This french press is one of the easies to clean that I've ever owned. If you like full flavored coffee but only want to make a cup or two at a time this is ideal, or if you run out of filters and want a quick cup of coffee.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I do not recommend this coffee maker. The design of the pot lid and the mating plunger of the filter basket doesn't match up well and I get coffee on the outside of the pot and pooling on my counter. I have tried every position for the pot and nothing works. I put 12 cups worth of water in and get 8 cups of coffee and a puddle.
No, I do not recommend this product.

Does this product work with normal Gevalia ground coffee? Other press brewers seem to require course ground coffee.

The screen in this press is very fine however it is not a paper filter. I use the regular ground Gevalia coffee with this exact French Press. There are some very fine particles that make it through. If that is a deal breaker I wouldn’t recommend using any French Press. The biggest pro of a French Press is that the essential oils in the coffee grounds stay in the coffee they are not trapped in the filter.

How does the French Press work?

I have seen it, but I am curious HOW it works? Does it require a special filter? How many cups does it make at one time? How long after adding the water do you wait before using the plunger? I really need to know all of it.
Thank you.
1. No special filter is needed. The plunger acts as the filter. The fine screen keeps the grounds under the plunger.

2. This model makes about 2 regular mugs of coffee. If you get the matching cups that come with the press it's about 4 of those cups.

3. After adding the water my preference is to wait about 2-3 minutes before pushing the plunger down – it also depends on the roast or flavor of the coffee I’m drinking. Since the grounds are still in the water the coffee intensity will continue to increase until all of the coffee has been poured out of the press.

4. To use - The coffee grounds are placed in the bottom, pour close to boiling water in to about 1/2"-1" below the pour spout (this is important do not fill to just below the spout because when you put the lid on and start pushing the plunger the grounds and water will erupt out of the spout making a mess or getting grounds above the plunger and into your drinkable coffee). Place the lid on with the plunger at the top. Wait until the coffee appears to be at the intensity that is desired and then slowly push the plunger down to the bottom. Pour and enjoy. When finished remove the plunger and discard the grounds. I usually try to wipe as much out with a paper towel, but some of the grounds will stick to the plunger screen and the glass pot, just rinse off.

5. I use it at work where we have a water cooler that has a “hot” dispenser. It’s a quick option when I want Gevalia coffee but don’t want a whole pot.
