Used my beautiful French Press for the first time this morning. Sad thing is, I'm not happy with it. It leaves too many grounds in the coffee after it's plunged and when I poured it, it drips. Annoyed! And I can't take it back because I don't have the box or my return slip to take it back. I'll have to use it a couple more times to make sure it's going to work. But it was nice to have hot fresh coffee this morning!
