Just the facts ma'am...without unnecessary bells and whistles. The Shin Bistro coffee maker creates a consistent French press coffee every morning (and night, for those real coffee junkies). Tastefully appointed with features like an exposed brew chamber and stay-cool handle, this dishwasher-safe coffee press is ideal for every day use.
A Note About Coffee & Cups
Let us break it down for you: Although 8 ounces equals a cup in the baking world, a US cup of coffee is measured at 6 ounces and a European cup of coffee is measured at 4.25 ounces. This is why we sometimes list ounces to paint a more accurate picture of capacity.

When water is not quite boiling (many bubbles forming on the bottom of the pan), I pour the water over the grounds. Stir it with a large spoon,and put the filter top on the pot. 2-3minutes later, I press the plunger slowly to the bottom and bring it back to the top. Another 2 minutes and I press the plunger halfway down and pour my first cup. When ready for the second cup, I press the plunger to the bottom - the second cup is always stronger and more flavorful..

Works great. I suggest you declare Experiment Time and make three pots of coffee in a row, using your best guess as to Too Much grounds, Too Little, and Just Right. You'll get it right in just one day. Good luck, Barbara. Ted Feb 15, 2012

I was pleasantly surprised when I got this press. It's less expensive than other Bodums but doesn't cut corners. It's easy to use, well designed, and a great everyday press. A wonderful item.
