    BEST FRENCH PRESS

    What are some affordable French Presses no more than $30?

    How long does the coffee stay heated/warm in a french press?

    In need of some sort of coffee maker, I left my at home and these long nights of grad school studying are killing me. I really don't want to buy a regular coffee maker b/c I only want to brew around 3 cups or so and I also need something POTENT, hahaha. Thanks in advance.
    Brewing Method: Aeropress

    You can find them pretty cheap. As to keeping them hot, you want to transfer your coffee to a carafe. When you transfer the coffee it will assure that you do not over extract your brew!

    You can buy the 8 cup (32oz) Bodum Chambord at Target for $29.00. My favorite is the 4C(16oz) Chambord:

    I know nothing about presses, but others rave over what Bodum offers. I'd pay a little more and get something with a high end build quality, like a metal filter in the bottom instead of cheaper plastic. Later!

    I usually use the Aeropress for making coffee (GREAT coffee!!!), but I need something that will make a few more cups for when company comes. I was thinking about a French press. I have a few questions:

    Are the beakers and plungers the same on all Bodum press pots? I know some have stainless steel handles and some have plastic ones, but are the innards all created equal?

    Has anyone ever tried Tiamo press pots?

    Thanks

    I personally would go with Bodum french press. Once you brew the coffee you should transfer it to a thermo so that the coffee does not get over-extracted.

    I you are the sort of person who leaves the coffee in the french press for a long time then consider getting BonJour french press (they design the filter in a unique way that prevents over-extracting the coffee).

    My web site has several pages dedicated to french press coffee maker, you may find them useful. Don't worry, I am not selling anything - just talking about the different types of french press and giving some tips about using it.
