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.
