Coffee presses make richly flavored drinks from ground coffee and brew faster than other types of coffee makers. Each press consists of a carafe, a lid, and a plunger. This simple assembly makes it easy for anyone to brew coffee. Staples® carries a wide selection of coffee presses and other types of coffee makers to suit your brewing needs.

Choose From Different Types of Coffee Presses
The traditional French press looks like a jug with a lid. It has a carafe made of glass or porcelain. Compared to such traditional non-insulated models, thermal presses and percolators keep brewed coffee hot for longer. These have lined or double-walled carafes made of stainless steel. Choose an electric press if you want a unit that can boil water inside its carafe. Besides these countertop models, there are smaller travel French presses. These mug-sized coffee makers can fit into cup holders and are portable enough to take along on hikes or camping trips. Travel presses can only brew enough coffee for one person at a time. Desktop models can make multiple cups at the same time. Manufacturers state coffee press volume in 4-ounce cups. The most common capacities are 3, 4, 8, and 12 cups.

Consider Build Materials When Comparing Coffee Presses
The most common materials used for French presses are stainless steel, glass, and plastic. Glass carafes look stylish and some prefer the taste of coffee brewed with them. Another reason to choose them is to enjoy watching the plunger move and relishing the brewing process. Glass carafes are, however, fragile. Some manufacturers make them sturdier with protective metal frames and feet. Plastic carafes are more affordable and durable. They come in a wide range of bright colors and can also be transparent. If you opt for this type of press, make sure it is made of BPA-free plastic. Stainless steel carafes look stylish, are unbreakable, and retain heat longer.

What Kinds of Filters Do Coffee Presses Use?
Popular filter materials include stainless steel wire, nylon mesh, and cloth. Paper filters are less common but have certain advantages. They are disposable and preferred by people who regularly brew different types of coffee grounds. Filters made of stainless steel, mesh, and cloth are reusable and washable. They may retain residues if not properly washed. Metal filters last longer than nylon and cloth ones but are prone to bending and rusting.

Can You Brew Tea With a Coffee Press?
Yes. You can use a French press as a tea infuser if you like brewing loose tea leaves. As with coffee, you should decant the prepared tea into another container to prevent it from going bitter when left standing.

What Is the Difference Between Coffee Presses and AeroPress® Coffee Makers?
While both devices use similar brewing methods, AeroPress requires a fine coffee grind while French presses use a coarse grind. It also makes coffee faster than a coffee press but typically has a smaller capacity. While AeroPress extracts flavor from coffee with air pressure, a press does so with heat.
