Topic: coffee maker for young guy in Iraq (11 msgs / 267 lines)
1) From: gin
one of my co-workers has fallen in love with my fresh roasted coffee and wants to share it with his son who just left for war...
he wants to send hi a French press but I think sending a glass press is really not a good idea.
I need so me help from you guys who have been, what you use, do you want coffee ground and the whole nine yards.
Dennis are you there?

well you can get small acrylic french presses but they are probably no
sturdier than glass.  a whirly grinder and press with a nylon screen is
probably a good bet, or have them hunt down a Zass like Dennis did ;)

I have a small, 3-tasse "unbreakable" Bodum. It's very durable, and 
makes a good cup of coffee.

I have my Turkish Zass and a French Press mug - and a 220v water
heater that heats FAST...  Has been a good setup so far.

Agree glass press pot beaker not a good idea. Bodum has a number of models
with "unbreakable" polycarbonate beakers and also all stainless steel
model(s). I've had a poly beaker press for travel a number of years but
haven't really tested just how "unbreakable" it really is. I have had 3
normal beakers break at home during that time frame. (Actually one of those
breakings wasn't at home but at Alchemist's during PNWG II after the
cupping:-)

I have a Bodum with polycarbonate carafe for travel-- 
ultralightweight, looks like the glass Chambord and tastes neutral.

8) From: Sean Cary
Awhile ago I posted a link to a water bottle that had a press - made
32oz of coffee...  It is a top for Nalgene bottle, runs about 15-20...
 I figured it was too much to make at one shot - unless you are making
some for others as well.  Since I am not, I went the Mug Press route.

The Poly FP or once again the AP are the first things that come to
mind... 
One more thing to think about IF you can get one is the swiss gold one
cup 
Makes a pretty good cuppa if I say so myself...
IMO and as always YMMV

10) From: Michael Wascher
I use a stainless steel press by Frieling, a gift from before I found Sweet
Maria's (Jean knows better now).
I also have a single cup press that I found in Australia. It's plastic with
a nylon mess filter. Works well, but too small.
