    Coffee Press

    We enjoyed using a Coffee Press for the first time on a trip in London. We are in the USA and would like to purchase a Press. Which are the best Presses? What are the best features or construction of the press we should look for? Thanks in Austin, Texas

    Hello VivianK

    Welcome to the Coffee Forums!

    When you say that you're looking for a coffee press, I'm assuming that you're referring to a French Press?

    Take a look at this one and see if it's similar to what you experienced in London:
    Bodum Chambord Coffee Press: Kitchen & Dining: Amazon.com

    You may want to scroll further down the page and read some of the description and comments too.

    yes, bodum coffee press is a very good coffee press device. but it actually depends on you how you want the final result when choosing presses.

    I really never thought about difference between one french press to another. I own 3 Bodum french press in two different size. And recently I actually had coffee that was prepared by french press sold at Ikea. I thought it did its job at about the 1/3 of the cost.

    Espro Press is the best one around, nifty unique features and fixes normal french press faults, however its pricey vs other press devices from other companies. But damn is it good.

    For the money though hard to top the Aeropress.

    Ditto with Surfer. Espro is the best, hands down. And you get what you pay for.

    I have a Bodum but I dislike cleaning it so I seldom use it.

    Hello Polytan;
    It may be 60 pounds but if you buy one or 2 coffees a day and do those at home instead it wo't take long to pay for itself.

    yeh i hate to say it as it comes off snobby, but the Espro is just worlds better then any low end/cheap french press, imo if your going to buy a press you only have two options, Aeropress or the Espro is you like french... anything in between just doesn't compare to those two.
