Another rare find of a discontinued product - Hario's CafePresso insulated glass press pot. Hario discontinued this press and then reintroduced it for a short while. It might be gone by Christmas!
I was very fortunate to get this in two sizes; I even bought two of each because I knew Hario was going to be discontinuing them. They are slightly on the fragile side, but they brew a fantastic press pot of coffee, and much like the Espro Press, do a great job in slowing down the temperature cooldown while the brew takes place: more stable water temperatures during brewing equal a better tasting cup.
Hario's filter is much better than Bodum's standard models: the Hario press pot filter is made up of a finer mesh and does a better job of keeping the sediment out of your cup (though there still will be sediment).
If you're into press pot coffee, this is a unique, and soon-to-be-gone item.
