I've been searching for a new press pot to make myself a good 14ish oz mug a day and came across this one:
http://prima-coffee.com/hario/dgc-40-ov#.UmcewJR4ZDI

It is made by Hario and looks like no other press pot I've seen before. I like that (it appears) there isn't a single bit of plastic in it, it is transparent, and double-walled for insulation. I think I saw on the forums that there was an older double-walled Hario that got discontinued and that was well liked.

Anyway, I want to know if anyone has any experience with this, or if you could foresee any problems with its design before I go ahead and get it! Also, can anyone comment on the quality of Hario's glass?

So critique away (and please offer alternatives if you can).

Maybe we should start an official French Press Power Rankings thread or something.

+1 on the Espro.

read his review on his website.  It's not only excellent, but it represents exactly what you can expect from this press.  In other words, the press is as awesome as Randy makes it out to be.

Since I received my first Espro (1 litre) April 2012 I have been convinced that no other presses measure up. I did how ever continue using a couple Bodum presses when making between 9 to 20 ounces of coffee.

That totally changed since I have my new medium (18 ounce) Espro. I usually use it four times a day to make coffee for my wife and my self. If I am slow to get the Espro cleaned and use a single filter press pot instead, my wife will comment "You didn't use the Espro did you? I really prefer when you do."

I received my Kickstarter medium Espro in Aug. so production units of the size you would need should be easily available.

The medium Espro has two fill lines on the inner wall. I use the top (18 oz.) line, but the lower line should be just about what you want if you want to only weigh beans and not water each time.

Your comments are very much appreciated, emradguy.

One thing I said in my review which I still stand by is that the Espro press makes the traditional press pot obsolete.

You're quite welcome! Credit where credit is due...as always, I feel your site is under-utilized.  And I fully agree with your lower statement.  My traditional fp sits on the shelf unused.
