This review is from: 20oz French Press Coffee Maker
I like strong coffee that takes like coffee smells. Lots of times this is accompanied by bitterness, but not with the French press. A simple design with a straight-walled glass beaker, a stainless screen on a piston/plunger, and a carrying handle so you can walk back to your desk from the hot water dispenser and not burn your fingers. My company recently eliminated free coffee in the cafeteria and from machines in the office areas. This device brews coffee at my desk and does not violate the prohibition on electrical appliances in cubicles. Using 1 tbsp for half or 2 tbsps for full 20 oz. brew, steep for 4 minutes with brief initial stirring, then press and pour off the coffee to your mug. I preheat my mug on a coffee warmer or with hot water from the dispenser.
If you have high cholesterol issues you should research findings related to unfiltered coffee preparation techniques. You may want to choose a press that uses a paper filter, but if you have normal cholesterol this press will give you great results.
