The ideal French press should produce an exceptional coffee flavor and be easy to use. To help you make a more informed buying decision, we tested different French presses in a variety of sizes and materials side by side in our Lab. Our testers assessed each one by brewing multiple batches of coffee and performing taste tests. They also tested their insulation by measuring how hot the coffee was after 10 and 30 minutes. Each French press was rated on its design, brew quality, and ease of use. Furthermore, we sent several French presses to our experienced at-home testers so they could spend weeks using them and give additional insights into their design and durability. Here are the best French presses you can buy.
