Produces great taste and ease of use. It keeps your coffee really really hot for a long time, to the point where you have to leave it open a while before putting the top on or you won’t be able to drink it any time soon. I would say the only downside is that it has a silicone/plastic top that has little airflow holes on one side that can never be covered. Though they are very small and the lid very snug otherwise, it might leak through those holes if not kept up right. This cup is meant to use in the car, while walking, etc. Without having to worry about keeping it super level. You just can’t throw it in your bag until ready to drink from later.
This is the second one i purchased from bobble and i love it. Instructions were not included in my first purchase. Just remember to take the rubber gasket off and remove the screen periodically. I did not know it came apart and coffee grounds build up under the gasket and the press got stuck. The press is very easy to take apart and go back together. I will keep buying this press by bobble as i need to buy a knew one.
The coffeemaker in our guard shack at work unfortunately died a few weeks ago. I didn’t want to spend a huge amount of money on a, a new coffeemaker or b, an expensive on the go coffee press with too many bells and whistles that i’ll never need. So i went with presse and i have to say i’m impressed.It’s simple to use and easy to clean, and it brews excellent coffee. I went with the red colored one because it has a fill line on the inside. As for people complaining about the “silicone” smell from the cap. I found it isn’t that bad at all. I only use the cap when i push the plunger down anyway, so it’s not a problem. After a few washes, the smell went away anyhow.
I gave this as a gift to my girlfriend, who is not shy about things she does and does not like. After about a week of using it during the busy season at work, she told me that her little coffee making cup has been amazing. She has hot water on tap at work, so the process is very easy for her. She had often complained that the keurig at work makes weak coffee; this presse, however, steeps for a sufficient amount of time to make strong bold flavored coffee. The mesh keeps the grounds separate from the coffee once it’s done brewing, well enough she says that an hour later the coffee still tastes great, not tannic or acrid, as will happen with over-brewing.

First let me start off by saying this product does not smell bad. People are exaggerating that the odor of the cover smells of strong plastic. It does have a “rubber” odor but very faint: it smells like a toned down “fresh car scent”. Second this portable coffee maker is fantastic. I was worried that coffee grinds bought at the store would not filter correctly. They do, maybe leave a little sediment at the bottom of the cup (if you use a coffee cup and not the presse). I’m not on the go, so i don’t drink out of the presse, i pour it into a coffee cup. But because the presse makes more than 1 cup of coffee, there is about half a cup left over. The presse keeps that coffee nice a warm – when i finish the remainder that is left in the presse.
Cup piece stuck inside after very first use 🙁 tried everything i can think of to remove with no luck. Edit: after doing a little research i l earned that my cup became stuck inside because i ground my beans too fine. Used a few times since then and am happy to report that works just as advertised. I am extremely impressed with how long it keeps the coffee warm for, easily drinkable 2 hours after brewing. Cleaning and dis-assembly doesn’t take longer than 3 minutes. My only gripe is that the lid is not spill proof, otherwise fantastic product.
Update:after using this thing for a few weeks now i realize this might be the baddest coffee press i’ve ever used. Extremely well built using great materials. You would have to go out of your way to damage it. First, the silicone smell of the o-ring goes away after about two weeks, until then its pretty strong. Secondly, i find i always have to pour the coffee into another cup to drink right away. It stayed way hot in the presse since it has 3 walls of insulation. I don’t know how this company is making money selling these for $20 bucks. I have found for me personally, is after you give a stir to to the grounds is to put the inner assembly on with lid but not push down to keep in the heat. It produces spectacular pressed coffee. The unit is very durable as well.
I have been watching the evolution of this press since it’s kickstarter days and decided to take the plunge now that bobble bought the design. Its a great design but the lid smells so bad of silicon or plastic or whatever it is made of it ruins the coffee experience. I have soaked it, scrubbed it, and left it out to air to no avail. The odor is so foul that i end up taking off the lid which defeats the purpose of a travel press. I can’t take it in the car or whatever so it may go back to amazon as it just sits in the cabinet anyway. Update: their customer service is top notch. I was ready to send this back but decided to contact bobble’s rep from the response below and they are sending me another lid they say doesn’t smell at all. I’m impressed and can’t wait to enjoy french press on the go. Update 2: got a new lid very quickly and it doesn’t smell.
