aerolatte French Press/Cafetiere : Perfect size for one person

This is a stylish and well designed french press. I have the 7 cup model and you can make enough coffee to fill three full mugs. The jug slots in and out of its aluminium frame and is dishwasher friendly (we get on very well). The spindle unscrews allowing the filter to be cleaned properly and there is also a secondary filter in the lid. It pours very well and i’ve had a perfect coffee every time. I normally use an aeropress when making coffee for just myself but this is perfect when making coffee for both myself and my better half. You do sometimes get a tiny (and i do mean tiny) trace of residue in the bottom of the mug but i’ve never used a french press where this doesn’t happen. It arrives with a plastic spoon and 1½ scoops per mug is just right. Overall, this functions very well and it looks good too.

Easy to use, easy to clean, good capacity.

Great design and quality and makes a perfect cup of coffee.

I have an aerolatte stove top coffee pot in the italian style so it seemed only natural to plump for a french press from them too. Much-better suited to making coffee for a few guests, this certainly looks the part with a nice stainless steel lid and construction. Crucially, the filter is held in place by a decent spring (this was the problem with my previous cafetière) and so you’re less likely to suffer from coffee grounds in your cup. There’s another guard at the pouring lip to help prevent any coffee grounds getting through. I don’t know how big a ‘cup’ of coffee you like but don’t be confused by this rather ancient method of measuring the size here. It makes about 4 mugs of coffee when full.

I like the appearance of this cafetiere and no matter how much coffee you put in the jug the plunger always goesdown easily – unlike some other cafetieres where it feels like the bottom is going to give way. On the minus side the ‘grill’ for the spout does seem to stop the froth on the top from coming out unitl the vey last cup is poured – but it does stop any loose grounds from coming through – and the spout does dribble – although i find this happens on most cafetieres.

Just got this 8 cup cafetiere and am really impressed. Really nice looking cafetiere. Instructions were easy to understand and they make it easy with an included coffee scoop. The other good thing about this particular product is that there are measurement markings on the main glass pot which makes it simple to know how many scoops of coffee to put int, to how much water. This particular cafetiere also has an extra mesh filter at the top which means absolutely no nasty grindy bits of coffee in my drink. The main glass pot is easy to take out and wash. Overall, as i say, impressed and looking forward to lots of good coffee.

I liked this aerolatte cafetière very much. It looks stylish, and does it’s job very well. With a generous 7 cup capacity (i think other sizes are available), it’s can cater for a dinner party. Has no problems in catching the coffee – no coffee grounds have ended up in my cup.

This isn’t as nice as the bodum cafetieres. The leaflet and measuring spoon is included. What i did notice on mine is that the plunger mesh and frame is crooked, it’s not level. Also, the mesh is fixed in such ways as to render therein a small gap from which could issue forth large ground particles of some such coffee such as might be used when making coffee, forsooth this has happened in the past, even with the bodums, but it is particularly pronounced in this here example. In actual practise (practice?) it is fine. The coffee tastes as good as it does with any other cafetiere.

The simple instruction of the spoon & level on the outside, helps me to not over do the strength of my coffee.

I really like this, the build quality is good, metal and plastic frame/handle, glass “beaker”, metal and plastic plunger and filteration. The filter grill works fine, i have used it a number of times this morning and it has not “leaked” grounds into my drink, i am not sure what other reviewers are doing different to me to get different results but i will report back in a few months if i have noticed any difference, i dont drink right to the finish of the cafetiere pot as it is mainly grounds and dregs at the bottom anyhow. If you have a good ground, or grind your own beans well enough, then stir it, let it stand and then use the plunger on the beverage it does not result in any grounds getting into your cup, or so i have found. There are markings along the side which mark out the number of cups, this will of course be a rough guide as some users will have different size mugs or cups to others. There is a small inlay card detailing the product included and a plastic scoop for coffee grounds. I really like these, though i have lost more than one to breakages either in a dishwasher or in the wash basin when other things are placed in against it, so glad to have this though as it is one of the better ways to enjoy coffee, especially if you appreciate black coffee.

A very well made and stylish cafetiere with a very fine stainless steel micro filter that keeps the coffee grounds in the cafetiere, where they should be, and not spoiling the cup of coffee. It comes with a measuring spoon and water guide on the glass jug, which when followed makes a perfect cup of coffee.

It was easy to use and easy to clean. The instructions were clear and simple.

Good quality, easy to clean i now have fresh coffee everyday.

Enjoyed using this cafetiere more than previous purchases as it seemed more secure when plunging the handle down and it didn’t wobble. It was also a smoother movement and no friction.

My wife doesn’t drink coffee, so at the weekends, this small cafetiere is perfect for me, and makes two mugs, which is just fine. And doesn’t use too much expensive coffee either. Afterwards it’s easy to rinse and pop straight into the dishwasher, the glass is easy to remove, and the plunger/filters work perfectly, just as long as you’re not too aggressive. All in all, i see it as a nice treat at the weekend.

