Francois et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press ~ Product Review
Time for another product review!
I was given the opportunity to try out a Francois et Mimi French Press coffee pot and I was super excited to do so! I've heard the hype about these "machines" but have never experienced coffee brewed in one before. I was not disappointed!
My oldest daughter is our resident coffee connoisseur so she did the dirty work and showed me how to make our pot of coffee. We ground some fresh beans (Starbucks...) and put them in the bottom of the press.
Step 2 was to heat the water to boiling and once it boiled, pour it into the pot. Let it steep for about 3 to 5 minutes. The aroma at this point was wonderful!
Then you push the press down so you can pour out your coffee without getting any grounds. Boy, was this a great cup of coffee! Bold and robust and full of flavor.
This is a great coffee press. It is well constructed and not flimsy at all. The carafe is glass and the metal is all stainless. The mess inside is very fine so it will allow water to go thru but keep your grounds safely at the bottom. And, it is a generous 50 oz which makes a FULL pot of coffee - not a single cup - but a full pot than can be shared with a few others (depending on how big your cups are!).
All in all, I was very happy with this item and highly recommend it! I look forward to many more pots of fresh brewed coffee and also using it for tea (not sure how that would work but am betting it will work find with tea leaves).
