If you have never drank coffee from a french press, most likely you will really like it. I can't count the number of people that he has shared his coffee with that has changed over to a french press. Doesn't seem to matter what their favorite coffee is, put it in a french press and it tastes better.
(I can't vouch for this since I think all coffee tastes like dirt water.)
Anyway, since we live in the middle of nowhere, it has fallen upon my shoulders for a handful of Ross's coworkers to buy one for them for the cheapest deal.
The Progressive 4 cup coffee press was the cheapest to buy plus shipping from Kitchen Collection. This is as of last year, haven't searched since then.
My hubby had the Progressive one for 2 years and then it broke when it took a tumble from the counter. He bought a bodum "the original" French Press which is about $10 more expensive, but he feels it is better made and you can buy replacement parts. The one drawback is that you can't get a programmable one since that would be impossible, but he considers the taste worth the time.
Why do I like this? I don't have to buy coffee filters ever again.
