Love it. Bought it at Starbucks, unfortunately... I've never seen them anywhere else.

After I broke yet another glass one, making two in a month, I decided it would be better to spend the extra $$ and get the all-stainless one. It's been great - the coffee stays hot longer (DH gets up before me and makes the coffee) and I don't have to worry about knocking it into the sink or off the counter.

Finally pregnant with #1 and #2! Due September 9th, 2014

so, do coffee presses work just as well as a drip coffee maker? we have a vacuum coffee maker (bodum) right now, but it will need to be replaced soon. dh wants a drip, but i don't like not being able to clean all the tubes etc. the vacuum is all accessible, like the press.

also (can you tell i haven't used one before) how long does it take for the coffee to brew? do you use the same ratio as a drip maker?

thanks for the info!

I have a stainless and pyrex one from Ikea...If it was real glass it would be toast by now. I love it. Also, to the PP, it takes a LOT less time, like, five minutes, but it makes less coffee, and I do put a scoop more than I do in a normal coffee maker. However, I think it has better flavor.

In retrospect, I have seen all stainless steel percolators, but never a press. The percolators were for camping, and can be found at REI or somesuch. Those made wonderful coffee, too.
