Had this in the field for military training. Best thing I ever bought
I love this little french press. I bought it for traveling in my 21 foot campervan. But, it will also be useful for kayak camping trips, where I will make my buddies jealous of my fresh ground coffee in the morning. It is easy to use, compact to store, and easy to clean. The coffee comes out perfect every time. I also think this will make a great gift for friends that are on the go.
Makes great coffee
I’ll start off by saying that the pros far outweigh the cons of this coffee kit. Pros first: The grinder works really well and was easy to adjust. It also feels really well made. The French Press also feels really solid and well made. The screen inside kept any of the grinds from getting into my coffee even though I probably used too fine a grind for the first few batches of coffee. The only negative I encountered was that the French Press leaked a bit when I put it my bag while out mountain biking. To be fair, the terrain I was riding on was super chunky and probably not a typical use case for it. Otherwise all good!
We love the Press and Grinder. We have now used it on two trips and it works very well. Rough grind our beans, place the filter screen half way in, and add water. After 30-60 minutes, move the filter up and down to speed the cold brew. Within 3 hours we have a GREAT cup of cold brewed coffee. Highly recommended. Great quality and workmanship.
Coffee stays hot a long time.
