French press brewing has gained popularity in recent years as a way of extracting maximum flavor from coffee. Using water that is just below boiling temperature and a self controlled brewing time, a French press allows you to control how strong or light your coffee comes out. This elegant glass and stainless steel carafe will look great while serving coffee to friends or just enjoying a quiet cup on your own. The glass carafe is made of durable, heat-resistant borosilicate glass and brews 1 liter (approx 34 oz.).
