Review for Francois et Mimi 50oz Glass French Press

               Francois et Mimi                

        50oz Glass French Press         

My 1st review for Tomoson is this beautiful Glass French Press from L&Z Inc. I was very excited to see I was approved for this. Not only am I a really big coffee lover, but I have never had the experience of using a french press. So here was my opportunity.

So unfortunately, the 1st time I received the product it had been damaged by the delivering party. I was very disappointed. Thank goodness the wonderful people who work at L&Z Inc. replaced it immediately after I had gotten in contact with them. They were very prompt and surprisingly I received it 2 days later, and with a lot more bubblewrap!!!

Here is my new #GlassFrenchPress:

Now, like I said this is my first time using a French Press, so I had to do some research! Thank you Google and Folgers for your assistance in this matter.


1. Make sure all parts are clean. Then add hot water to both coffee cup and french press as we will use hot, not boiling water. Boiling water could cause the glass to break. This will allow the coffee to stay warmer longer, which is the same idea as freezing beer glasses so the glasses keep beer colder longer.

2. Heat water to fairly HOT temperature, remember not to make it boiling. Proceed to pour out water that is already keeping press warm. 

3. Add 8 tbsp. of any type of ground coffee to the bottom of the press. Pour in HOT water up to 1 inch from the top, the metal piece on this one is a great marker. 

Stir with a plastic spoon as to not crack the glass or break it ( or just be very careful, I used a long metal spoon, but went slowly and carefully when stirring).

4. Place lid with plunger piece on top, DO NOT PUSH YET! Let it stand 5 or so minutes. 

5. Slowly push plunger down, all grounds will be pushed to bottom at this point and coffee minus grounds will be above the mesh filter. 

6. ENJOY!!!

Now, you know how the saying goes " Things taste better if you make it yourself" I now know this to be true. The Francois et Mimi 50 oz Glass French Press worked wonders, not only did I not rely on  my keurig or Starbucks to make my coffee, I did it myself. I have to say this is one of the best and strongest cups of coffee I've had recently, not including Espresso. I was pleasantly surprised at this easy process. 

I received this product courtesy of Tomoson.com and L&Z Inc. for test and review purposes.
