water for another cup). I was tired of the electric coffeedrips because they take up so much counter or cabinet space, and this was a perfect solution. Haven't given the commuter French Press a whirl yet.

My husband loved European coffee and this has allowed him to brew very fresh European style coffee. The larger press is used when he is at home, and the smaller when he is on the go. They have been proven WELL worth the cost! (Which is a GREAT deal!!)
