Great French Press! This is my second one as I broke the glass by accident when washing the first one. I selected the same brand as before as others did not work well with bad filtering systems. I wish they had a replacement glass and different colors for variety. I think they make them but not available for sale. Highly recommend it if you drink tea as much and as often as I do!
I got this to test the waters with french press. Now it's the only coffee I like. I drink death wish straight and it tastes wonderful. I did upgrade to a larger size shortly after getting my process for making my coffee the way I like though. I went to the 32 oz. the 32 oz gives me around 2 full cups with some room to add a little bit of cool water so I can drink it straight away.
I love French Press Coffee! Finally, after many years of trying to drink coffee, I finally found a way to drink it and really enjoy it. This pot always make a good cup of coffee if you use the best organic fresh roasted coffee. My favorite is Jo Expresso, a medium dark roast organic whole bean Jo Coffee from Specialty Java, Inc. I am almost 77 years old and have never like coffee of any form or fashion. I occasionally tried to drink it, but could not stand it. After reading a review of French Press Coffee, I decided to try again. This time, I liked it. French Press is the key, but the right coffee beans are just as important. Tried another brand of coffee which was fresh roasted, whole bean medium dark blend, organic, etc., but it was bitter--not good at all to me. I drink my coffee black.so I must have GOOD coffee beans. I also have the Bodum Brazil 3 cup French Press Coffee Pot. What a wonderful way to be sure that you can always have a cup of French pressed coffee wherever you are! It is small enough to travel anywhere. Love my Bodum Brazil pots!
So I waited quite a while to leave a review due to the bad reviews about this breaking. The glass is just as thick as any other French press I've ever owned, and as long as you aren't abrasive you will be good. Dont knock it on the side of the trash bin or aggressively scrape out grinds/leaves - gently scoop it all out with a plastic/bamboo/silicone utensil. Anyways - works great, cleans well, pours evenly. Love it!
We had one just like this since they were introduced into the market over 10 years ago. WE loved it until I carelessly had it too close to the stove and melted the handle in two pieces. It lasted us so many years which is rare nowadays! We loved it so much we looked for an exact replacement and here it was! WE received it and are back to our beloved pressed coffee!
