The Stainless Steed

My Excursion into the World of Double-Walled Mueller French Press

By: James Butler       Revised by: Mark Cambell   Last updated: Jan 29, 2024

The arrival of the Mueller double-walled French press heralded a new chapter in my coffee journeys. Until then, I had been content with my trusty glass and wood steeds, ambling leisurely along well-trodden paths.

But the Mueller beckoned - a shiny stainless steed, promising to carry me to undiscovered coffee frontiers. I was skeptical at first. How could mere metal improve upon what I knew?

I hitched my hopes to this strange steed. As the first brew steeped and released its aroma, I felt the steed gather speed, carrying me swiftly towards new heights of flavor. Notes I had never detected before emerged clearly.

The steed proved sure-footed and swift. Its double walls maintained insulation for hours, allowing flavors to develop over time. Its durable frame showed no signs of wear.

While my wood and glass steeds remain dear companions, content to walk the familiar trails, the Mueller has awakened a spirit of adventure within me. Together we have galloped into realms of boldness and complexity I never dreamed possible.   

So while my excursions may at times take me far afield, I know my trusty steed of stainless will faithfully carry me there and back again, brew after brew. And I have come to appreciate the simplicity and precision of its engineering, allowing me to focus on savoring the journey itself.

This shiny stainless steed may lack the charm of wood and glass, but it has transformed my coffee journeys beyond measure. I only wonder now - what undiscovered horizons still lie ahead?
