Review: OXO Good Grips French Press Coffee Maker
Like all OXO products, the OXO Good Grips French Press Coffee Maker has a simple yet elegant design and is easy to use. This French press is no exception – and makes great-tasting coffee. My short video review goes over how to use it.
In a nutshell:
* Simple 3-piece design
* Clean-up is fast and easy
* No filters are used – filters remove much of the oil, the most favorable part of the coffee. That’s one of the main reasons coffee aficionados prefer the French press over drip coffee machines
* Ideal brew (good and strong) takes 4 minutes of steeping time
Why use a French press?
* For me the main advantage is that I can time how long the coffee grounds steep in the water. For example, if I want a mild cup, I let the coffee steep for around 90 seconds. For a strong, robust brew, I let it steep for the recommended four minutes.
The OXO Good Grips French Press Coffee Maker gets two thumbs up.
