French Press Coffee & Tea Makers

I love coffee made by French Press, aka Plunger Pot and Cafetiere à Piston. You can make it stronger than electric drip coffee, because you control the amount and grind of coffee, and you control the steeping time. The press takes up little counter space and can easily be stored in a cabinet.

With the traditional French Press, the coffee may not be as hot as that made in another type of coffeemaker, however here are a few things that will help you get the perfect hot cup.

First and foremost, to get a good tasting cup always measure coffee and water accurately and consistently. We recommend using one  tablespoon of coarsely ground coffee per 4 oz water. Adjust to taste; a bit of experimentation when you first start using it can bring you very worthwhile results.

Second, for a hotter cup, immerse or fill the French Press in the hottest water you can get from the tap or with water you're heating for the coffee, then pour out. (Remember, it's laboratory glass, borosilicate, so it won't break as long as you don't expose it to sudden and drastic temperature changes. And neither will the polycarbonate one.)

Third, rinse your coffee cup with hot water just before you pour the coffee into it, so that the cold cup doesn't cool down the coffee.

It's French Press coffee time!

  • Remove the lid and filter assembly.
  • Measure coffee grounds into the coffeemaker.
  • Pour very hot water over it, filling to the desired level.
  • Replace the lid and filter assembly, keeping the filter at the top.
  • Let coffee and water steep together for 2 to 5 minutes, depending on desired strength; the longer they steep, the stronger the coffee.
  • Now take the plunge; slowly push the plunger down, to filter the coffee. Doing this slowly will keep most of the grounds under the filter of the plunger.
  • Pour the filtered coffee, sit back, and enjoy!

To clean, hot sudsy water (or your dishwasher) will work just fine in removing coffee oils. It's a good idea to occasionally disassemble the filter assembly to clean thoroughly. 

  • The plunger stem unscrews at the base from the cross plate. 
  • The cross plate is the disc with a cross shape and screw hole. 
  • The spreader is the round multi-hole disc with the spring that spreads the mesh filter.
  • The stainless mesh (and nylon - if available) filters keep grinds at the bottom.

To replace the carafe on most units, you'll need to loosen the screw(s) on the handle until the carafe is loose from the metal band. Our replacement carafes fit Bodum, BonJour and other major brand French Press coffee makers.

Replacement Carafes / Beakers

Please Note: Coffeemaker and carafe sizes are listed in the traditional French Press capacities; for which a "cup" measures approximately 4 oz. You may wish to refer to the capacities shown as a better measure of size, and to the dimensions shown as a better reference for replacements.

Please Note: This is an uncommon size.
Though it is the same diameter as the 8- & 6-Cup carafes, and will thus fit in most 8- and 6-cup frames, it is shorter, and the plunger will not fit properly. It is more common to Bodum units.
You may wish to check the height of the replacement you need before ordering this unit. Thanks.
