The French Press style of coffee-maker is tried and true. It's my favorite way to brew a burly cuppa dark roast. The carafe of this one is strong and solid - and really beautiful to look at. The quality is in keeping with the Brod & Taylor name (and the $50 price-tag).I keep it out on an open shelf when not in use. I like the black finish and the wood handle.
Why only four stars? I thought the filter assembly seemed cheap and insubstantial compared to that of my fragile glass Bodum. Fortunately, I was able to swap parts between the two presses and upgrade the Brod & Taylor.
A modern upgrade. The tried-and-true french press now built for an even better brew.
Enhanced filtration. Two stainless steel woven filters are stacked to prevent any sediment and provide a clean and complex flavor.
Built for perfection. Double-wall construction maintains consistent temperature and keeps your brew hot so your coffee and tea lasts longer than ever.
