You know very well that french press coffee makers categorically leave too much sediment in your cup. Dual filter french press coffee makers however capture a lot more of the fines while still allowing the oils pass through making your coffee taste even better.
Its a commonly accepted fact that french press coffee is some of the best coffee on the planet so I hope you consider splurging on once sooner than later because you will simply enjoy your coffee that much more.
The vast majority of plungers use a single filtration system or at most a double stacked fine mesh screen. The problem with these is that the smallest grind particles can pass straight through these filters. After experimentation with my P7 Espro Press however I’ve discovered that sediment can be almost entirely removed because of the plungers unique dual filters.
The best models out there in fact are the ones with two filters, even those that just stack mesh filters on top of each other. But there are so many models that do this and only a few take it a step further. Only a few actually perform significantly better than the rest and that’s the purpose of this article.
Below I’ve identified five of the best press pots that filter your coffee better than the rest with the aid of double filtration. Let’s look at the list and compare.
Dual Filter French Press Reviews – The Best Models for Filtering All Grind Out of Your Coffee
As I just said, there are quite a few models out there that you might want to go for. In fact, there are so many that you might even get confused. Let us check out the main models and see what’s so special about them. After that you should have a good idea about which model is going to be best for you.
One of the main things that tops this list is the winner of the 2016 Best New Product award: Espro PRess P5. This is a beautiful coffee press that’s not only super functional because of its dual filter structure, but also really durable because it’s made from a kind of glass that’s 140% as thick as the usual glass that goes into making coffee presses.

A Buyer’s Guide to the French Press
You must naturally be wondering as to what we can base our judgements of any French press on. Of course, there are a few factors that are the same for all of them; however, there are a few things which vary from model to model and we can consider those to find out which model would be the best.
Based on your needs, the best model for you shifts subject to the factors. So it’s really important to know which features to check out based on your needs. However, for a general estimation, there are some factors that you might as well consider in case of almost every need. The factors that we have taken into account here are as follows:
- One of the main things that we’ve taken into account here, as the whole article is based on it, is the fact that it must have a dual filter. All the models that you can find on this list have dual filters, making them have that point to their advantage.
- Another thing that you must keep in mind is the durability of a product. You might have a lot of options, but a good and durable product actually makes itself worth it. In case of other products, while it looks less expensive, you’re actually paying more with replacement costs.
- Another thing that you must consider is the size. You must be aware of your needs and buy the model(s) that serve them, perfectly. So be sure to buy the model that’s the right size according to your consumption and space needs.
- Next, there is the factor of specialty. Some models are made for specific cases, such as the portable model we mentioned in our list. In such a case, once again, your needs come into consideration. If you’re looking for something like that, then that must be a good thing to go for because special models are mostly unique.
- And at the end, the economic factor must always be kept in mind. You can’t simply exceed your budget, so you must make the most within it. If you can’t afford it, you must control yourself from buying more expensive models, as tempting as it might be. You’ll find that it’s actually a pretty good decision to be economically wise at the end of the day.
As you can see, we’ve got our priorities sorted out on this. We know the points that we are going to take into consideration when we compare the models. Since we are giving you a generalized comparison, we can’t take your specific points into consideration.
However- you can! So you must keep in mind that the right model for you depends on your specific needs and you must always judge according to them. In that way, you can easily find the right model and, once again, the above mentioned points have been taken into consideration in our case.
We have tried to arrange them properly in order to be able to compare all the models. From that, we have shortened the choices up to this list. We have chosen these models because we believe that they are all really special and these models deserve special mention. Now you judge for yourself, from here.

- Is sediment always formed when we make coffee with the French press?
Well, yes it does, actually. As a regular coffee maker, you know how making coffee is. It’s pretty much a guarantee that sediment will be formed and that’s exactly why we need to use presses with extra filters so that we don’t find it in our coffee when we drink it.
- Is it safe to filter it in the French press?
One of the questions I frequently come along is if it’s safe to actually filter coffee. Well, it’s no different than holding back the grounds with your hands, so worry not, it’s completely safe. Not only is it safe but, it’s also recommendable because the press is specially designed for that purpose, making it more efficient and time saving.
- Are single filters not enough?
Well, I won’t lie and tell you that it’s always so. But well, sometimes there is a bit of sediment left even after a single filtering, and not everyone enjoys that. That’s why these double filter models have cropped up, which work to make sure that you don’t have any sediment in your coffee.
- How important is the economic factor in this case?
Well, in most of the cases here, it isn’t really too important because these machines aren’t too expensive, but you must be aware about how much you can spend. You have to make a budget before you go out to buying anything if you don’t want to end up in serious trouble. So, you have to take care of that and buy a model that fits your budget. That’s one of the things a smart shopper always does.
So, at the end of the day, there are all these French press models out there and as you just saw, there are a lot of really nice models as well which offer you dual filters to keep the sediment out of your coffee.
However, as with all things, you must still be aware about your specific needs and judge the product according to that. You must keep in mind that the most recommended model out there isn’t always the right one for you. The best one for you is the one that serves all your specific needs at the most reasonable price. So, keep that in mind and you’ll be good to go!
