Closely related to the Secura is the Fresh Tek stainless steel French press coffee maker. With a similarly sleek design, it has a simple silken finish that makes it relatable to the user. The main design difference between this and the Secura is that the Fresh Tek has an elongated knob at the lid, a slight difference on paper but in reality giving the Secura an aesthetic lead in my opinion. This French press serves a flavorful coffee, ideal for anyone who is mad about their coffee.
Stainless Steel Design
With a stainless steel design, it is sold as an all indestructible’ French press as it cannot break, melt or crack. The stainless steel design actually makes it a very durable design, which is a very important requirement for French press buyers. After all, who wants to buy a coffee brewer that will fall apart in a day or two?
With a capacity of 34 ounces, the equivalent of 1000 ml: this French press is bound to have you drinking at least eight 4 -ounce cups of coffee. For the larger coffee mugs, you would probably get two or three of those out of this brewer per round of coffee.
Just like the Secura, this French press is double walled in construction, therefore ensuring that your coffee stays hot just for you. There’s nothing as annoying as drinking your first cup of coffee hot, then coming back to get a second cup-like 30 minutes later and finding it cold already. The Fresh Tek takes care of this, though, delivering it fresh and hot for you.
The press comes with a micro -filtration mesh. It isn’t specified whether this is three -layered, and may therefore not result in coffee as smooth as that of the Secura and the Bodum Brazil.
Variety of Colors
Unlike the Secura that only comes in that silver finish, this sleek design is available in three colors: silver, red and black. Is it not amazing to be able to choose what color of French press you can have? I think this is added value on their part.
What’s more? The Fresh Tek press comes with a clip – a handled scoop that you can use to remove your coffee bag from inside the press. This is also a rare addition in comparison to other press manufacturers. Again, it comes with a bamboo cloth that ensures you can shine your Fresh Tek stainless steel French press every day, back to the shiny new brewer that it was the very first day that you saw it. Once again, this is not a very common addition. We really must give it to Fresh Tek for being quite customer oriented and thinking out of the box. They have really gone out on a limb for this one.
On weight, the Fresh Tek comes at a low weight of 1.1 pounds. This is quite impressive especially for a double insulated French press as one would expect it to be a bit heavier than this.
The Fresh Tek French press sells at a starting price of $37.50 on Amazon, which is a notably higher price as compared to the Secura.
So let’s get to the pros and cons of this press, shall we?

On an overall, I would still say the Fresh Tek French press is a good buy. It may not be for the budget buyer, but for the discerning coffee lover who likes their coffee hot, is attracted to an additional coffee press scoop and cloth, but is not too keen on the filter system. Then the Fresh Tek French press would suit them perfectly. The higher price is also not a problem.
