The French press is pretty polarizing, IMHO. As effortlessly cool as it looks, using one can be anything but an effortless process. Anytime I've tried, I've either added too much (or too little) coffee, rendering my brew undrinkable. Or, I don't wait long enough and strain the grounds prematurely. (Conversely, letting them steep for too long makes your brew bitter.) So discovering the Fellow Clara French press truly feels like a game-changer.

Fellow is a brand that specializes in smart, sleek coffee essentials, and it offers a variety of tools to make the brewing process easier, and that includes the Clara French press. It's designed to be beginner-friendly with helpful measurement lines that show people the perfect coffee-to-water ratio—that's right, you don't need a scale. As a result, it's genuinely hard to screw up making a cup of joe.

Even as someone who’s struggled with this type of coffee maker, I found myself brewing really, really good coffee with the Fellow Clara French press…without having to look up YouTube videos! It's the measurement lines that save the day, but it's easy to see that every single detail is thoughtful, well-planned, and designed to ensure a seamless brewing process whether or not you're a coffee-making pro. Its got a double-wall stainless steel that keeps coffee piping hot, as well as a weighted handle that makes pouring a little smoother of a process.
