This is a french press that is easy to clean. It's the same french press process except for the dreaded cleaning part. With the grounds lifter, you just lift the handle and out come the grounds so you can compost or toss. It also acts as a squeegee, cleaning the glass sides of the press. Easy peasy and less water waste making it a more eco-friendly way to make french press drinks. This 8-cup french press is sharing size (or a second cup of coffee) and made of borosilicate glass for durability and peace of mind. This is the best french press for coffee, decaf, and yerba maté.
