Product Description

Product Packaging: Frustration-Free Packaging

Classic design French press consists of a narrow cylindrical glass jug, equipped with a lid and a stainless plunger, which fits tightly in the cylinder glass beaker and which has a fine wire mesh acting as a filter. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the glass jug. A French press enquires coffee of a more coarse grind than that used for a drip brew coffee filter, such as produced by a burr mill grinder rather than the whirling blade variety, as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. Because the coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grinds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter, coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee's flavor and essential oils, which would become trapped in a traditional drip brew machine's paper filters. French pressed coffee is usually stronger and thicker and has more sediment than drip-brewed coffee.

This particular press is very easy to use and clean.
Amber Anderson
The filter screen would not screw onto the plunger (threads were either stripped or mis-matched) and no matter how it was screwed on, the screen just fell off.

My husband and I love coffee we make using this french press!

I've had this for a few days. So far so good. By 8-cups they mean 8 4oz servings or coffee cups. I think. Holds 32oz, not 64oz which is the official 8 cup measurement. Got it on sale at Macy's with a coupon for $15. You need a scoop of ground coffe for each 4 oz of water.

It works well and looks nice. The biggest problem was that the base weld broke only a few days after first use. We do not beat on things we own so it was disappointing

Wife bough the pot at the grocery store on sale for $11. The next day, the thing throws a crack while making a half-pot.

I looked at it when I got home, and made the following observations:

The "stainless" looks suspect. Might be chrome plated mild steel.

The band that attaches to the top of the handle contacts the glass in 3 places, with enough space to fit a matchbook cover in about halfway around. I can't tell you how much force the band is exerting on the glass, except to say that it was apparently enough to cause it to crack.

The poor workmanship extends to the feet, which do not sit evenly on the glass. I'm glad the unit cracked up top and not on the bottom.

Definitely a delicate coffee press. I've had ones that are a bit more "hardy" so I caution that owners be very careful with this one when cleaning and storing. Other than that, it does the job. It's a nice inexpensive press to have around that cleans really well, makes a decent amount of coffee or tea (2 large cups), and doesn't let tons of grounds slip through. I would recommend just as long as you're careful with it.

This is among the top 3 items to enter my kitchen.

Awhile ago I purchased through Amazon a drip coffee maker made by Cuisinart with a built-in water boiler. The purpose of the machine was to have access to boiling water for tea and a coffee machine at the same time.

I have been living blind for quite some time as I now know since this french press. My coffee tastes fuller, if there could be any possible way to explain it other than that I would. And the remaining coffee grounds I mix with cold sink water, swish it around to make it loose, and either dump it in the garden or dump it down the toilet.

Coffee grounds are an amazing natural plant food, so don't be afraid to let the grounds set on top of the dirt.

On top of making great coffee, not needing paper filers, not full of plastic like the coffee machine I mentioned which was completely plastic(minus the wires, and heating elements, and display) this also makes tea a much simpler task.

I have traveled to China twice and both times I returned with loose leaf tea. Some pressed black tea and some finer green teas that are very easy to become bitter if over-steeped. Just 1-2 minutes steeping the finer loose teas I have created a true reminder of how the tea tasted while I was in China. Of course I was in different places in China, the main city I was in being Changhsa, and there were different people making me different teas. Be careful to not steep loose tea too long, as will become extremely bitter to the point you probably can't drink it. This press just eliminates all the hassle loose teas since they are treated just like the coffee grounds. Though the tea leaves can be brewed with this press multiple times.

This coffee press is awesome! It works equally well for 1 or 3 people, even up to 4 if you're okay with sharing your delicious fresh pressed coffee :) I've even tapped it against our porcelain sink a few times while washing (not on purpose) and it's held up fine. Great buy!

The coffee press is heavy and very durable. It's simply to clean because I just put the whole thing in the dishwasher.
