Disclosure: I received the Cozyna Ede Stainless Steel French Press for free in order to conduct my review. That does not however change my opinion of the product.
I am not one of those wake up and drink coffee drinkers, not because I am not a fan, but more so because I rarely make it out of bed with enough time to do anything other than run out the door. Yes, I am one of those morning people.. the "Oh Crap it's morning kind of people", however I do like coffee. Typically, by time I am up for a cup of coffee the normal morning coffee drinkers are done for the day so I like to be able to brew myself a single cup. I also like to concentrate it very much so that when I dilute it with my chocolate milk and ice, I can pretend that I am having an Iced Mocha and save myself a ton of money.
Now that you know why I drink coffee let's get into the quality of the Cozyna Ede Stainless Steel French Press. I have seen and used French Presses prior to receiving the Cozyna French Press, the one thing I immediately noticed about this one in particular is the thickness of the beaker. It is almost as thick as a lab grade beaker which with my personal science experience says that it's stronger than a thinner glass would be and will hold up to my less than gentle usage. I also found that the feet of the stainless steel frame were extremely sturdy so it sits solid on the counter with no accidental tips due to wobbly legs. That doesn't mean I won't knock the thing over, but at least it won't do it on it's own.
I like that the plunging filter is air tight as well, it makes it less likely that hot steaming coffee will escape from somewhere other than the intended pour spout and burn me. Which is always a possibility when it comes to me dealing with hot things, and no one likes coffee burns. The filter also did an extraordinary job of concentrating down the grounds so you can get every drop of liquid out. Almost too good as it was a little difficult to get the grounds out of the bottom after I literally had to add water back to pull them out, which was fine as they immediately moved their way over into my compost pile, so I will have some well caffeinated worms, maybe they will work faster? Anyways another topic to explore another day.
Overall, I love the Cozyna Ede Stainless Steel French Press and for the price you are definitely getting a surprisingly high quality Press. Don't believe me order one and try it out! For the price of less than a half dozen cups of coffee at Starbucks you can make your own at home!
