I was very excited when I was asked to review the Gear Ultimate French Press because I have never drank coffee from a French Press!!! I was honestly a little worried about the whole process and how it would even work. I figured it would be too hard and I had told myself that before it even arrived. I'm happy to report that I was wrong, and I'm not sure how other presses work, but I can assume they work in the same way which means you need to take the worry and fear out of using a French Press.
I was very excited to see a model that not only had a great price! I did a search and found that an 8 cup press could cost up to $200 but this one will cost you under $30 and I believe it works wonderfully. The price is affordable and the instructions are easy to use, so for those new to pressing their coffee, this would be a great investment. I am very happy to have tried coffee from a French Press.
I love that this is a glass press, and since it's silver it will match any kitchen decor. I'm excited about having it out on my countertop for my guests to see (you never know who will show up and want coffee). I have never done this before and the instructions were simple, easy to read, and even had pictures so that helped me a lot! The instruction booklet doubled as a recipe booklet too, and had recipes for Iced Coffee and even Tea. I had no idea you could make tea in a french press!
I'm so happy I got to try this, now I would love to hear some great coffee recipes!!!
