It is made by Hario and looks like no other press pot I've seen before. I like that (it appears) there isn't a single bit of plastic in it, it is transparent, and double-walled for insulation. I think I saw on the forums that there was an older double-walled Hario that got discontinued and that was well liked.
Anyway, I want to know if anyone has any experience with this, or if you could foresee any problems with its design before I go ahead and get it! Also, can anyone comment on the quality of Hario's glass?
So critique away (and please offer alternatives if you can).
Maybe we should start an official French Press Power Rankings thread or something.

Since I received my first Espro (1 litre) April 2012 I have been convinced that no other presses measure up. I did how ever continue using a couple Bodum presses when making between 9 to 20 ounces of coffee.
That totally changed since I have my new medium (18 ounce) Espro. I usually use it four times a day to make coffee for my wife and my self. If I am slow to get the Espro cleaned and use a single filter press pot instead, my wife will comment "You didn't use the Espro did you? I really prefer when you do."
I received my Kickstarter medium Espro in Aug. so production units of the size you would need should be easily available.
The medium Espro has two fill lines on the inner wall. I use the top (18 oz.) line, but the lower line should be just about what you want if you want to only weigh beans and not water each time.
