Home coffee-making equipment has come a long way, but the typical french press is still assembled from plastic and delicate glass in an overseas factory. The Portland Press is a french press for a mason jar that is made in the state of Oregon out of materials sourced in the USA. It’s a simple, clean, practical design made out of fundamental materials: glass, wool, steel, and wood. Most importantly, the Mason jar is easy to replace if it breaks, and the rest of the Portland Press is backed with a lifetime warranty. The Portland Press just launched a crowdfunding campaign on Crowd Supply – if you’re a fan of this project you can support it here!
