French Press: Durable Thermos makes excellent coffee, keeps it hot. Lean-N-Damn-Good-Cup-of-Joe

Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:makes great coffee, keeps it hot for over 2 hours

Cons:sometimes fine grounds in the coffee cup

The Bottom Line: The Thermos-Nissan French Press is durable, easy to clean, makes excellent coffee which it keeps warm for over 2 hours.


The Nissan Thermos French Press is easy to use, keeps coffee warm for nearly 3 hours, is durable, can travel with you if needed, and doesn’t affect taste of coffee (no metallic taste).

When I first purchased it, I was concerned that there might be a metallic taste.  I’ve used some coffee travel mugs that leave a slight plastic taste.  This is not the case.  I’m picky about coffee and sensitive to its flavors, enjoying at times the accents, aromas, after-taste (the slight citrus after-tastes of a Somalian dark roast I use is my every-day favorite).

Serious coffee drinkers know the best way to make coffee is in a French Press.  The best glass French Presses while capable of making excellent coffee are expensive and fragile.  They are easy to chip, crack and don’t keep your coffee warm beyond around 20 minutes (30 if you aren’t too picky, but then you’re drinking luke-warm brew).

Thermos Nissan Coffee Press hold 34 Ounces of coffee in an insulated stainless steel container.  The top has a replaceable screen filter and plunger.  It is NOT dishwasher safe but hand cleaning is easy.

I’ve used this brand, this model for over 4 years, several times per day, every day.  I freshly grind my own coffee and add water that’s been heated to just under boiling (220 degrees) making an excellent cup of coffee that keeps its flavor and boldness AND stays warm for up to 3 hours.  And because it’s not on a heat plate—and in an insulated container it tastes almost as fresh as when it was first made for over 2 hours.  Far better tasting than any drip coffee maker.

Sometimes because coffee grinds can stick (because of moistness or static electricity) to the very top of the unit) you will occasionally get small grinds in your coffee cup.   Most will sink and stay in the bottom of the cub.  Those that float at the top you can easily remove.  This happens about one-third the time.  You can avoid this almost all the time with a little extra effort.  If you only fill the Thermos unit half way with water and then put the plunger top on, pushing down slightly on the plunger and lifting the cap up a little bit, you’ll have room to pour the hot water on top of the screen/plunger unit and let the water go through it to grounds.  Wait 4 to 5 minutes and plunge it down as you normally would.

Also: Sometimes when you get to the very bottom of the pot, you get some dark gritty sludge.  These are both user errors.  They are easy to deal with.  

The fine screen is part of the already assembled top unit.  You can and should occasionally unscrew the assembly (easy to do by hand) and carefully clean the screen (without soap).  It’s fragile and over time will begin to break down.  You can order replacement screens too.

Highly recommended.
