Trying to minimize our coffee prep area clutter, I bought a Palmpress. I hoped it would give our family a single coffee prep method we could all be happy with. Bingo! Love it. Gone are the cone filters, the s/s pour-over cone, the Bialetti stovetop espresso maker, the french press. Palmpress produces a cuppa to suit all our tastes and using it is a pleasure. It's fast, simple, and yields delicious coffee by the cup, easily tweaked for each individual the cup is being made for. And oh my, the ease of cleanup -- dump, rinse and go! Husband skeptical at first but now it's the only way he makes his coffee. Our kiddo with three years' snooty barista training reluctantly tried the Palmpress, then insisted on getting one of their own. Portability is a major plus. The facts that 1) the lid gets twisted on to the Palmpress cone during brewing, and 2) the Palmpress sits on the counter not on the mug during brewing mean that there's little danger of spills (like when your boat heels over). Palmpress is exquisitely engineered, works beautifully, and makes a fantastic cuppa. Love, love, love!!!
