I have never used a french press before. However, the Alabama Tornado made me realized that having a non-electric coffee maker is something preppers should have.
My in-laws used a lot of gasoline for the sole purpose of having the coffee maker running. Having a french press or a campfire percolator would allow them to have there coffee without the noisy generator.
When Kona asked me to review their french press I was grateful for the opportunity. (they supplied the press, but they aren’t paying for the review).
I found the press to be very simple, and I liked how the press is made of wire screen, and is replaceable (it came with extra, but I think you could also make it).
What I did not like was the fact that the container was glass. While this might not be an issue for normal usage, this isn’t something you would take camping.
Since I don’t drink coffee, I tried tea. After drinking french press tea, I went and bought loose tea. I did this because I thought it tasted much better than what comes out of my “Mr. T” tea machine.
Add in my video on adding a touch of baking soda to sweet tea and you have the makings of some really great sweet tea.
