French press coffee makers

After looking into making my own hemp seed beverages, as well as other teas, I became interested in French coffee makers. A French press coffee maker is a pitcher with a rod attached to the lid with a filter on it. After the beverage is done brewing, you press the plunger down and the filter pushes the material down and it strains it out.

After buying my first French press, a Primula, I was pleased at first, the first couple beverages coming out great, but wanted to modify the design a little bit or shop around for a new one. I felt the filter should be able to be removed and come apart for cleaning, as little pieces of debris would get stuck in it. This was my sketch of French press I then designed.

The top piece of the filter should unscrew from the rod attached to the lid. The top piece should then screw or snap into the bottom piece, holding the filter in the middle of them. Perhaps a rubber ring would then go around them to help seal the filter inside the pitcher.

Does anyone have any reviews for a better French press, or know how to clean my Primula?

There may be some better ones on the market, but I have a Bodum French press, and you can in fact take the filter apart for cleaning. I've had mine for about 10 years now. Good luck!

You may buy a Bodum

Bodum's are best when it comes to French Presses. They give the perfect things in this category. Another good piece to consider is the Kona French Press. They don't have many options but their single design has surpassed many superior one's. Have a look at this List of Top French Presses

Here is my method...lol

1qt mason jar with fresh grounds and hot water. Once ready filter through a fine strainer into cup.


I have a bodum and a couple other french presses collecting dust now.

For some reason the flavor is much better from the strainer, at least IMO so far.

How are you posting here without electricity?


I highly recommend the big ass insulated stainless steel Bodum. Chambourg or some such floufy frogger name. It's worth the added cost if you like hot french press coffee over rapidly cooling coffee.

I want me one of those little rinky dink drippers they use in Viet restaurants. And a gallon of sweetened condensed milk.

Been using a french press the last year and Love it.

I put a 1/4cup of grounds in the bottom, pour boiling water halfway up the pot and wait 2 minutes, then fill the rest up and wait 5-6 minutes before I press. No stirring.

I recently got into cold brewing coffee and a french press works great. With about a 7:1 ratio of room temperature water and fresh coarse grounds and a brew time of about 12-24 hours in the fridge, you end up with a very strong brew with a higher caffeine content and much lower acidity. Try it, it's damn good.
