Like with wine tasting, coffee tasting is about finding the words to describe what you're reminded of as you sip and smell. Here are simple tasting steps:

  1. Don’t add anything to the coffee for now; just keep it black.
  2. Let the coffee cool down a bit after brewing. It’s harder to identify specific tastes when the coffee’s piping hot.
  3. If possible, compare multiple coffees at once because it's easier to taste comparatively.
  4. Answer these questions to begin to identify what you're tasting:


How does the consistency of the coffee feel as you sip? Perhaps like one of the following consistencies:


Do any of these words capture the flavors you taste? Choose all that apply. Then, try to dig deeper. If it’s fruity, which fruits best match that type of fruitiness?

Soooo good!

With my favorite coffee, ground fresh, and 4 minutes, PERFECT coffee! Easy to use, simple to clean - love the Palmpress!!!

My absolute favorite!

I use my Palmpress daily and couldn't be more in love with it. I find it so convenient, but, more importantly, fun to make a quick cup in the morning. Super easy to clean too. The fact that it is just as beautiful as anything else on my kitchen counter is such a lovely bonus. I have already gifted it to others and everyone has loved it!

Thank you, Luisa!
The best filter coffee I've had

I prefer to save my superlatives only for things that are truly excellent; this is one of those times where they're justified.

The Palm Press really makes the best filter coffee I've had: as rich as a well-made French press, but as clear as a perfectly-made pour-over. And it's completely effortless; with the proper grind, you just pour in water, wait 3-4 minutes, press into your cup, and you're done.

We even got a second one to bring with us on ski weekends, etc.

My only issue with it is the you do need to be attentive to screwing the two halves together so that you don't spritz hot coffee all over the counter. Other than that, this is a great product.

Thank you, Scott!

My Grandmother was gifted a Keurig a few years ago. For convenience and visitors it works just fine, but she had expressed to me that sometimes she just really wants one good cup of coffee. When I gifted her a palm press this Christmas she was so excited and immediately wanted a demo :) I was the trial run, then she easily made her own. Obviously delicious coffee and she could just throw the grounds on her compost pile!

Thank you, Dayna!
