Excerpt: I am a big fan of Bodum products. The travel press was given to me as a gift and I am for the most part very pleased with it. I had an acrylic model previously but dropped it and the acrylic cracked causing a leak in the thermal wall so this metal version is just right for me. And the price was the same. The only criticism I have is that the hinged pouring cap, while effective in the closed position, is not so effective in the open position.
Excerpt: This product is ok but have problem with the filter. It let the coffee sediments pass by the side where it touches the wall of jar. I had filter of perfect fit diameter from broken glass french press, so replaced it with that now it works fine. May be the filter will work fine with tea and coarse coffee ground coffee, but not sure. I use regular ground coffee from store. Along with replaced filter and additional paper filter I get clean cup of coffee.
Excerpt: My boss introduced me to this travel coffee press. (Horrible coffee at the office.) I love this press and has already saved me more than the money I spent on it because I have not had to go out for coffee or lattes since I got it. Sturdy design, I've already dropped it a few times and no leaking.
Summary: this is great if you like fresh ground coffee instead of instant stuff all the time, I take it to work with me all the time, only negitive is it does not keep the coffee warm for as long as i would like but keeps it warmer than a standard french press.
