Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall Stainless Steel French Press

Okay, so I received the Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall Stainless Steel French Press and honestly, I had no idea on what it was or even on how to use it. I have never had coffee from a French Press before, but I am a coffee lover, so I guess this is going to be an interesting review. Honestly, i went from a typical coffee pot to a Keurig machine, because since I am the only coffee drinker, I felt that it didn't do justice, as I only drink about 1 cup in the morning, so making a pot for 10 cups was just ridiculous! So lets check out this Vintage Double Wall French Press!

So the french press seems pretty simple to use, you just add your favorite coffee grounds to the glass, then cover with boiling water, add wait for 5 minutes. Then you just push down on the rod, where the strainer is in the press, and the grounds are pushed to the bottom and they stay there while the coffee goes to the top. End the end, the coffee is pretty decent, (but mind you, you need to use coarse grounds, as fine grounds don't really do all that well as it will clog up the product,  so you are left with a nice pot of coffee) the coffee appeared very dark, and honestly it was strong, but not as strong that it would put hair on your chest. The instructions on the box indicate to add 1 tablespoon of your favorite coffee grounds per 4 ounces of water and to use coarser ground coffee as the finer grounds could possibly clog the system.
