  Thank goodness I learned a long, long time ago that real coffee comes from a french press.  High quality fresh beans are mandatory.  Grind them up, boil your water and let it steep.  No messy, expensive and non-biodegradable filters to fight with and best of all, easy clean up, grinds go right down the drain!  The coffee is strong and pure, no off tastes here.  The only way to really appreciate your beans is with a Bodum.

Flimsy Quality for a High Price

I prefer my coffee pressed since it tends to bring out the roast more, and most presses generally last a while. However, the Bodum Young 34 oz. French press gave me a lot of problems from the start. While I appreciate, the case for the beaker so that I could freely move and grab my french press while it was in use, the quality of the actual filter plate was beyond flimsy. I began to notice that some of my grounds were slipping up and escaping to the top so I kept adjusting the grind but regardless of the ground of the bean nothing seemed to do. It turned out that the plate wasn't fitting in properly, and after a few uses the filter plate was so bad that it was not even usable because it was bent. I would bend it back but it kept becoming disfigured, and I strictly hand washed this press. It is a shame because the quality of the beaker, and the case were very nice, and it was easy to clean, but with the amount of trouble the press gave me it wasn't worth it.

      I am very happy because this pregnant woman is already there. He helped me a lot in my work. He helps me to regain my activity when the coffee machine breaks down. It reduces the coffee's comfort, but the only drawback is that if you forget it, cool it, but this is not important. I advise you to buy this pregnant.

      By not using direct heat on the coffee preparation, the result is a always well prepared coffee enhancing flavours without toasting over flavour.

            Comments about Bodum Young 34-oz. French Press:

            I'm a coffee lover, and I've heard that the best cup comes from being made with a french press. I searched online and found the best reviews with this one. The coffee was good. I followed the directions, and bought high quality coffee. I was very pleased with the taste. The downside is that it's not very attractive. The glass was very thin and felt very fragile. The handle wasnt sturdy, but it was easy to grip. It isn't the easiest thing to clean. It's not something that I would use for every day use, but would maybe come in handy on camping trips or when the electricity is out.
            I'd say it's okay. I wasn't in love with it, but I don't hate it. I don't regret my purchase, and will use it every now and then. I think it would be a good gift for a coffee lover that has some free time. It's just not practical for every day use. The price on it isn't bad either, compared to some of the others I checked out. Keep in mind that this isn't hard thick glass when you are looking at others. It looks from pictures like it is very thick.

              Comments about Bodum Young 34-oz. French Press:

              After every one of my friends singing the praises of what excellent coffee a French press makes, I gave in and purchased one. I did my research first and saw that the Bodum won the American Culinary Institute's award for best French press coffeemaker. I tend to trust that organization so I decided to purchase it.

              I followed the exact instructions to make the perfect cup of coffee. I used good coffee beans, ground them fresh, and used the right water temperature and plunging technique. While it did make a good cup of coffee, it wasn't anything I would praise nor was it worthy of the praise my friends made of it.

              However, the coffee press itself is designed better than the other's I've seen, but the glass is far too thin. The handle is sturdy, the plunger work well, and the pot keeps the coffee hot for longer than I expected. Though I won't use this on a regular basis, it would be perfect for the times the power goes out and I have to heat hot water on our wood burner stove.

              Overall, if you can tell a difference in French Press coffee and other coffee, I highly recommend you chose the Bodum Young French Press.

              Be wary of the thin glass and pressing the plunger too hard, but otherwise it's a great for the prince.
