The Shin Bistro French Press Coffeemaker combines a simple design aesthetic with a traditional brewing system made from high quality materials to set it apart from the rest. Its carafe is made from ultra-light, heat-resistant borosilicate glass and it has a black, stay cool, non-slip rubber handle. The 3-part stainless steel plunger has a fine mesh filter, which allows for a premium extraction of your coffee�s aromatic oils and subtle flavors. A mesh filter allows this flavor to be delivered direct to your cup and not absorbed by a paper filter. Plus, no paper filter means no waste. The patented safety lid prevents the splashing of liquids while pressing. All parts are dishwasher safe. Available in 12-cup (48 oz), 8-cup (34 oz) and 3-cup (12 oz) models.
