Starbucks Barista French Press
(Denton, MD USA)
I found my Starbucks Barista French Press at a silent auction at Church! This Press differs from most in that the container is metal. The shape has a thermos-like effect, keeping the coffee warm longer than traditional glass french presses. The metal material makes the press easy to clean and Starbucks has designed the parts to be easy to disassemble and dishwasher safe.
The press is large enough to serve 3-4 people, yet small enough that you retain control over the strength of the coffee. I have had great results even with coffee that has been ground for drip machines. The rubber gasket on the filter keeps all grounds out of your drink!
I have had this press for a year now and have done away with one other press and a drip machine that simply could not compare. The other press did not have the gasket on the filter and I had to leave significant portions of my coffee undrunk … I thought that was the price for a having pressed coffee. The other part of the price for pressed coffee was the limited amount of coffee that could be produced and kept warm. No MORE!
The Starbucks Barista French Press is large enough for your toughest morning and protects you from grounds!! I had kept a drip machine on my counter for situations where I needed a large quantity of brew, but the Barista Press addresses that need with a similar quantity of joe that tastes much better.
I highly recommend this machine to anyone looking for a more intimate feel to their coffee-making experience. I have found visitors to my home enjoy the strength of the brew served here and remark every time on the flavor in coffee that they do not taste when using their home drip machines.
In short, I highly recommend the Starbucks Barista French Press!
