Positive Product Points

Brews great coffee or tea on the go and at home.  Small, easy to clean, screw on lid and has a nice little spout for pouring.

Negative Product Points

Completely plastic with the exception of the rod and filter.  No handle and the pressing knob is flat. Some grinds in coffee.

Detailed Commentary

I was looking for a small coffee press for myself and found one.  A bodum travel press which makes about one cup of good coffee.  The body is plastic, with quotation design, and the lid which screws onto the body is also. The plastic does not hold heat very well, but its quick coffee for one person on the go, so it should not get cold while stepping.  The only metal on the press is the press rod and the mesh filter.  Around the outside of the filter is a rubber O-ring like which stops grinds from entering the brewed coffee.  The nice little spout at the top and flush lieing knob allows you to easily pour or the coffee or drink it straight from press.  But stepping aside from coffee I also have brewed tea in it.  The tea i believe was probaly some of the best I have ever had at home. For it you must use whole leaf tea.

Buying Experience

I bought the press at a Barnes&Noble bookstore cafe.  From what I remember it only cost about ten dollars.  Not bad for the bodum name and the quality brew. There was also a variety of sizes and quality french presses sold at the location. Better selction than any $tarbucks, and more affordable. It was also in Delaware, so no sales tax :^)  I've looked online and could not find this particular press anywhere. Exclusive to B&N stores I guess.
