I got my new French press today and I think I just had a religious experience.
Let me explain: My old French press was made of that “indestructible” plastic stuff that water bottles are made of, and it cracked in the dishwasher after many uses. However, there was always coffee grounds sludge at the bottom of my mug when I used it. No big deal, really, as the coffee was still miles better than K-cup coffee.
My new French press is glass, not fancy, but it is AMAZING. If I had known how amazing perfectly strained French press coffee was I would have upgraded a long time ago.
