* Don't like the free coffee available at work
* Too cheap to buy a single-cup brewing station (and I hear they're big and loud)
* BUT, not interested in boiling water and grinding coffee every day
* And, don't like hand-washing things
Basically, I'm really lazy! Guess what, this French press still works for me.
I buy a pound of coffee at Starbucks and ask them to grind it for a French press. I keep it in two Ziplock bags from then on.
Each morning I put three scoops into the BonJour and use the hot water tap on our work coffee machine (see the customer image I posted). Wait 4 minutes, press and drink!
I rinse it all out afterwards and wipe with paper towels; once a week I take it home for a dishwasher cycle.
I'm sure that any coffee connoisseur would CRINGE at how I do this, but I'm not aiming to make the world's best cup... only to exceed the crud I am otherwise stuck with at work. I think the next best alternative would be to buy Starbucks Via packets.
***Update after 6 months***
Well I'm still very happy with this purchase BUT the plastic carafe is not indestructible. Mine has two cracks that originated at the upper rim and one is extending and becoming problematic. I'm fairly sure it happened in the dishwasher, though I don't think it was jostled around or anything. When I do replace this (soon) I will get one made of glass and I will get a bigger one. The size was not an issue at first, but this coffee is literally so good that one big mug no longer suffices!
One other tip--Starbucks will sell you a 1/2 pound of ground coffee, which is a LOT better for keeping it fresh. Be sure to specify that you want it coarsely ground for use in a press.Read more ›
Note- ignore "3 cups" It's 12 ounces and actually a little less since you can't fill it to the top or you won't be able to press.
This french press housing seems very durable, but the press portion does not. The cup is pretty small and barely makes my regular size coffee. I simply use my typical amount of grinds and then add some extra water to my mug. Cleaning this thing is kind of a pain, because the cup is so small. I kind of tap what I can out and then use water for the rest.
My gripe about the press durability is more related to the rubber seal than the actual press. I already had the rubber seal come detached from the press screen. It simply fit back into place, but it was a nuisance. The seal isn't great either, you get grinds above the screen, but the spout strainer catches most.
Overall, it is fine for occasional camping/backpacking/traveling. I would not recommend this for daily kitchen use. Stick with a Bodum for that.
not from being dropped, but from hot water.
plus it's made of plastic and it gets a nasty brown stain from the coffee.
not worth it.

I love that it's plastic because I've broke countless glass carafes previously. That being said, the spout part on the lid broke within a month. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Amazon Customer

I love french pressed coffee and was looking for a smaller version for work. This is NOT a cup press, American or European style. I can barely get 12 ounces brewed. Read morePublished 9 months ago by MadreJen

Very disappointing. The 1st one cracked and broke in the filter area and the replacement fell apart where the area where the nut holds things together. Read morePublished 10 months ago by cynthia greene
This is a great little press. Unfortunatly the bottom plate broke through at the nut after less than a year use. A washer would distribute the stress better at that locationPublished 10 months ago by Shasta
