Good Coffee Quality Quality fit and finish Beautiful yet functional Enjoyable product, (I like drinking this instead of whiskey or other alcohol)
Negative Product Points
Small (I would like to get the next size up next time) Hard to get the grind right (I think that I have to learn the proper technique and I am getting better at it). Hard to clean
My friend told me about French Press coffee and I thought that I would try it out for myself, so I got myself a small one that was not junk so that I could teach myself how to make this type of coffee. I have gotten to the point that I could make it work for myself and I would like to get a bigger size in the near future. I like the product I can drink, however, getting there has been some practice in the making. I do not have a really good grinder and I would like to get a better one for this purpose in the future.
As far as the product is concerned, I really like the quality and fit and finish of the product. I was amazed how beautiful a french press could be, and I was really happy to start making coffee in it as soon as possible. I did not know that I would like french press so much. I think that getting a quality product as a starter made me want to use it more, and it has held up very well.
On the downside; I really think that cleaning this product is a act in futility sometimes, and I really have to get in there and scrub hard with a sponge to get the stains out after using. I think that this is due to the size that I got, and I think that with a bigger size that it would be a little easier. I also had a hard time getting the grind right, and I thought that the end product could have been a little better. I think that this is due to technique rather than the product itself. Finally, I want a bigger size, due to the fact that I get about one cup of coffee out of a pot this size. I would like to go to the next size up next time.
The buying experience was okay, but could have been better. I would have rather bought from Bed Bath & Beyond rather than this place. I felt that the people at this place were less than helpful to me and I would have rather done business elsewhere
