I have multiple Bodum presses from plastic to glass to double walled plastic mugs (my actual favorite) and have never had issues with them. I like my travel mug because it's great to take with me on trips. Use a portable grinder, get almost boiling water and away I go.

I understand people's like the Espro. To me it's not worth it.

 
The world needs more outstanding coffee.

+3 on Espro press. It's great! Easy to use and maintain.

 
Did you know...? Dark roast coffees actually have less caffeine than lighter roasts due to the fact that the process of roasting burns off caffeine.

I'm really looking forward to the medium sized Espro press.  There are so many times i want to share a cup with someone at work, but I rarely want to make the effort to run a second press on my single for them to enjoy!

I was excited about the Espo-Press, but $80 for an 8oz on Amazon.com is a little rich for me right now.  Nonetheless, I do have plans to purchase a SS one and will keep this in the back of my mind. My glass bodum french press does the trick meanwhile.

I agree the cost is high. Have you looked at CCS? I got mine from them...maybe 5 mos ago...for $69. Maybe the price has gone up? Or maybe you just haven't found the right retailer. Of course, $70 is a little much too, but for me it's worth it. The quality of the coffee from the Espro is noticeably better than my Bodum.

CCS is what? Sorry, not familiar with the acronym.  I'm assuming the quality is better because of stainless steel's ability to keep a steady and consistent temperature.
