EDITOR’S NOTE: Aldi sold this French press again in January of 2023 for a lower price of $12.99. Aldi also sold it in October of 2022 for $16.99. In March of 2022, Aldi sold another French press, the Crofton Glass French Press with Bamboo Lid. You can read about that other French press here

Most people who drink coffee get it in one a few different ways. They might swing by Starbucks or some other establishment that sells it by the cup. They might brew it in their own machine, like a traditional coffee machine or in a Keurig. Or they might go the instant coffee route if they’re in a hurry.

There is, though, a subculture of coffee aficionados who prefer to use a French press to make their coffee. A French press involves putting hot water in the press and then pressing down on a filter to separate the grounds from the coffee itself. A French press can be quite versatile, allowing for hot brew, cold brew, and even tea, but it also requires having some other things on hand, such as a kettle to heat your water. In addition, some health experts caution that French press coffee can be higher in oils that can raise cholesterol and recommend using a French press in moderation.

Nevertheless, a French press can be a handy thing to have around if you want a special cup of joe. Every once in a while, Aldi sells one.

What We Know:

Crofton French Press

The Crofton French Press (Product Code: 704946) is an Aldi Find. That means it’s only in stores for a limited time. Once it’s gone, it’s gone, at least until it comes back at some unknown future date. Aldi doesn’t ship products online, so if your store doesn’t have any more of the French presses, you’re out of luck.

At the time of this post, the French press cost $16.99. That’s lower than most other French presses I’ve seen out there.

Here’s what information Aldi has about the French press:

  • Brews up to 4 cups of coffee
  • Available in modern designs in Egg Shell White or Rose Gold
  • Features a capacity of 33.8 oz.

What We Don’t Know:

  1. The glass breaks very easily, because it is really thin.

  2. So far this French press has produced the best cup of coffee I’ve every had with a very smooth taste. It is vastly superior to the brew my Mr. Coffee produces. It is much easier to clean as well. I’d highly recommend it.

  3. The paint around the edge of the top inside has started peeling revealing rust beneath the lid. The paint and rust season your coffee. I’ve had this one since 2019. I don’t know how long they’re supposed to last but everything about mine is still functional except for that most important fact.