This is a fantastic quality french press – i’ve only ever had cheap plastic versions and the filters never seem to be too great and always lets the coffee grains in but this has a very clever double filter and so far it’s been perfect – no granules have escaped and it is excellent quality. It’s made of glass and is removable and is dishwasher safe – i’m very impressed so far and don’t know how i ever put up with anything less. I bought a replacement glass insert as well from john lewis just in case and this fits so it seems to be a standard size as well. Perfect size, perfect coffee.

Makes good coffee althought i prefer using the french press to make tea. Its also able to froth milk when i feel like making a latte.

Perfect size for one person:) i’ve been using it for a couple weeks now and have no complaints – it’s actually easier to clean than my last one.

This cafetiere is advertised at 7 cup but to me it’s very small. It only holds 700ml of water, taking into account you loose some coffee which remains in the grounds at this means you cup of coffee is no more than 100ml. An expresso may only be 40ml but i think you can really only make these in a pressured coffee machine, a caftiere produces coffee like a filter, so if you like a flat white in a mug you’re not going to get more than 3 persons worth from this with a good top up of milk. To put this into perspective a can of soda drink is 330ml. The design is pretty classic, a glass holder, with a metal frame and plastic handle. The internal part is 2 metal circles a fine mess to stop the coffee grounds coming through, attached to a metal rod. This comes apart for cleaning. The lid is plastic pretending to be metal, not sure how easily this will chip or if it will be destroyed if it goes in the dishwasher. Comes with a plastic scoop to measure the coffee. Fine apart from the size for occasional use.

The aerolatte cafetière has a stylish contemporary look compared to the traditional style we all know and it makes a very decent cup of coffee – so it’s not just a pretty vase (sorry). The metal frame has a minimal design that emphasises the glass inside, it holds the beaker perfectly securely but the frame itself doesn’t feel that sturdy. The glass beaker is a good weight and is easily removed from the frame for cleaning, beware the hidden screw-heads holding the handle in place as they could scratch your beaker if they work loose. The plunger has a very fine stainless steel mesh filter that seems finer than others i’ve had and (so far) is doing a great job of keeping the coffee grounds in the jug and out of my cup. I’ve even tried it with fine ground filter coffee and it did a good job (admittedly not 100%, but still good) of holding them back. The plunger does stop short of the base of the jug, about 15mm from the bottom which is more than some cafetières i’ve had, so maybe that helps let the ground settle while it avoids undue pressure on the base of the jug. There’s another filter built into the pouring point of the lid but i’m not sure that does very much, the mesh isn’t particularly fine and there’s a gap between the bottom rim of the lid and the jug that would allow coffee grounds through anyway. You also have to be sure to align that pouring point in the lid with the pouring lip of the glass beaker, there’s an arrow head marked on top of the lid to help, but even fully aligned this jug pours quite slowly, albeit in a controllable and relatively drip-free manner. Overall it feels like a well-designed and reasonably well-made item, it looks great and is a pleasure to use and the coffee it produces is relatively grounds-free. It might not be the sturdiest cafetière ever but it’s one of the more stylish.

A decent sized and reasonably attractive cafetiere or french press, providing enough coffee for 3 to 4 ordinary mugs of coffee. I have an electric bean grinder that i set to slightly coarse, and in brews to date i have not had any issues with grounds in my cup. A reasonable price for a decent make, and should last for years.

I’ve been looking for one of these for ages. After having a coffee filter machine, followed by a dolce gusto, i found that all i really wanted was a good cup of fresh filter coffee that hadn’t been stewed. This aerolatte french press is perfect. It fits seven cups, although they would be small cups. You could probably get three mugs out of one jug. It’s very easy to use and i’m loving the simpicity of the plunge and drink system after feeling that coffee has become awfully complicated lately. You add about four scopps (scoop provided) of ground coffee and add water that has been boiled but is not boiling. I find that if you use boiling water then it kind of kills the aroma and flavour. I usually leave the kettle for about four or five minuets before pouring over the ground coffee. Leave it as long as you dare, and plunge.

    There may be better cafetieres out there, but not at this price. Easy to use, makes loads of coffee and easy to clean, including in dishwashers. The main thing to mention is that it brews in bulk – up to 7cups. So perfect for dinner parties or if you have a big family.

    This cafetière feels cheap and has a few snagging issues which should have been caught by quality control. For me, bodum is the best brand but i compromised and bought a whittards own brand one as it was cheaper, but it’s definitely far better than this one. The aerolatte feels cheap and as if it might break rather too easily. I won’t be using it again.

    This is a perfectly ok coffee maker. I grind my own beans and this filters them fine – the build quality isn’t absolutely top notch but its sturdy and the price asked probably explains the possible lack, in absolute terms, of quality in the build. All fits in the dishwasher and the action to depress the filter works well. Overall good value and in a week of constant use – hasn’t let me down.

