This French press coffee maker sports a modern design, with its narrow cylindrical glass jug, equipped with a lid, stainless plunger and wire mesh filter, which fits tightly in the cylinder glass beaker. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, and then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the glass jug. A French press requires coffee of a coarser grind than that used for a drip brew coffee filter, such as produced by a burr mill grinder rather than the whirling blade variety, as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. Because the coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grinds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter, coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee's flavor and essential oils, which would become trapped in a traditional drip brew machine's paper filters. French pressed coffee is usually stronger and thicker and has more sediment than drip-brewed coffee.
FRENCH PRESSED COFFEE: French presses are preferred by many Europeans and are quickly gaining popularity in North America. This inimitable method off coffee preparation adds a heavy body to compliment the unique flavors of whatever coffee beans you choose to use. By excluding the use of a paper filter, the rich oils of the coffee bean are allowed to seep in and make the perfect cup of rich, decadent coffee.
EXCEPTIONAL DESIGN: The Primula Tempo Coffee Press features a modern, stylish design with high-quality, durable glass. The handle is made from a heat resistant plastic that not only provides you with a firm and reliable grip, but also allows your hand to stay cool while pouring hot coffee. It’s easy to use right out of the box, making it perfect for beginners and java aficionados alike.

It maintains the oil and flavor of the coffee grounds while eliminating agents that cause bitter and sour tastes. Enjoy invigorating, full bodied cups of coffee with minimal effort.
