Decent for occasional use,
This review is from: Primula Tempo Coffee Press 6 Cup - Black (Kitchen)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Full disclosure: I'm not really a coffee drinker. I bought this press because I often have coffee-drinking friends over and I wanted to be able to offer it to them. I picked this up because I've heard from most of my hardcore coffee friends that a French press offers a superior cup by reducing the amount of acidity and bitterness inherent in coffee.
This Primula Press is plastic and it feels like the sort of thing that I'll need to replace eventually. It's reasonably priced, so it will probably serve its purpose before it gets used up. If you're a regular coffee drinker, you'll definitely want something more substantial.
I'm no good at making coffee myself, but this is fairly fool-proof (and I usually have someone showing me how to do it anyway). In my limited experience, the results actually do taste pretty good, especially compared to the overly bitter brews that Starbucks offers. Overall, this a good press of occasional use. Everyday coffee drinkers should look for something else.