This is a good alternative to k-cups. I like the convenience of k-cups but the expense and waste is a worry. I like my french press, but too often the coffee was cold even before it was ready to drink. Having the option of using loose ground coffee or tea kept hot for a while without anything electrical is convenient. The coffee (and tea) tastes good. I leave space for adding milk into the cup and it is warm goodness. My only complaint is that despite several washings, there is a funny odor to the silicone parts. Because it was made in china, (“designed in the us, made in china”) i worry about the chemicals that might have been used in its manufacturing process. Bobble water bottles are noted free of many of the chemicals, but i didn’t find that on this product. My presse is brand new to me, so perhaps the odor (chemicals) will be washed away in time.
Originally i bought this for camping/offroading adventures but as it is now i’m using it around the house rather then my pod brewer. It works wonderfully and leaves only a slight amount of coffee powder behind when straining. The construction of the cup keeps boiled water hot for a insane amount of time. It works so well that if i don’t add a bit of cold water, i would have to wait a pretty long time just to have a drink. This also means that once its at a good temp that it will pretty much stay there till its gone. I’ve mainly used it for coffee so far but it also works perfectly with loose leaf tea. The only negative thing i can say about it is the lid feels like a cheap after-thought. Its functional but its definitely the weak point. Not so bad that i would take off a star though. Its truly a great product and well worth the money.
This thing is perfect for what i needed. I have 2 espro french presses and they server me well but one is too small and the other is very large. I have been looking for a press that was easy to use and the right size. There is a rubbery smell from the rubber top and it that would be the only downfall of this product. If they were to switch to solid plastic top it would be easily a five star product.
I was given this mug as a gift and i use it daily. It’s the best thing since sliced bread. It’s easy to use, cleans up in a second, insulated and makes a great cup of coffee (actually 2 cups). I recently returned from an extended stay in guatemala. My three favorites things i had while there were my hiking boots and this press. Every morning fresh brewed guatemalan coffee. Buy this for yourself, and as gifts. Yours friends will love you forever no matter what you do to them in the future :).
I bought this to go with my manual frother-and for about $35, i have pretty much replicated a $150+ coffee machinelike the simplicity of this product and it saves me time in the morning (vs my pour over method) and stays piping hot for hours. Only drawback is the lip of the stainless cup is a little sharp for drinking from, so i do end up sipping from the silicone lid, which i would otherwise prefer not to do.
I have a couple of high dollar $$$ espresso machines and $$$ coffee grinder also have a aeropress, french press freiling, and do a lot of cold brewingi use a pound of great fresh roasted beans a weekok the impress coffee thermos is a excellent tool i made 13 ounces of coffee it was smooth tasting not bitter or sour tasting at all the impress was a little bolder taste than the aeropress but overall the impress is very similar to the aeropress in taste tomorrow i will use a paper filter in the impress and press two cups one with a paper filter and one with only the metal filter it comes with to see if there is any difference.
a great all in one press and cup for amazing coffee.
I love this cupthis travel cup is absolutely amazing. I searched for a few cups of this type and after reading reviews i ordered this cup. I will say it is the absolute best decision i could have made. I am always on the go, and i was spending entirely too much money on coffee. This solved my problems because i am guaranteed a great cup of hot coffee anytime, anywhere. I really like this design because if i wanted to add cream and sugar i can simply take the top off and put it back on; however, the coffee is so good that i typically don’t have to add anything. The other designs that i saw did not allow for the hassle free addition of cream and sugar. I typically drink my coffee from a straw so that it doesn’t stain my teeth so i am not really sure how great the top is at being leak proof. I will say that the cup is well insulated.
