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.

  • Quality - We guarantee that this coffee press will get the job done the way you want it. Easy to use and control the strength of your coffee, you'll get a consistent cup everytime.
  • Clean-Up - Make sure to thoroughly clean your coffee filter as a lot of coffee grounds tend to get stuck in cracks and crevasses over time.

This press will make great coffee with no extra frills.

How many ounces of coffee can this make?
A shopper on Mar 27, 2014
Best Answer: We have the yields for some of the presses below, and though this Brazil French Press in Shatterproof Glass is not included, I'd expect your yield to be about 26-29 ounces.

I have the coffee press, but not sure how to you it. So my question is: How do you use it to get the best results?
A shopper on Aug 25, 2014
Best Answer: Make sure you use quality coffee. Coffee must be coarsely ground! I find one scoop for each cup works well, about 5 scoops for a full press. Bring water to a boil, and let stand for about 5 minutes. Boiling water will burn the coffee and ruin the taste. Pour over grounds , stir lightly, cover, and wait a few minutes before pressing. Enjoy!

Hey guys,
I am wondering whether there is such a big difference between the Hario Mizudashi and, say, a French Press cold brew dripped through a paper filter thereafter (without another batch of powder in the filter, of course :D)!?
What I imagine: While the Hario Mizudashi filter is permeable to bigger molecules than a paper filter it may have a fuller body whereas the FP + filter method may give a cleaner yet stronger cup due to direct contact to the coffee ground...but maybe this is all too much theory.
Finally, I am simply wondering whether another brewer is worth the extra money and space or I could achieve similar results without it.

thanks a lot!

PS: Since I am in Japan I don't have my FP at hand to try out...

Best Answer: Generally, all immersion brew methods will have similar tasting results! Many people will cold brew in a French press, but there are a few benefits to a dedicated cold brewer like the Mizudashi (especially if you plan to do it often):

1) Removable filter for easier clean up
2) Narrow profile fits in refrigerator door
3) The lid locks on without the filter so you can also use it for serving/storage

Hope this helps!

What does shatterproof glass mean?
FourCats on Apr 19, 2015
Best Answer: More accurately, it is shatter resistant. The "glass" is actually a type of plastic. You can read more about it here:
