French Press Review

I received a Mr. Coffee French Press as a birthday gift from my sister several months ago and I have enjoyed it so much that I wanted to write a product review style post about the press. :)

The Mr. Coffee French Press comes in a box like this.

The componets to this french press include a 1 quart glass carafe, a metel and plastic frame with a handle, and a mesh plunger attached to the lid.

The instructions are very simple and easy to understand.

Step 1.
Bring water to a boil on stove.

Step 2.
Measure coffee grounds or tea leaves into the carafe.

Step 3.
Pour boiling water in and position the lid/plunger on top.

Step 4.
With even pressure push plunger all the way down. For tea allow the leaves to steep 3 to 5 minutes before plunging.

Now you can enjoy fresh coffee or tea with minimal effort and less counterspace being taken up by an appliance!

I really enjoy making loose leaf teas with my French Press and Mr. In The Mid-west really likes to make coffee with it.
In fact, he is thinking about buying one that he can keep at work so that he can make fresh coffee while on break.

The parts are easy to wash and it doesn't take a lot of space to store.
We really like our French Press and use it daily. A big, "Thank you!" to my sister for this gift!

Thanks so much for sharing this review with Roses of Inspiration. I have often thought about getting a French press and after reading this I am wondering why I haven't! :)

Enjoy your afternoon!

This sounds like a nice gift that your sister gave you! Is that a pot holder from Grandma in one of the pictures? We use ours a lot that she gave us. :) They are so thick and nice to use.

Sunshine Country,
Yes, that is a pot holder that Grandma made! She gave a couple as a gift at the bridal shower before we were married. :)

What a special sister and a nice gift, I think I will look into one seeing that I use individual coffee cups and they are expensive. Thank you for sharing. Love you all - especially little love bug! MK

We recently traded in our Keurig for a French press, too. Easy to use and clean up, and no worry about the chemicals in the plastic cups.
