If you like it strong


French presses are not for the light casual coffee drinker. This makes some serious coffee that can be very strong. You can adjust the amount of grounds you use to make it a little bit lighter but the whole point of a french press is to have a cup of...

in a press


My husband and I purchased this after the glass of our old french press shattered. What drew us to this product was one major feature: replaceable glass. With our old french press model, that was not an option. Now that it has some miles on it there...

Quick and easy cup of coffee

Get all the essential oils


The bodum french press is about the best around. It allows me to receive piping hot coffeee with all the essential oils. I use it every day and it has held up well. The only bad thing is that it is made of glass so it can sometimes break. By not using...
