Review - Coffee Gator French Press Keeps Coffee Hotter for Longer

Oh now, this French Press from Coffee Gator is quite marvelous - Why? Well, not only does it look good but the main thing is it really does keep coffee hotter for longer than the usual glass jug of a French Press.

If tea is your thing (as it is with me) you can also use it for tea. The manufactures say this French Press keeps coffee piping hot for up to 32 minutes longer so I tested it 😉 and I can confirm that this is pretty much true.

Tried and Tested:
I filled a regular Glass Jar type French press (from a big top brand name) with just off boiling water and at the same time I filled the Stainless Steel Coffee Gator French press.

Stainless Steel French Press

To keep it fair both were filled to the max and both left for 30 minutes and then I checked the temperature with my Thermapen here's what it read:
Coffee Gator Stainless Steel French Press 77.7°C Pretty impressive ah?
Regular Glass French Press 59.6°C

So I say it's true; the Coffee Gator really does keep coffee hotter for longer!

45 minutes later: 
Coffee Gator Stainless Steel French Press 74.5°C
Regular Glass French Press 53.0°C

The pot is made from surgical-grade, 304 stainless steel and the walls are 33.33% thicker than other metal products on the market. (0.8mm compared to the usual 0.6mm) and 20.54% heavier.

Meanwhile, the double-layer mesh filter does a great job of insuring a clean cup of coffee without bits. I love the easy pour spout too; after all no spillages can only be a good thing.

The jug is a good size too - up to 6 cups of coffee. Available from Amazon at £39.99 but be sure to check it out and buy from Coffee Gator as I've seen someone trying to sell these for far more but £39.99 is the RRP so I'm just saying; don't pay overboard. Oh and by the way I love the cute little storage jar that comes with it.

Disclosure: I was sent the French Press from Coffee Gator to review.  All thoughts and opinions are my own and as always I was not required to write anything positive.
