These stylish French presses serve up an amazing brew, with a double-wall, vacuum-sealed exterior which provides superior insulation and durability over traditional glass French Press models. With the patented Bru-Stop™ press screen, the extraction process is halted once pressed down, resulting in an amazingly fresh-tasting cup, from the first sip to the last. The Bru-Stop™ features a precisely placed barrier plate that hovers over the French press screen. It allows the brewed coffee (or tea) to freely flow until fully pressed down. Then the plate recesses into the ultra-fine mesh screen frame and creates a physical barrier between the grounds and brewed coffee. This halts the brewing process and prevents coffee from becoming over-extracted and bitter, no matter how long you let the coffee stay in the French Press.
FYI: French pressing coffee is one of the purest ways to extract the flavor profile The Coffee Roaster intended. Be sure to use coarse coffee grounds, adding about 2 tbsp. for every 8 oz. of water. Pour over with clean, filtered, almost-boiling water and let steep for 3 to 5 minutes, depending on your strength preference. Press, pour, and enjoy! Coffee lovers will love tracking their coffee’s flavors in the 33 Cups Of Coffee journal and don’t forget the Coffee Scoop for precise measuring and brewing.
