Summary: Every morning I get my Jamaica Blue Mountain coffee beans from my freezer, grind them and make a well needed cup of coffee. However, now and then my wife's has her girlfriends come over and they seem to prefer press-filter coffee. This coffee maker will make you up to 8 (regular) cups and about 4 mugs of coffee. The glass is heat resistant however the handle will get warm if the water is too hot. My wife loves it.
