Summary: This is an awesome way to enjoy coffee! The flavor from a French press coffee maker seems richer than percolated coffee. If you have the time (enough time to bring water to near boiling and brew for about 5 minutes) it is well worth it to enjoy a good cup of coffee or latte. The Bodum French press is a high quality product. I originally bought the Bodum because the area where I live experiences many power outages.
Bodum Shin Bistro 10600-16 8 Cups French Press is excellent.

Summary: Bodum Shin Bistro 10600-16 8 Cups French Press is excellent. The coffee can be made in 6 minutes. I nuke my water. While water is heating, I add the amount of coarse coffee, to the glass unit. Pour water into the glass unit, stir and wait 2-3 minutes. Enjoy your coffee, with less acid taste. I'd recommend this to everybody. It is easy to clean. After I have my 2 mugs of hot coffee, I add 8 oz. of cold water to the glass unit.
Summary: Amazing french press! I use traditional 8-10 oz. cups when drinking coffee, so this press makes a single cup for me. I have been using these presses for years, and have never broken the glass on one. You have to be gentle when handling and cleaning and they will last for years. Great quality.
Summary: This is the best thing since the Tumbler (hmmm..). Anyway, dont drop it. It is glass, and Hurray for that. These should be more popular, after all, you get more out of your coffee/money by not filtering the good stuff. If you dont like it strong then, just use less coffee. It works best both ways. I wish there were ten stars.
Pros: Dishwasher Safe, Easy To Use, Looks Darn Good, Rinses Clean
Summary: If you're looking for a perfect cup of coffee, this little French Press delivers. The coffee is so much richer and deeper in flavor than with an automatic coffee maker. My introduction to coffee brewed in a Bodum French Press took place in a quaint little restaurant in New Orleans' French Quarter; I was hooked!
Pros: Easy To Use, Improves Taste, Perfect cup of coffee
Summary: This product works well and makes very good coffee. It looks to be made of quality materials. My one disappointment was in the volume. It is advertised as a 3-cup press. Be prepared for some very small cups of coffee for you and your two friends. It would be more accurate to call this a one-mug press.
