Recycled Coffee Press by Bodum®, 4-cup
Perfect size for single apartment
This is my first coffee maker and I absolutely love it! With me being a single apartment dweller, this makes the perfect amount of high quality coffee every morning and the price is unbeatable. It is easy to use, doesn't take up a lot of space, AND it's made from some recycled materials so it's a win-win-win.
The only confusing thing is the discrepancy between the bean/water ratio which seems to be different everywhere I look, whether in the included instructions, on Starbuck's website, or via other online sources. But once you figure out what works and how you like your coffee, this is the perfect companion! Three thumbs up :P

Nice place to start!
I purchased this coffee press for the price, love it for the ease of use. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on my first coffee press until I felt like I knew what I was doing. This is a great place to start. The press is just the right size and it all comes apart to clean it easily. Also all parts are dishwasher safe which is a bonus.

Nice coffee press
The coffee press is nice and makes good coffee. I had to get a replacement though because the first one I received would slip right out of the plastic holder when it got hot.
The replacement works better and while it's still very easy to take the beaker out to clean when it's hot, it doesn't just fall out the way the first one did.
Beware, I looked for replacement beakers online while I was waiting for Starbucks to get back to me, and I couldn't find any in this size.

Simple and Flavorful
I love my new coffee press! It is well crafted, simple to use, easy to clean, and the coffee tastes wonderful. I love the Zen of the whole brewing/pressing process. It was a great value as well.

Makes Amazing Coffee
I am a big fan of French press coffee. I have tried drip coffee, Aeropress coffee, and pour over coffee, but the coffee I come back to every day is French press, and I have yet to come across a better French press than the Bodum brand one. (In addition to this one, I currently have five other Bodum presses.) While my large and medium sized presses are the Chambord type, for the small personal sized presses, I prefer the plastic holders, as I use them every day and it is a much more reasonable replacement price and they do break easily. That said: it usually costs about the same amount to replace the whole press as it does to replace the glass. So, I usually hold onto the non-glass bits, replace the whole thing and then have replacement parts for when those break.
