How to Use a French Press Via HowcastFoodDrink


  • The very first coffee press was actually made from France. It was a metal or cheesecloth screen that is fitted into a rod that would be the one pressing into a pot of water that is boiling.
  • In 1929, it was actually patented by a designer from Milan named Attilio Calimani
  • The coffee press or known as the French press since it originated from France, underwent a lot of design modification through the person of Failero Bondanini.
  • In 1958, he made his very own coffee press and he also began manufacturing it for Martin SA, which is a French clarinet factory
  • And in 1965, this product has been used and became popular for the movie The Ipcress File by Michael Caine

The History Of The French Press Via craftbeveragejobs


A coffee french doesn't really work well with drip brew coffee filter, instead, it works the best with a coarser grind.

And when the finer grounds immerse on water, it will have lower permeability and it will require the excessive amount of force to be able to be applied by the person’s hand to be able to lower the plumber to seep through the perimeter of the filter and finally into the coffee.


FRENCH PRESS – these types are more portable and very self-contained compared to coffee makers. There are versions of coffee presses that is suitable for traveling because it comes with travel mug types that is actually made from tough plastic.

These can be used by bikers, hikers and other backpackers who just love to travel and the ones who does not like to carry inconvenient heavy things. There are also some that are made of stainless steel to keep the coffee hot.

  • DID YOU KNOW? That coffee presses can also brew cold coffee


SterlingPro Coffee & Espresso Maker

My best choice for the coffee press is the SterlingPro Coffee & Espresso Maker. It brews 8 cups of fresh coffee and it looks very elegant and sophisticated.

It would make you feel like you are sipping a cup of coffee in the streets of Paris.

Things We Liked

  • This type of coffee press is definitely well-built. Because it is an actually made from borosilicate glass that is, of course, heat-resistant.
  • It also very affordable despite it being one of the best in the market.
  • This coffee press has a plastic liner that is attached to the lid to prevent it from overheating.
  • It also uses a double screen system to make the coffee grounds stay in the pot.
  • It is also very easy to clean and to maintain

Things We Didn't Like

  • The coffee ground can easily get stuck between the screen

Bodum Chambord French Press

Now, this is a close competitor of the SterlingPro since it is the very good second favorite. It also has a borosilicate glass carafe.

However, the lid is also plastic but what is so good about it is that it doesn't come in contact with the coffee. And it is also dishwasher safe.

  • It is also very affordable for a good quality coffee press.
  • It features a three-part filter even if it doesn't have a dual screen so it also keeps the grounds from coming out.
  • This coffee press also has a minimalistic design which is actually very nice and doesn't really need a steel cage.

Things We Didn't Like

  • It can only make one large cup of coffee and two small cups.
  • It is rather tiny and only has less than 1.5L. False advertising is very disappointing.

Grosche Madrid

This French press has a unique modern design which is very nice to look at especially if it is placed in the kitchen.

  • It also as has a three part stainless steel filter just like the Bodum
  • This coffee press also comes with a feature that lets you turn the lid close to the pot so you can keep your coffee warm.

Things We Didn't Like

  • Unfortunately, it is not very durable and only lasted for three months.
  • The coffee ground doesn't get filtered nicely
  • Kind of pricey

Frieling Polished

Now this coffee press, on the other hand, is a little more expensive as well.

But what is so nice about it is that it has a double walls stainless steel and the exterior is mirror finish that makes it looks very appealing and neat.

Things We Didn't Like

  • It is also very pricey for a coffee press
  • It doesn't have a flat bottom so it is not very stable
  • It only produces 16 ounces

SterlingPro Double Wall

Now we have another SterlingPro on the list because this brand is just so nice and can really be trusted.

However, it is at the last position because it compared to all of the coffee press we have reviewed, it works well but not really that great but it is still on the Top 5, and that means it is still greater than the other ones out there.
