REVIEW: Zestkit Stainless Steel French Press Coffee Maker

I am reviewing a Zestkit Stainless Steel French Press Coffee Maker, 1 Liter 8 Cup, Double Wall Double Screen Food-Grade Stainless Steel French Coffee Press.

This kit contained a Stainless Steel Coffee Maker with plunger, 2 extra filter screens, measuring spoon with built in clip on the handle to close your coffee bag and instruction booklet.

This is a very nice little Coffee Maker, I was impressed! This holds 8 cups (64 ounces) of coffee and you can make just 1 cup or all 8 at once.

For me I had to play with the amounts to find the right strength for me. I preferred 2 whole scoops to 8 ounces of water for the perfect brew. To start, you remove the plunger and add preferred amount of ground coffee grounds, then add hot water. (1 teaspoon of ground coffee for every 4 ounces water.) Then replace the plunger without pressing handle down. Let it steep for 3-4 minutes. I like my coffee a bit stronger so I let mine steep for 4 minutes.Then slowly press plunger handle all the way down so the coffee is separated from the coffee grounds.

Then pour your cup of coffee right away. I also added cream and sweetener in my mug before pouring coffee.
My coffee was very smooth, no coffee grounds floating and worked perfectly. This is a great little French Coffee Press and I love it! Very easy to use. After using I dumped the coffee grounds and hand washed, turned over on a dish towel to dry. I love that this is Stainless Steel, looks very sleek, is very sturdy and will last.
