This commonly used French press is nicer looking than your average drip machine, but it leaves a little to be desired. The plastic liner feels cheap, although the ball at the top of the plunger is really a joy to look at and plunge. Very low chance for spillage, but you're also not going to impress any design-nerd ladies.
It's no surprise this came from a store called Designbox. It looks like it'd fit perfectly into the cup holder of a Porsche. The hypnotizing, screen-printed pattern on the side might turn into a sailboat if you stare at it long enough. Pressing down the interior chamber onto the grinds feels like you're pressing a stick of butter into a hot frying pan -- it's really smooth, and, also, there's a tiny bit of splash-back. When pouring the coffee, there was some spillage, but this thing is so good looking that if you spilled coffee on yourself on the way to a job interview, you might still get the job.
