Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall French Press Review

*I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.  This post contains affiliate links.*

I have spend the last month enjoying this fancy Francois et Mimi Vintage Double Wall French Press.  I have been very happy with the look and usefulness of this french press.  I used to be in catering and foodservice for many years and this is the type of higher end look I would use for catered events.  The polished stainless steel insulated pot is well made.  I am happy that there are not any gold adornments or wooden pieces.  Those things may look nice at first but very soon they always quickly wear out and make the vessel look worn out and ratty.  The pot holds 32 oz of hot water for coffee but can be used with less water and grounds.  I have typically been using 16-24 oz of water for my coffee pot and have been just fine with not having the water cool off.

 There are instructions on the box that this french press comes in.  I recommend, from years of experience, that after using a metal coffee pot to clean it and dry the pot and then put it in a plastic bag and store it in its box.  This just makes it safer from getting scratched and dinged.

to make a pot of coffee you simply boil your water and place the grounds in the pot.  Pour over the water and place the lid on the pot.  do not press the coffee press down yet.  Wait 5 minutes and then push the plunger down.  The coffee that pours out has a lovely crema on top reminiscent of an espresso.  Please watch my video of this press in action.

I think this Francois & Mimi French Press can be used for day to day use and to really show off when having friends and family over.  Thank you for reading and have a great day.
