Topic: new swiss gold french press (6 lines)
1) From: akkmom
Hey all - I just bought one of these, too.  I got the cows, incidentally, thought it was cute - I didn't have any roasted coffee ready, since I was out of town for the week (my sister's wedding - took her a batch of newly roasted Moki's kona from SM as part of her wedding gift) - the french press came with a free sample of roasted coffee.  Not the worst, I have to say - too dark for my taste and the smell was reminiscent of Starbucks (why are they everywhere - I understand it in central PA, where I live, they don't know any better - but you'd think they'd know better in Sonoma).  I used the same grind as I use for my drip coffee and didn't have any trouble with pushing down the plunger.  I think it's decent to drink because of the brewing method, rather than the coffee, but I was pleasantly surprised.
