User Review: Snow Peak Titanium Cafe Press
Price Paid: N/A
Caveat: this is not worth the money; you could buy a small family car for the price of one of these things in the UK. Having said that, how many opportunities does one get to feel like an outdoor aristocrat?
This was given to me as a gift last year and I really enjoy it. I have only used it once outdoors but I use it every day in the house. I would probably use it in the summer for two or more people but being English, I drink my body weight in tea every day, so carrying this just for elevenses would be pushing it.
The coffee press comes with a plastic mesh over the metal sieve. At first I didn't like using this flimsy thing and removed it, thinking it would only get in the way and that the grind was coarse enough to make it redundant. However, it actually seals the press better as well as filtering and making the sieve slide easier along the side walls, so it is back on with no problems at all.
As an aside, the Aeropress thing that I have has become quite useless: the rubber no longer slides easily, requiring a stupid amount of force. The coffee taste is a bit meh as well, compared to the press. Call me fickle.
