The Francois Et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press has completely changed the way I drink my coffee. I was so blown away, that I promptly got rid of my single serving drip coffee maker. The press makes my coffee taste richer, smoother, and extremely delicious cup after cup.
The simple yet attractive design of the press features a Chrome Finish & see-thru Borosilicate Glass which likely fits the theme of any kitchen. The sizing is generous in holding 50 ounces total which calculated is a little over six cups of course ground coffee or loose leaf tea. The capacity of this pot makes it an ideal size for three to four people whether for use at home or in an office setting.
The filter on the press is micro-mesh. It’s easy to clean by hand but also can be placed into the dishwasher. I like that fact I able to clean every single nook and cranny easily. After I’ve drank my coffee, I’ll take the plunger off, fill the pot with water, swish it around, and dump the inner contents into my outdoor compost!
How to use this press is like any other. The first step is to add the desired amount of tea or coffee to the press. The second step is to pour hot water onto the inner contents, place the plunger on but don’t push it down, then wait five minutes. After five minutes has passed, you’ll push the plunger bar down making sure the pouring spout is faced away from you. In pushing down, all the ground or loose tea will be pushed to the bottom free from being poured into your cup.
There are many pros to using this press such as no need to use a filter, it’s space saving, there’s no plug to worry about, steeping coffee to ones personal taste is simple, it’s great for the environment, and it’s affordable. Cons can be sludge and grounds if coffee isn’t course enough. It isn’t exactly time saving since you’ll need to warm hot water and wait while it’s steeping but a good cup of coffee or tea is worth a little extra effort, in my opinion.
