I have never used a french press before, but after the Alabama Tornado a couple years ago I realized that having a non-electric coffee maker might be something preppers should have.
So when Kona contacted me and asked if I wanted to review their french press I said sure (they supplied the press, but they aren’t paying for the review).
I found the press to be very simple, and I liked how the press is made of wire screen, and is replaceable (it came with extra, but I think you could also make it).
What I did not like was the fact that the container was glass. While this might not be an issue for normal usage, this isn’t something you would take camping.
Since I don’t drink coffee, I tried tea. After drinking french press tea, I went and bought loose tea, because I thought it tasted much better than what comes out of my “Mr. T” tea machine.
Once again, I have received nothing except the press in return for my honest opinion, and my honest opinion is that this is pretty useful but since I don’t drink fancy coffee I am going to put this press in the closet until I need it to make tea when I don’t have electricity for my Mr. Tea machine.
