Geoff Connerwrote a review of Snow Peak Titanium Cafe Press on May 11, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Yes, it's stupidly expensive but hey, coffee is important. I love this press - it's light, will take a beating and is easy enough to clean. It works just as well as any other french press but the durability and weight savings stand out. Tips for using a french press - 1. Use course grinds to prevent grinds from getting through and to draw out the coffee's oils. You will get a little residue regardless, that's how it goes with a press. 2. Measure your coffee out at home for the proper coffee to water ratio. I keep it in separate mini containers for each day. 3. Wet the grounds and let stand for a half a minute before filling up with water. 4. Let it steep for 2-4 minutes before pressing. 5. let the coffee cool down a little before drinking and then enjoy!
