Comparison with the Bean Envy French Press
Let us now talk about the biggest competitor of the Kitchen Supreme French Press, and that is the Bean Envy French Press. It is its biggest competitor because its main selling point is also the versatility of its design. As far as the accessories that come with the French press, it is not as numerous as that from the one from Kitchen Supreme.
In fact, the accessory that comes with the Bean Envy press is a milk frother. However, this milk frother can also prove to be more useful than the accessories that came with the Kitchen Supreme French Press. This is the case as an actual milk frother can also make cappuccinos, frappuccinos, and even milk teas.
In comparison, the mixing tool that the Kitchen Supreme French Press has will require a lot of effort from the user to achieve a good froth. In short, it is more convenient to use a milk frother. Could this be the downfall of the Kitchen Supreme Press?
As for its filtration system, it has a simple one unlike the four levels of the Kitchen Supreme, so expect to have a few stray coffee grounds in your coffee. Also, some parts of the French press are made of plastic that may or may not affect the quality of your brew.
This fact also raises a question about the overall durability of the product. It is, however, dishwasher safe or at least some of its parts. When compared to Kitchen Supreme, the Bean Envy is the winner in terms of convenience in cleaning.
Taking everything into consideration, the winner is still the Kitchen Supreme French Press. We can also safely say that it is one of the most versatile coffee makers in the market. With that said, it is not a perfect French press since it does have some design flaws that can somehow irritate the user.
You really have to do some of the dirty work in order to make it clean and to finally enjoy your cup of coffee, but surely, this effort is worth it because once your coffee is brewed, you are assured that you get a great tasting one.
Enjoy your latte, lemonade, and even salad with this French press!
