Sorry for the long-winded review that follows. If you want the short version:

This is a handsome, sturdy french press that works very well. The fact that it is double-walled (insulated) contributes to better coffee...just don't ruin your coffee by letting it sit in this press for very long. Insulated does NOT mean you should let your coffee stay in the carafe for hours (not even for a half hour) unless you like your coffee bitter. The four- rather than five-star rating is a size issue...even though the 1-liter version can hold 1 liter of water, it can't effectively make 1 liter of coffee (details below).

Here is the long-winded version, including some general tips on making french press coffee:

First, french press coffee is great. The lack of a paper filter is what gives french press coffee its much richer taste (paper filters absorb some of the pleasant-tasting oils from the ground coffee). This particular french press does a fine job but accept the fact that you may have to make a few batches in order to get that perfect cup!

Second, the details:

1. French presses are fairly simple devices. They depend mainly on the fine mesh filter and plunger. In that regard, this is a typical french press. The plunger fits snugly, with little chance for grounds to "escape" into your coffee. The mesh is finer than some other presses I've used, less fine than some others. No complaints there.

2. I do have a complaint about the size: I have the 1-liter version, and it does indeed hold one liter of water. But once you add roughly 55 grams of coffee, there's very little room for the plunger.

OK... so I have a caffeine problem. I admit it. I'm already at step one - I recognize the effect it has over me, but without it, life would be even more unmanageable.

I usually start the day with a hot shot of espresso from my Rancilio Silvia. When I need a refill mid-morning, I move to my Aero Press, and it makes great brew - especially with a fresh batch of whatever the genius buyer from Tonx has found in some far corner of Africa or Latin America. Aero Press, if you haven't discovered it, makes the best doggone coffee in single serve doses. It's easy, fast and turns out great coffee, time after time. Amazon sells them and they are fabulous bargains.

When I need coffee to serve guests after dinner, I have the Bona Vita 8 cupper that my son and daughter-in-law gave me... but what about that in-between coffee need -- say, three or four great cups of coffee that will be just perfect for a small gathering? Sure, the Aero Press could churn out four cups, but slowly and tediously. The Bona Vita really is overkill, and excels only when pushed to capacity.

The solution, I found, is this Francois and Mimi french press. It holds about 5-5oz cups of coffee and thanks to its double wall construction, holds the heated coffee longer than an ordinary glass french press. It's a bit awkward getting used to, but by the time I brewed my third pot of coffee in it, I had revealed all its secrets.

Looks - this press is gorgeous. It deserves a place on the dining room table after a great meal with guests. It is a little over 10 inches tall and has a polished, almost pewter like finish to it. It is relatively easy to maintain, and a good toweling off will keep its gorgeous looks going.

This is a great coffee press. If you are used to french press coffee this is the model for you.

Love:
Everything from A-Z is stainless steel. No potentially harmful plastics and no glass to break
Very easy to clean, no leaking in the double walls
Double wall gives you a little more thermal retention that you would expect from a single wall press
Not heavy, easy to handle

I find the conical shape really amusing. It almost looks like a dunces hat and I keep out on the counter. That feeling may be different for some. Others that have seen it in our house have had less enthusiastic responses, but I love the shape.

Size: 34-OunceColor: Stainless Steel Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I'm addicted to coffee, I love coffee and I owned many coffee makers in my life, and so far, the best tasting coffee experience I've had is with brewed coffee in the Francois et Mimi double wall French coffee press. It took some getting used to it, but the result is so worthy. After reading some recommendations of how to make coffee with a French coffee press and even watching videos online about it, I developed my own faster method. One I have to do every morning, so I don't have the time to carefully measure, grind the coffee beans or to use gourmet details.
I ended using the same water amount that I would put into my electric coffee maker, yes, the same amount of water and the same amount of coffee, and the same type of coffee too. I tried grinding coffee beans and at the end, I tested both, and the difference is not worthy the time and money.

So, yes, one can use regular ground coffee. The water I boil it on a separate pot and when it gets boiling to the point of bubbles, I pour the water in the French coffee press where I previously had spooned the ground coffee at the bottom of it, after the hot water is in it, I place the plunger on top without pressing it down, and go to get something else done, like starting breakfast, or like waking up my child. By the time I return to the kitchen and to the French coffee press, the coffee is ready. Then I slowly press down the plunger until it reaches the bottom, then I turn it around until it reaches the opening of the spout and pour it into my coffee mug. One word of caution, unlike regular coffee makers, this coffee is truly hot, so remember to take little sips at first.
