I've never seen the non-glass French Press. That was my only complaint about using the French Press was after the first cup the remainder got cold!

Does the model that you posted keep the coffee warmer longer?

I hope they found a solution to that. We owned a coffee shop back then and had fresh roasted beans on hand to grind. My favorite was a Veracruz bean, dark roasted, just shy of French roasted.
This one doesn't seem to do that. We have had it about 6 months. We went through a couple of the non-burr grinder Cuisinarts before this one. They were subjected to the steam and had to be cleaned. They were considerably less expensive but only lasted a couple years each.

We buy beans from a Honduran company called Copan Trade. They are the growers / importers, and have a wholesale store in Houston. They sell it bulk in 5lb bags.

Well yes but I don't know how long. There are two of us and it's 48 ounces so it doesn't stay around long enough to say for sure. It is double walled and I guess I could do a heat test with water.

That's another thing. At home we have a Bunn that we use too. It has a preheated pot of water in it at all times. You poor a cold pot in and in about 4 minutes the brew is done. So I skip the filter and coffee - and pour into the press. Another 4 or 5 minutes it's done.

I guess I could pour it back into the Bunn carafe and think I tested that and there wasn't any difference for the amount of time the coffee was around.

I wouldn't recommend the Bunn as a water heater but being serious about coffee we have options. I do prefer press coffee over all others but sometimes the Bunn is handy and produces a good cup. Annie likes it so I'm happy either way.

It's on eBay and pricy at $60 bucks. Worth it to me. Think i bought direct from company online. You can read the reviews. One said hot for 4-5 hours. As for the negative reviews, all I can say is hand wash and dry after use (a given in our MH) and put the top on. It's a winner in my book.

Did you know you can get percolator filters that wrap the coffee grounds and give you easy clean up? And I like to watch coffee perc.

A local store here has another brand of these filters. Just get the wrap kind not a disc filter for the perc maker.

Needed more counter space so the counter automatic was replaced with a BD under cabinet auto with a thermal carafe. My wife doesn't like her coffee sitting on the heated pad so long.

When boondocking we use a french press.

2X. I like mine strong so the perk makes perfect coffee. The drip ones taste like tea to me. I like to buy Folgers or Maxwell house coffee and mix it with Colombian espresso. It I'll wake ya up in the morning.

I too installed the B&D under cabinet coffee maker, but had to remove it. The coffee was OK, it was all the steam and moisture the thing created that caused me to remove it. Water (condensed steam) literally dripped from the bottom of the cabinets and onto the counter top. Not a complete loss, I sold the unit in a yard sale. Glad yours is working out for you.

Our B & D had a shield that was below the counter and the coffee maker attached to the counter through this shield with standoffs above and below the shield. To the best of my knowledge ours does not cause the same problems but we will examine the unit next time I use it for making coffee.

We will normally go through 12 cups daily (drip) and will most likely put on an 8 cup chaser.

We like Maxwell House "Lite"

I can vouch for the Keurig customer service policy, one of mine, I have 2, quit working and I called, had not registered it of course, and they sent me a new one anyway and suggested I register this one. I am very happy with the brewer and the service.
