Frieling French Presses Win 2017 Housewares Design Award. An independent panel of judges selected the Frieling French Presses as the winner for its superior design, appearance, function and originality. Frieling’s French Presses feature a patented dual filtration system combining a pre-filter and an exclusive super-fine screen for better coffee. The screen catches coffee grounds that may have passed through the pre-filter, eliminating bitter aftertaste and sediment in the cup. A stainless steel ring inside the coil prevents grounds from bypassing the filter. A tribute to simplicity, style and smart design, these models are double-wall insulated to retain heat up to four times longer than a glass press.
