I was going to buy another press but saw the price and good reviews on this and decided to give it a try. Grosche Zurich is a simple, no frills coffee press. You put the ground coffee into the carafe, fill with almost boiling water, stir, let stand for few minutes, then separate the grounds from the brew with the plunger/filter assembly. The metal plunger/filter assembly works smoothly keeping all grounds at the bottom of carafe. The volume is enough for two people using mugs. Although the carafe handle is secured only at one point with the band, it seems secure enough for long life. All said, a good buy for about half the price of other brands.

5 Stars for quick delivery by vendor and competitive price under $10. The glass replacement itself would be over the selling price of this item! I find that this press is perfect for making tea leaf brew though perhaps not so much for ground coffee. The mesh does not hug around the inside of the press as seal-tight as a Bodum does. But for the price I can upgrade the mesh with a Bodum part for under $5 on Amazon and the total price will still be under a Bodum 8-cup press. The bottom of the glass does not have any base or border so you have to be careful in handling or placing it on a hard surface. Happy purchase on Amazon.

I got this item and from some of the reviews I expected this flimsy little thing.... when it arrived the first couple times that I used it I treated it like fine china as I did not want to break it with a tap, then the unthinkable happened... I tapped it accidently against the sink while rinsing.... nothing.... then again I accidentally dropped it in the sink while cleaning it, (this may be dumb luck as I have yet to duplicate), and still nothing.... I have since quit handling this thing so gingerly and treat it like another dish, although I do not let it sit in the sink with the dirty dishes, so I have no idea of "Crushability" but I am treating this thing like a normal dish and have yet to have a single crack.

The handle does feel a little weak as it is not attached at the bottom but I carry it full from my water heater/cooler to my room/office everyday and have yet to feel the urge to grab the bottom, post fear time mentioned above, lol.... It seem to be good, not super strong but it is safe and functional thus far.

I have been using regular ground Folgers and get some minimal grounds but when I use whole bean and my grinder, set to course, I get no grounds but a nice clean cup of coffee.

All in all.... for the price, I would recommend this to anyone as it is a great little product. Buy with confidence, this is a great product! :)

**Addition @ 5months**
Still using every day and it is still going strong..... not a single problem, no cracks, no breaks, no anything! I would recommend this product to ANYONE... I do not know where any bad reviews could come from as this is a great product, been using it everyday, several times a day for the last 5 months. :)

This french press is a good value for the price. It is really light weight, but the screen strainer never lets any grounds through and it plunges just fine...

I purchased the Grosche "Zurich" French press to replace a well-known competitor's that had lasted four years to the day. The competitor's model has gone up $8.00 in price during those four years, so I did quite a bit of searching and found the Grosche for half the price of the competitor's replacement. I've now been using it daily for over a month, and in most respects it is the equal or superior to the one I had before. And even if it only lasts two years it will be a better value.

The only drawback I've found so far is that the top overhangs the carafe, so with its smallish spout if you attempt to pour too fast coffee dribbles down the side. A little patience solves this problem, but I'm not patient by nature.

17 MAY 2014 UPDATE: After a few days I discovered a simple solution to the dribbling problem: by just using my thumb to pull back on the lid (in a motion similar to using one of those syrup dispensers they have at most pancake restaurants) it enlarges the area above the spout enough to prevent dribbling. The handle is perfectly positioned to facilitate this, so it's already become a habit and no more dribbles!

I was in need of a cheap solution to a late afternoon coffee fix once the group coffee pot in the office had been turned off for the day.

This press has done the trick perfectly! I've been able to brew a single cup for myself or up to three (decently sized) cups for myself and my friends. Just throw in some boiling water, a few heaping tablespoons of grounds (I had to experiment to find the right amount for each person's preferences), and press down about 2-3 minutes later.

The press cleans up relatively easily, though the glass definitely shows water stains. The only reason for the 1 star loss is the filter - it has almost separated from the plunger on me a time or two, usually because a few grounds have made their way in between it and the plunger and gotten stuck. This was remedied fairly easily with some vigorous rinsing, but can still be annoying (those brews tend to have a few grounds in them at the end).

The wonderful thing about presses in general, as opposed to standard coffee filters, is that the oils from the beans, which give coffee a smooth, rich taste, are not caught in the paper filter and discarded. I find I'm able to brew and enjoy both extremely strong coffee for big caffeine boosts, and much lighter brews for flavor and still be satisfied with the outcome, regardless.
