#Review - Brew the Best Coffee Or Tea in a French Press Glass Carafe from FP Coffee Makers



Are you a little dissatisfied with your old coffee maker?  Would you like to brew a delicious pot of coffee that would taste just as good, if not better, as that special brew from your favorite coffee shop?


Here's the secret of a great cup of coffee or even tea that will give you all the delicious flavor that you get from that little coffee shop you go to, the FP Coffee Makers French Press Coffee Maker.  This will cleanly brew you a great pot of coffee or tea infused with great flavor.  This French press is a classy addition to any kitchen - quality craftsmanship with a simple, modern design.


- Heavy-duty borosilicate glass carafe fits firmly in the durable plastic frame
- Metal mesh filter delivers flavorful coffee while keeping the grounds out of your cup
- Sturdy plastic lid, frame and handle
- Clean-up is a snap - you can quickly rinse the filter clean or easily disassemble it to go in the dishwasher
- Comes with simple instructions for use and care


My husband and I will occasionally drink coffee, and will gladly brew a pot for anyone who comes to visit, but we usually drink tea everyday.  So to show you how well this French press works, we used tea leaves.   Since the pot is a generous 32 ounce size, I added five teaspoons of tea leaves to the pot then added fresh hot boiling water.  For coffee, use 1 rounded tablespoon of course ground coffee (not finely ground) for each 4 ounce cup of coffee you wish to prepare.


Once the water has been added, either tea or coffee, just give the water a little stir.  Just wait for the amount of time you wish to brew.  I waited 4 minutes for our tea to brew.  For coffee, you need to wait at least 4 minutes.  I have actually experimented with brewing coffee, and found that we were happy with about 5 minutes of brewing time.  When my brother-in-law and his wife come to visit, we leave it to brew a full 7 minutes.  Yeah, they like it strong.


When the tea (or coffee) is done brewing, start pressing the the knob slowly down.  Be sure the spout is pointed away from you just in case you have overfilled the pot.  You should also keep a hold of the pot as well (my daughter pressed the knob down very gently for me while I took pictures so we didn't really worry about it falling over).  The plastic frame is quite sturdy.  The filter works so well if you press slowly.  Pressing too quickly, and the filter may clog up on you.  If this happens, just pull it up and out, stir the contents, and start pressing down again more slowly than before.


Time to pour.  Be it coffee or tea, we never have found any tea leaves or grounds in our drink.  Always perfectly brewed with rich flavor.

Washing the pot after use is quite easy.  To properly clean, just unscrew the filter assembly from the bottom of the plunger rod and wash.  All parts are dishwasher safe.  Dry all parts thoroughly before putting it away.


I love brewing tea or coffee in the FP Coffee Makers French Press.  It is so much more convenient than our old drip coffee makers.  No more do I have to buy coffee filters, nor do I have to have "fun" giving that old drip maker a vinegar run through to clean out the hard water in the machine. What's another big difference between this French press and an electric coffee maker besides delivering better flavor?  You never have to plug in the French press.  Thus the French press is the Eco-friendlier option as opposed to the latter.

  1. I really love that for making tea. Especially if you are having a guest, it makes it a real "process". I have never used one, but I would most definitely give it a try.
