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!
Most of the Presses, my old Bodum, and the Grosche Zurich all have the handle mounted by a metal ring that fits around the container. I bought a few of Grosche Zurich as gifts but I thought I'd upgrade to this slick GROSCHE LISBON , which was stunning due to the glass handle being affixed directly to the container. Unfortunately from day one there was a hairline crack right at that point where the glass handle met the container and the press would leak. I finally returned it.
My perfect pot. Start with freshly roasted beans btw 3-10 days after roasting.
Either filter tap or spring water.
Temp just below boiling. ~200 f
I heaping tablespoon/ 4oz of water.
Grind right before pouring.
Pour over the grinds fully saturating the grinds
Use a plastic spoon or something not metal stir 3 or 4 times. Place the plunger. Time to 4 mins.
Press slow and steady
The french press is great, very minimalist, with no bells and whistles, but it does the job its designed to do quite well.
It fits up to 1L of liquid, which is quite a large amount if you are only making coffee or tea for yourself. Once you are done with it, its super easy to clean, just rinse everything off in the sink, and you are good to go.
the filter works great, just remember that most french presses are designed to use "coarsely ground" coffee, so if you use normally ground coffee from bags, then you will get a small amount of the grounds making it through the filter.
Remember that the press is made of glass, and even though its not super thin, you still want to be pretty careful with it so it wont break, which means, dont be banging the thing on the side of the sink to drain it.
if you arent looking to spend a fortune on a super deluxe french press with tons of bells and whistles, and are just looking for something that does the job well, look no further. a great investment of $15 for anyone that likes coffee from grounds or loose leaf tea.
