Who is this product for?
Brewing coffee using a French press takes a little bit longer than brewing coffee using a Tassimo or a Nespresso machine.

It reduces the risk of burns and other injuries with a cool-touch handle, so inexperienced French press users have nothing to fear. Finally, the Coffee Gator French Press is double-layered and spring-loaded, which ensures no sneaky pieces of sediment make it to your cup and ruin the texture of your coffee.
