I've been using this for a couple of days now and I have to say the coffee tastes great. The screens fit tightly into the pot and reach all the way to the bottom. So the coffee gets a thorough press plus no grinds get through the filter. My favorite feature so far (besides the great coffee) is the built-in thermometer because it tells me if I am brewing at the right temperature. I now make better coffee than I can buy at the local coffee shop! And for way less!!!!
