For review, I was sent the Lake House French Press Coffee Maker*. I use a french press nearly every day when I’m at home to make a cup of coffee, and it’s nice to have more than one press! With my recent move from my childhood home to the big city, I was thankful to have accumulated enough presses for both my mom and I to have a couple each.
As for this french press specifically, it’s not unlike others I’ve used in the past. However, it has a few key features that I really like, features that make this my favorite french press and they one that will be living with me (once I get it from back home, it got forgotten in the kitchen!). I like that overall sleek design of the packaging. The handle is made of plastic, so it doesn’t get hot when you add boiling water to it. The handle also has nice clearance between where your knuckles will be and the hot coffee, more clearance than other coffee presses I’ve used. The feet are stable and keep the coffee press level, an issue I had with another brand before.
I have the hardest time reviewing things like this, simply because I’m not totally sure what I want to talk about/ what I should mention. For products like these, it seems like a simple “it works as it should without issues and I recommend it” would suffice at times.
Overall, I like this Lake House French Coffee Press. It does the trick while looking stylish. I have no complaints and have used it a couple times now. My Mom also reports that she has had no issues, and used it just this morning (considering my leaving it behind). I would recommend this french press to anyone who is in the market for one.
Interested in tying this press for yourself?

For review, I was sent the Brillante™ Manual Coffee Grinder*. This grinder is made of ceramic, with the outside of the grinder being made of stainless steel/ aluminum/some sort of metal. Capable of making two persons worth of grounds in a couple of minutes, doing so silently, this grinder is perfect for a number of lifestyle situations.
I was excited (I need to come up with another word!) to try this grinder. I’ve used many electric grinders in the past, but I like that idea of a manual grinder for its silence and manual-ness. I like to do things myself. I was pleased to learn (after I’d made one batch of grounds) that this grinder has setting to adjust the grind size. Perfect for use with espresso machines, french presses, coffee makers, and any other method you may use.
I used this grinder to grind myself up a single serving of coffee grounds for use with my french press. I’m looking forward to using this grinder when I move next month and begin to live with roommates. I’ll likely be making my morning coffee in my office, and it will be nice to not have to worry about the loud electric grinder waking my wall-mates.
Overall, I’ve really enjoyed using and trying out this grinder. I’d like to try it with pepper and other spices next, as recommended by Brillante™. This grinder will certainly continue to be used by me. I’ll have to give the other ground size settings a try, too.
