This is a fantastic french press. I have a smaller one that works just fine but this one is definitely good for when you have company or want to make extra coffee to keep in the fridge. The mesh really keeps the smaller grounds from making their way into your cup. And an added bonus is i got it for 4 dollars with a special promo code.
Make excellent tasting coffee. Better than keurig or hamilton single cup maker. Should have a more solid or sturdy base since it is made of glass and is tall and skinny. I improvised and made a nice square wood base for it.
My previous press broke in dishwasher so glad to see thicker glass in this one. Stainless steel top and holder also spiffy.
Good design,i like durable materia.
Arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I’ve bought other french press coffee maker before but enjoys the volume of this product.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Makes great coffee
- revised I think this problem could be corrected by fixing the straining portion with the pole in a better manner.
- takes time and effort
Gave this as a gift and the recipient was very happy thanks.
I received a promo code for this product. I found it to be very sturdy of good quality and works fantastic.
I would definitely recommend it.
He uses it for coffee and tea. It really does allow for better flavored beverage without any grounds floating.
Wanted a new way to make coffee and am extremely happy with this. Coffee taste much better when you make it yourself.
I had the same problem as the other negative review. After two days of use about 4 pots of coffee the plunger is doing in sideways and will not strain the grounds. Did not use it with any excessive force or misuse. I think this problem could be corrected by fixing the straining portion with the pole in a better manner. Revised-after i wrote this review i got an email asking about the issue. They replaced it and it is now working fine. I have to say the press works great as long as the plunger stays affixed. I raised the review as the company was very responsive and addressed the issue in a very timely manner.
Easy to make coffee, but my coffee maker handle was broken, i don’t like it.
I received this product in exchange for my honest review. The opinions expressed here are 100% my own. I feel so classy having this french press. I am still getting the hang of using it but i am so happy i got one to add to my kitchen gadget collection.
I love coffee and can be pretty particular about brewing methods & appliances. I wanted to buy a new french press that was pretty and functioned well. Gorgeous hardware, perfect size, and great customer service.
The top the the draw shaft for pressing down popped right off i think its cheapo made that way other than that it worked great.
This is perfect when you don’t have power available and the coffee has a great flavor.
Read the instructions and follow them. It won’t make its excellent brew if you just grind pour and plunge. If you are just getting up and want a cuppa use your drip coffee maker. If you want to take the time and carefully brew french press coffee it will be worth your money. A smaller one for brewing loose tea.
Prefer bodum over this make, was disappointed with the cheap construction. Couple things to note: glass is thin and the nut on the bottom of the press comes apart, which makes it tricky when you clean. You can easily loose the nut down the drain.
Good product but the lid/press part of mine is kinda wobbly and if i’m not careful it’s not going to go down evenly.
I’ve used it for a week now. The screen is nice and tight, so it doesn’t allow grounds to get through, it seems to be well made and it does exactly what it’s supposed to do: brew a good cup of coffee.