The gamilia impress coffee brewer is currently my workhorse for my daily cup of jo and i can’t be happier. Coffee that made like 12 cups of coffee. I was quite happy with that but we always ended up with extra coffee and it was a hassle with the filters and cleaning it. We then moved to a keurig and that was just not quite hitting the spot as in terms of taste but it was quite convenient with those silly k cups. We even upgraded to the keurig vue then keurig 2. Quite convenient but taste wise it wasn’t there. I went back online and did research upon research. (duh) but also wanted something to make good coffee. I was about to pull the trigger on the aeropress coffee but came across this which looks sooooooo much better. Also it was portable and easy to clean. Oh and did i say it’s got a nice quality finish on the inside as well as a pleasing look on the outside. And the great thing is that the filter uses science to make sure that no grounds go into your coffee. Put in grounds ( i use fresh coffee just grinded btw)step2. Add hot water to desire amountstep3. Wait a few minutes for it to percolate.
It is so easy and convienent. Makes delicious coffee quickly. I cannot say enough good things about this product. The vessel itself keeps the coffee super hot. I typically transfer to a different cup or mug so that it cools more quickly. The quality seems to be top notch. I’ve been using it daily for about a month now and there is no issue.
Timed around 3 several hours – with lid on – (down below)joyful to have decided on this bobble french press. (been not happy with other folks i have attempted)this cup has a abundant / quality look – construction – design – & is incredibly sturdy / tough. >>>while i wish there was a french press go cup developed that the filter would press completelyagainst the coffee grounds to squish out maximum richness and goodness, i’ve not located one yet. >>>but this cup is the upcoming very best detail in that it’s reverse circulation filter will allow liquidback through it, leaving only a incredibly compact quantity (1 tablespoon) held among the grinds. (if you maintain sipping – sooner or later it’ll drain out also)>>>i’m guessing the lack of ability to squish the grounds is why guidance sayadd four tablespoons in 12 – 13 oz of water. (filter is helpful for measuring)(much better then rule of thumb advised when brewed by other suggests = 2 tablespoons for every eight oz h2o)fully stainless steel (foodstuff-quality 304), with a significant-temperature (food-quality) silicone lid. Lid is supple and simple on / off, but has a reasonably robust disagreeable scent at to start with, but absent by 3rd-4th use. Cup has rubber (silicone ?) foot that’s an fantastic non-slip characteristic. Three pieces – best-rack dishwasher safecup outside the house measurements – 3 one/4′ w – 5 one/4′ t>>>initial 185 levels (boiling) = un-drinkable for 1 1/two hr – then incredibly very hot, can hardly sip. >>>2 hr = 145 levels – are unable to consume but larger sips>>>2 1/2 hr = one hundred forty levels – nevertheless hot – go slow>>>3 hr = 134 degrees – pretty heat – great for consuming it down.
Warning: it is critical not to attempt and force the plunger down if and when you come upon more than slight resistance. Just check out to pull it back again out a small, and retry. The silicone seal can ride up one side of the plunger and develop into significantly stuck/jammed all or part way down if you try to force it. A plunger jam is a huge nuisance. It happened to me 2 times, in advance of i figured out what was taking place. (i at first imagined this was a dilemma with my selection of grind. ) i dumped the liquid, and crammed the plunger with ice and permit it sit. Later on i was able to brace the lip of the plunger on a desk edge, and gradually pressure the plunger again out a tiny at a time, whilst rotating the entire body. It took really a bit of muscle mass to get it carried out. An net research will clearly show that this challenge is fairly frequent, and men and women have suggested a couple of various methods, but the ice trick was the only one that finally labored.
I use this mini french press every single working day at get the job done. I do like k-cups but there’s some thing to be mentioned for earning coffee with contemporary grounds in a french press. Some have claimed that they experienced troubles with the press obtaining trapped but i have not experienced that knowledge. I place in the grounds, insert some incredibly hot water from our water cooler or a nearby keurig and enable the grounds soak for about 3-4 minutes. I select four minutes if the drinking water is not incredibly sizzling. Then i just insert the press and push down and all that’s left is coffee. I have under no circumstances experienced an issue with coffee grounds having through the filter which is practically nothing limited of remarkable for this small point.
It works well, it sits somehwere between a french press and aero press. The item itself feels sturdy and the micro filter does its job. I see where people dont like the lid as it does smell strongly. I personally dont even bother with the lid. I wish they would correct that issue and provide a ‘sturdier’ lid.
