ENJOY COFFEE ON THE GO
~ What ~
Weighing only 12.8 ounces without water, this hand-held air press coffee maker produces 2 cups of joe in about 4 minutes. Measuring 10.6 inches long by 2.8 inches in diameter and able to hold 13 ounces of liquid, it is compact and easy to assemble and use. It comes with a double-walled stainless steel shaft with a rubber base, plunger, self-locking mechanism, leak-proof lid, long red stirring spoon, and instructions in a gift box ready for giving.
~ Why ~
Our son loves to have his specialty coffee but hates waiting for a pot to brew so enjoys his coffee on the run. Usually using a French Press coffee maker, he can take this small unit to work, in the car, while camping, or anywhere he has access to hot water. In testing the unit, I found it to easy use by adding freshly grounded coffee beans in the main shaft, pouring in boiling water, and minutes later slowly pressing the plunging unit down, producing a fresh cup of coffee. The long plastic spoon is a nice touch for those who use additives in their coffee. Cleaning it is a breeze as the mesh filter unscrews and the chamber can be accessed.
~ Why Not ~
Some may not like making coffee, especially having to wait for boiling water. Others may wish it could contain more than 13 ounces of brewed coffee. The instructions state to pour water 3 cm lower than the water line, but most Americans think in inches (not the metric system).
~ Wish ~
I wish the unit came in more colors as it would be more noticeable. Adding a top carrying strap would be thoughtful. I wish the lid flap opening clicked shut tightly and the instructions recommended how much grounds to use.
~ Want ~
If you are looking for a durable French press 2-cup coffee maker that can be taken with you wherever you go, this is a keeper that will last a long time.
