Awesome French Press/Thermos
This french press makes a great cup of coffee in the morning and does a really good job of keeping my beverage warm for later! Things I love: - Screen for the press does a great job of keeping liquid separate from the grounds in the very bottom which means the coffee doesn't get stupid acidic when sitting in the mug for a few hours after pressing. - Easy to clean! Some coffee presses I've used can be hard to get the grounds out of the various parts. This press keeps them all in the bottom for easy disposal followed by a quick rinse and good to go. - Durable, I've been using mine for over a year now and it's held up pretty great to my abuse. If you're silly weight crazy (talking to the ultralight crowd here) you're probably not bringing coffee with you, but this may not be the product for you. Otherwise throw this in your crag pack and enjoy some hot coffee to warm up between climbs.

A New Morning Essential
Coffee is a morning must-have for me, and this makes it much easier to ensure that coffee is fresh. The press works well and keeps the grounds where they belong. The vacuum insulation also keeps the coffee warm all morning.

Fresh Press on my Commute!
This thing is awesome! The coffee tastes great and it's easy to use once you get the hang of it, which doesn't take long. My girlfriend kept stealing it because she loved it so much, so I ultimately bought one for her as well. Great product!

It's good for what it is
If you like freshly ground coffee, this works. It is a modified version of "cowboy coffee", meaning you will find some mud on the bottom of your cup. I bought this with it's companion hand grinder, and have been experimenting with amounts, courseness of grind, amount of water, optimal stir, etc. I would suggest you get a familiarity with what works for you before you take it out into the field. There are some peculiarities it would be good to be comfortable with ahead of time with both the grinder and the french press. I am planning to have these along for my upcoming 23 day trip in the GC. Will post any incremental comments after the trip if there is a reason to do so.

Works great, kind of annoying
Makes for really good coffee when you're in the backcountry. Don't purchase if you don't like the hassle of coffee grounds when you're camping, or don't have a proper place to dispose of them. Also, this mug creates a lot of pressure when trying to remove the inside part of the mug. It is quite annoying.

French press coffee on the go
I purchased this thing a couple weeks ago and I absolutely love it. It really gives you great coffee on the go, its way easy to use. It keeps your coffee nice and warm for at least a couple hours. It's no harder to clean than a regular french press. And it just seems to be very durable.

French Press in Disguise
Coffee continues to extract while in contact with water, so without a way to get rid of the grounds after some time, this java press appears to be more appropriately used as a french press in disguise before serving into a separate mug--unless you don't mind really strong, bitter coffee. Alternatively, this could be a nice mug for herbal teas like chamomile or chrysanthemum, but teas like greens or blacks will bitter when steeped for too long.

It is a French press. The water and coffee go in the cup itself. Yo then press (slowly) the inner sleeve down. Voilà! Hot fresh coffee. As a side note if you add too much water you will get coffee grounds in your beverage.
