Make a delicious tasting cup of coffee like a world class Barista
For decades, a french press is simply the best at making the purest cup of coffee espresso or tea. Its classic method effectively extracts any coffee bean's essential oils, delivering bold unique flavor directly to your cup, that is otherwise lost in paper filters
Smart Barista's know the foundation of a great cup of coffee starts with a reliable & well built coffee espresso tea press
Plunger and filter parts constructed with flimsy plastic & rubber are destine to fail. So we designed a 3 piece stainless steel infuser filter system ensuring taste-free parts so nothing comes between you & your coffee beans
Also, a poor frame design with a brittle glass teapot will likely lead to accidental cracks with typical everyday use. These conditions is the difference whether you enjoy your french press for a few months or for many years to come
The fun modern design is inspired by top Baristas from around the world that demand durability & style
Our high quality glass teapot is specially made from borosilicate glass, making it resistant to thermal shock, great for camping. We have taken extra care by thoughtfully wrapping the large pot with our protective design to minimize breakage but not at the expense of its looks. Our exciting tea espresso coffee press maker collection will absolutely lively-up any kitchen counter
During summer, this versatile coffee maker can brew cold iced coffee & ice tea.
Have a Mom, Dad, best friend or family couples who loves to brew coffee espresso or tea? This makes for great gift ideas for those perfect Christmas presents, birthday gifts or nurses gift for men & women alike, him or her

After a year of faithful service I broke my Bodum carafe and set out to see if there was anything better before plunking down $20 on a replacement carafe. Like you, I found KONA at the top of the best sellers list for french presses. Reviews all generally seem favorable and with a 34-oz carafe if I didn't like the piece parts I could reuse my Bodum components. Either of these will brew a fine pot of tea or coffee, the quality of the components will dictate the longevity of these pots however. For anyone else in a similar situation or anyone trying to decide between the 2 pots, here are the key differences.
In the attached pictures, the KONA pieces are on the left, Bodum on the right. In the spring comparison picture the Bodum is on the bottom.
Both use borosilicate glass which is supposed to be more resistant to thermal shock but my Bodum broke easily on my granite counter.
KORA - carafe cannot be separated from its plastic frame
Bodum - carafe can be separated from metal frame
KORA uses a very thin plastic that can be easily squeezed from the edges. Entire lid rotates when positioning to pour
Bodum uses metal for the outer lid which feels heavier and more premium with an isolated plastic piece that rotates independently when positioning to pour
Spiral plate (the plate with holes and spring):
KONA uses 2 rows of holes in their plate which go from small to large. The metal used in the spring is a smaller gauge.
Bodum uses 3 rows of holes in their plate which range from very small to medium. The metal used in the spring is a thicker gauge.
This is an important distinction between the pots and will attribute to longevity of the screens between the pots.
KONA uses a very basic filter with no added support for the center post. Over time this hole will elongate and require replacement of the screen.
Bodum uses a screen mesh with a reinforced center for the post. The screen in the picture I've included is my original screen, over a year old and still working fine.
It appears that the cutouts are approximately the same size so it should be safe to assume that Bodum allows more liquid to flow.
KONA uses a 3-hole cutout pattern
Bodum uses a 4-hole cutout pattern
All of this said, I feel the higher price tag for the Bodum Chambord is justified. The lid, spring and filter being made of higher grade materials or design is where the extra cost lives. What this KONA did for me however, was replace my broken carafe and gave me a spare set of plates and a light duty filter for less than a replacement Bodum carafe.
So should you buy the Kona? My humble recommendations:
First french press pot - buy the Bodum
Replacement carafe for broken Bodum - buy the Kona and reuse your Bodum parts (assuming you don't mind not using your Bodum frame)
I'ved tried a couple French Presses, including the $20.00 Bodum French Press & the SterlingPro coffee press, and this is my favorite one so far. Since all of the french presses essentially work the same, there's not much variation in the quality of the coffee (they all taste delicious!). Though this model is a bit more expensive, you're paying for a much better design.
For those who don't know how french presses work (I didn't know when I first got one), I'll offer a short explanation. You take some coarse ground coffee (which you can get from stores or a manual grinder), put it in the french press, and then pour in hot water. This leads to a richer taste than traditional drip brewers, since all the grounds are completely immersed in hot water, and all the oils of the coffee ground aren't filtered out. After letting it sit for some time (usually no more than 4 minutes), you press down the grounds slowly, and you'll have some delicious, rich coffee waiting for you. Another advantage of a french press is the flexibility-you can adjust the temperature of the water as well as the concentration of the coffee (by adjusting the amount of coffee grounds), so you can brew the coffee the way you want.
As for this particular press, it's my favorite because of it's excellent design. The glass carafe is well protected with a plastic grip-this makes it a lot stronger and makes the press a bit more durable. My last french press cracked, and I'm still not sure how that happened. It also has an elegant look to it. This press is also designed so that no plastic touches the hot water when you're brewing the coffee, so that's always a plus. It also comes with a spoon for measuring out coffee grounds.
Functionally, it works perfectly. I didn't get any grounds in my coffee, and the coffee itself tasted delicious. Just make sure you don't press down too fast, or the water might come out and burn your hands.
All in all, I love this french press! It's my favorite out of the 3 that I have tried, and though you're paying a bit more than some of the other presses, I think the increased durability is totally worth it.

UPDATE 12/26: Just wanted to update this review a bit. I've used this for ~3 months now and it still works great. It's durable, and as long as you wash it, the filter still works fine. Those who are looking for replacement filters can find them here: Coffee French Press Replacement Screen Parts (2Pack) Best Universal 8-Cup Stainless Steel Reusable Filter Accessories. They're made by the same company and I can attest that they work just fine with this coffee press.
-Please note that I was given a review unit.
My husband drinks decaf and I drink fully leaded, so it's nice to have my own little system--especially since I don't always want coffee. It's great for loose leaf tea. I wrap a terry kitchen towel around it to keep it hot while the tea is steeping and that works perfectly.
