This great IKEA french press is great because it allows me to make my morning coffee in a really effortless manner. It looks so beautiful and while this is obviously not one of those really feature packed coffee makers it does get the job done in a quick manner. Brew Performance The brew from this and most any french coffee press is great because it produces a deep, rich black coffee that will put hair on your chin and goes great with a new day. Ease of Cleaning The IKEA french press is really easy to clean in that all you need to do is rinse out the internals and the metal press portion pulls out and can be easily rinsed off. Ease of Use A french press is great because all you need to do is follow the directions in the title to make your coffee for the day lol. Design It looks great on my counter and I would shove it into my car if I could. Durability It holds up well to the daily rigors of use but don't plan on having it overcome heights anytime soon.
