The French press coffee maker is the simplest of all brewing systems, where coarsely ground beans meet hot water right off the boil. The right temperature (92–96 °C, 195–205 °F) brings the optimal extraction power for the essential oils in the beans to develop their full flavor profile in just four minutes. An easy press on the plunger locks the grinds at the bottom of the glass carafe and stops the brewing process.

How to brew French press coffee:
For each 4-ounce cup, put 1 rounded tablespoon or 1 Bodum scoop of coarse-ground coffee into the pot.
Pour hot (not boiling) water into the pot. Leave a minimum of 1 inch of space at the top. Stir with a plastic spoon.
Place the plunger unit on top of the pot. Turn lid to close off the pour spout opening. Do not press down. Let the coffee brew for 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes press down the plunger and enjoy.

Esta version es barato por ser hecho de plastico la tapa y la base, la parte interior de la malla es hecho de la misma material que la verision costosa. Por eso cumple igul que la otra a medio del precio. Esta la usamos para el cafe y es perfecto porque el plastico es facil limpiar y no decha machas de agua como la version de acero inox.
Para cafe enjuaga despues de uso para uso de te suelto desarma el filtro y un poco y lavar lo para soltar las ojas de te que se atrapan.
Deverdad no hay manera mas facil y que deja mas aroma en el te o cafe que una prensa francesa, los filtros de papel para cafe colado saquen los aceites naturales del cafe y no dejan que luce todo el sabor.
*a little milk frother is a good idea too.
My problem was that I like coffee but I don't drink more than a cup or two in the a.m. This thing turns out to be the answer.
It does take a little effort, but I've found myself enjoying this little morning ritual, like there is a tangible barrier between my morning and the start of the day.
Some things to consider:
-It does take roughly 8mins to actually have your cup in hand, including clean up maybe 12mins total.
-You'll need a timer (your phone'll do) and a Hand Grinder (if you're willing to put in this much effort then just put in the extra 2mins to grind whole beans)
-I would suggest a Milk Frother (they're ~20 for a handheld one) and a Food Scale (for consistency, volume vs. mass, science and all that)
-if you do buy this then put your thumb over the lid when pouring, the plastic expands at a different rate than the glass and it can get slippy when tilted. Doubley so if water actually gets in between the glass and plastic.
If your curious here's what I do to get two standard sized mugs of joe, with steamed/frothed milk.
1. Grind coffee
2. Brew coffee for ~4mins
3. While brewing, froth milk in microwave.
4. Pour coffee in cup and pour the remainder into a separate container.
Expanded (for just two cups)
(W/food scale, measuring cup & handheld milk frother)
(I set everything up by the microwave to make things easy)
1. Grind coffee, 1ounce (on food scale) for me. Pre-heat the French Press & mug.
2. Measure out ~15 fl. ounces of hot water. And some 3% milk in a microwaveable cup (I'd say over 1/3 of the mug you intend to fill.)
3. Start the timer and pour some hot water in the press, enough to soak the grinds and have them float a little, after 30 seconds pour in the rest.
4. At ~2:30 microwave the milk for 51secs, removing every 16secs to quickly stir with Frother, enough to get it a little foamy.
At the end the milk should be warm and have little bubbles in it, it shouldn't be too foamy yet.
5. The Press should be ready, pour the coffee into the measuring cup and then half of that into the mug. Make sure the milk is still a little foamy and pour most of it in. Froth up the remaining milk until it is really really frothy. Dispense.
6. You can add ground spices (nutmeg, cinnamon & pumpkin come to mind) on top of the foam for a nice aromatic effect.
7. Enjoy (I've found that good coffee doesn't need sugar)
7.5 *make small changes if needed. This is supposed to be 'your' perfect cup after all.
The plastic housing feels too thin/light duty for the application. It hasn't broken yet, but I suspect it will soon. The bottom of the housing that holds the glass canister flexes/bends quite a bit during each press. As other reviewers have stated, it doesn't hold the glass canister firmly at all. When pouring, mine will slide 2/3 of the way out if I don't hold it in place. It's certainly manageable, just be aware of it.
I'm using this with a basic Delonghi burr grinder and Costco house blend beans, and it makes great coffee.
Before getting this product, I also tried an Aeropress and a percolator, which were not as good.
I've had it a good couple of weeks and it's holding up okay.
