Bob,

I use the Bodum Columbia 8-Cup Stainless-Steel Thermal Press Pot. It works just like any other press pot but, it keeps coffee hot a long time. I can not taste much if any difference in taste after coffee sits in it quite a while.

Thanks Jim. I'm thinking this might be one of my next purchases.

A colleague of mine brought in a French Press set up to work last week so I could try it out. Needless to say is that I'm sold.

Just went and go my first FP. Now I can store my Keurig for guests use the FP for my daily use. Now I need to find some beans I like.

I would also give Sweet Marias a shot for samplers if you're roasting or UncleBeanz if you're ordering it roasted. ( I personally love Unclebeanz Negrita)
Maybe mine's just worn out, but I get a ton of dust from my Cuisinart. It's drinkable, but have to nearly decant the stuff to keep from getting more mud than I can stand.

I love my french press for a really deeply rich cup of coffee. Coarse ground is the way to go.

I thought I had broken mine this morning. Dropped in the sink while cleaning. Luckily it didn't crack.