    Wow, you have to be dedicated to use a cafetiere. After disassembling and washing every part, then reassembling and filling to the “4” mark and brewing a coffee, only to realise that “4” is referring to millilitres and not cups – well, my mug took about “3” of those “4”. I thought to myself “i need a coffee now after that effort”. To be fair everything is apparently dishwasher safe although a few parts will probably need to be carefully loaded or they’ll be flipped all over the place, such is the way with dishwashers. The good thing is that the scoop is calibrated to the measures on the side, so “4” is 4 scoops of your ground coffee. The pouring is somewhat on the slow side for some reason, i think because there’s a second filter grating on the lid. The coffee did have some “dust” in it but obviously you can’t do anything about that, it’s going to get through any grating. Overall i’m going to say it’s a good cafetiere and seems well made and does totally disassemble for cleaning so no issues at all. The glass jar is thin so be careful with it. For one person it’s a gigantic pain with the setup, but if you’re serving four, it’s fine. I think that’s the genuine maximum unless you’re doing tiny cups. Now if you’ll excuse me, i’m needed back at my capsule coffee machine.

    I’m a big fan of good coffee and expected to like this french press from aerolatte. The design looks okay on paper, with mention of features such as additional filtration to ensure that coffee grounds don’t make it to the cup. It’s also quite attractive to look at with bright metalwork and a handy measuring guide on the side of the beaker. The product itself is of european design and chinese manufacture according to the packaging. In practice i was disappointed to find that although it sounds good there are issues with the quality of the product. My first sign of something being amiss was when removing the glass beaker from the metal frame, as it felt tighter than it should have. On closer inspection i found that there were three cross-head screws holding the handle to the frame and that all of them had a slightly sharp edge, with a small amount of burring visible. Basically that is an indication of poor (or worn) tooling in use during manufacture when the screws were tightened, and the sharp edges appear to be pressing against the glass. When looking very closely it’s even possible to see that the chromed finish has been lifted on one of my screw heads leaving the exposed steel to rust. Compared to the build quality of other cafetiere that i’ve owned and used this one does feel poorer and i have doubts about how long it will last.

        Perfectly happy with this cafetiere. It’s neat, sleek and modern looking. We’ve tried a couple of different medium ground coffees and used 4 scoops. No escaping grounds as some reviewers have mentioned. We never drink the small bit at the bottom anyway as it can be sludgey, no matter how expensive the cafetiere. . Just remember to follow the leaflet instructions and use hot water, not boiling.

        Nice seven cup cafetiere by aerolatte. Simple classic design featuring a wire mesh plunger and a spout with an integrated micro filter that keeps stray grounds out of your pour. The borosilicate glass carafe is removable and dishwasher safe. Described as a seven cup cafetiere the carafe is marked at 3, 5 and 7 cups and a plastic 7 gram measuring spoon is included for dosing. The plunger is designed for easy operation. The aerolatte doesn’t introduce any air into the brew – it’s a basic french press device that real coffee easy to make. Add ground coffee with the included spoon, add water just off the boil, wait a few minutes, plunge and pour. It’s simple enough to rinse out the carafe and filter / plunger and is then good for the next brew. For a 7 cup 800ml cafetiere the aerolatte is shorter and wider than other designs which i like. Replacement parts are available.

    This is a decent cafetiere which looks good and, so far, performs very well. If, like me, you’re sometimes confused by ‘7 cup’, i can tell you that it makes two decent sized mugs. I assume ‘cups’ means those tiny things you get outside french cafes. Markings on the side to guide you as to how much water but then you probably know that from experience anyway and definitely after the first few brews. One slight drawback is that the handle is a bit small, especially for a man’s hand and if you’re not careful, your knuckles will be in contact with the hot glass. It’s a small thing and not enough to detract from five stars.

    I have reviewed a number of cafetiere’s over the years, some have been well made and others have been quite poorly made. On opening, it appears to be very nicely made out of glass and metal, with a hardened plastic handle. It is in actual use you soon realise this is not a good product. As you slide the filter down, coffee dregs are let through and your coffee is almost undrinkable. I tested it twice and twice the same thing happened. This item looks good, but it cannot be used. Its such a shame, but i cannot recommend this item.

    1. 2.0 out of 5 stars it dribbles
      I have had this cafetiere for more than 6 months now, and use it every morning. The good parts: it looks good. The design is unusual, which is hard to find in cafetieres, and stylish. It’s easy to clean, because the glass jug comes out very easily, and although i haven’t been able to disassemble the plunger end (because it turns in the plastic handle) i haven’t really needed to either. Unfortunately, it dribbles when pouring. I have tried to perfect my pouring technique in the hope of avoiding this, but after 6 months of daily usage, no luck. I tried removing the micro-filter thing, but that didn’t help either. It seems to be something about the shape of the top lid. So, sadly, this one has to go.

  25. 5.0 out of 5 stars A made-to-measure cafetiere

    Best cup of coffee i’ve ever managed to make at home. In the past, i could never get the quantity of coffee right no matter how hard i tried but the measuring spoon and instructions that come with the cafetiere make it really easy.
