Will you make coffee with French Press at home? Which French Press are you using?
Hi, new to this forum.
Here I just want to share my thoughts with you. I like homemade French Press coffee. I enjoy drinking coffee at home while watching TV or listening music. I now am using Ecooe Stainless Steel French Press, which is a new brand but provides high quality French Press.
How about you?

Welcome to the forum!
I used the common Bodum glass press for years, and was completely satisfied with it. Several years ago, in anticipation of an Alaska trip that would include weeks on the road and some camping, I bought a Frieling insulated stainless steel press for its ruggedness. By the time I had used it a few times, I much preferred it to the glass press. Both my wife and I thought it made better coffee. I cannot say for sure whether that was just in our heads or, possibly, the more stable temperature and hotter resulting brew really made a difference.

I started French pressing at home a few months ago and now I only drink my coffee that way. I had a press I bought several years ago from a Starbucks and only started using it this year. So I don't know the brand of it as it is stamped on the metal holder "Starbucks". I have a cheaper one (actually, 4 that I bought from Amazon that had super high number of reviews with high rating) that I have at work (I'm a retailer). I prefer my starbucks one at home. Not sure why, though they are very comparable.

Not a French press but ....
I use a Bonavita Ceramic Immersion Dripper.
Wide Base Porcelain Immersion Dripper | Bonavita World
It allows the coffee to steep for your desired time just like a French press.
After that time, you open the valve to release the coffee which passes through your choice of filter (paper, reusable).
I pre-heat the dripper with boiling water (as I do my French press), then brew my coffee.
Advantages of this dripper:
1. Much easier cleanup.
2. Better filtering choices - paper or what I prefer, a swiss gold reusable.
Advantages of a French press:
1. Can handle larger volumes of coffee - Bonavita dripper only handles 14oz (they claim 16oz).
2. Better heat retention during steeping if a vacuum/stainless French press is used.
3. Can be cheaper than the vastly overpriced (IMHO) Bonavita. If you notice my choice below, French presses can also be much more expensive too.
To get this thread back on track after my detour, when I use a French press, I use the also vastly overpriced (IMHO) Espro 32oz stainless vacuum French press.

French Press is one of the nicest way of making coffee at home and I too prefer them. I have sterling Pro and love the way it makes coffee and keeps it hot for some while. There are many other options of French Presses these days but just pick any of them that is dishwasher safe and doesn't contains much of plastic parts. Rest, everything is almost same in every piece.

I just purchased a 3 cup Bodum french press, and I am trying to get the method down. But I am enjoying the coffee more, I don't really need to add sugar and half/half. Pretty interesting.
