I bought this press mainly because it is made in USA. Because of that, I expected good quality but was sorely disappointed. #1-it doesn't sit level on counter. One foot bent. #2- the filter on plunger is smaller than carafe and grounds get past and into coffee cup.
I was really excited about the red color-so pretty.
Long story short........I bought my previous brand again.
Most of the civilized world uses some version of a stove-top espresso coffeemaker. This one is easy to use, easy to clean and makes a tasty cup of bold frothy espresso. This is the Ovente 6 cup- but that translates into 6 wee wee thimble cups size. I pour the entire load into a nice giant big cup and a tablespoon of heavy cream and I am in espresso heaven. I have to remember to keep the stove fire on low, so I don't burn out the pot like in past mishaps. I have to get a battery to use the milk frother that came with, but value-wise this stove top machine is a great deal.
