bought this last time $25... been using the french press.. it works fine, but i dont like the plastic part of the press being touch with hot coffee... and the travel mug is so terrible... top is wider than bottom so when u fill 90% cup will cause all the coffee grains go to top... and bad coffee... i have to redo it to filter them out but have to be more careful
after i typed this realized others had same experience . lol in general these 2 for $25 is not really a deal since travel cup sucks... i didnt break my glass press yet , and my apartment dam cold... but they seem to work just fine, just the handle kindda flimsy
I have this bodum press and I love it. Coffee never tasted better until I started using french press. This is kind of a cheap one, but it will last long time as long as you take care of it. Good deal too
The Starbucks CEO uses a Bodum French Press. That's what I bought too. Works well. I even had a bag of finely ground coffee that I used and even that worked.
Coarse is what you want for FP.
keep in mine you DO NOT want to use boiling water with a french press or aeropress.
besides the taste, that will also help with the glass breaking that people experience.
Not sure why Bodum breaks but other companies like Hario make sturdy glass that's made to go through temperature changes. I know some people don't trust Yama siphons compared to Hario when using a cold towel to draw coffee down.
By the way, I know that one is supposed to use coarse-ground coffee. My point was it worked even on finely ground coffee which I actually liked a little better. (A bit more like Turkish coffee...puts hair on your tongue.)
Also I just microwave the water in the container. So there's no rapid temp change to worry about breaking it.
