I adore my French press. I mean ah-dore it!!!

French Press from

If you saw my Perfect Cold Brew Coffee recipe today over in Cooking, you know how I love my French press. It is seriously one of my very favorite kitchen appliances – electric or not – and that is saying a ton!

Like I mentioned, it is regularly in use in my kitchen making cold brew coffee for iced coffees and other things, but, I also enjoy it for making a hot coffee or coffee drinks, teas, and such.

I have used a few different brands of French presses, but the ones that I have now are by Bodum. I like the clean, classic lines, the sturdiness of the handles and the plunger, and how well it cleans.

By the way, Bodum has no clue who in the world I am.

You can find French presses in varying sizes – from 3 cup to 12 cup and so many in between! They make them in shatterproof, insulated and the more traditional item as shown. We love them for carrying with us on camping trips, too!

I have smaller individual sizes for a quick cup of hot coffee in the mornings to the largest 12-cup capacity French press for making for a crowd or large amounts of cold brew coffee for the week!

So, now that I’ve sung the praises of my French press, I want to share them with you!

  1. I make cold brew coffee too as I have to start my morning with a very large iced coffee with skim milk and 1 sweet and low – oh and I brew with cinnamon and add a drop or two of chocolate syrup to my coffee. Yum!

  2. I love French press with cream and stevia! There is a little Greek restaurant in town that offers wonderful French press coffee- my favorite go to place with my hubby for date night! Nothing tastes better!

  3. I had a French Press coffee pot a number of years ago! My brother gave it to me. It made the best pot of coffee I ever had, I loved it. I cracked the glass container cleaning it in the sink :(. I threw it out never realizing I could replace the container. I haven’t been able to replace it :(. I miss it so much it. I would just love to win one!

  4. I love hot coffee with cream and sweet n low or iced coffee. I love anything coffee flavored too.

  5. I cannot drink black coffee, but I still need it to be a strong, dark roast. I love a little flavored cream in it, especially hazelnut. I drink tea the English way too, with milk and sugar.

  6. I like my coffee sweet and light. I adore it iced in the warmer months. But if I win, I’m gifting this to my husband who has a hokey french press. He really needs a nicer one. 🙂

  7. Coffee, you bet! Hot,black and full! No morning complete or calm without it.
