Rite Press -The ‘No Mess’ French Press | Create amazing, full-flavored coffee and tea at home with effortless cleanup in under 4 minutes.
Rite Press makes coffee a breeze with a removable bottom, integrated thermometer, and built-in timer.
At Rite, we have built a thermometer and timer into the French Press to ensure an amazing cup of coffee every time. Our proprietary design makes coffee clean-up easy with a simple twist-off bottom. The stainless steel filter forces all the grounds into our patented removable bottom chamber, which twists off for easy cleaning.
Rite Press takes coffee making to the next level with a built-in thermometer, integrated hourglass timer and a removable bottom.
We’ve removed the guesswork from the perfect cup by adding the key features needed to deliver great tasting coffee consistently.
Burnt coffee is bad, having to read tiny numbers before you’ve had your first cup… also bad.
Our custom designed and manufactured thermometer has a simple Blue, Green, Red scale. Blue is too cold and Red is too hot. The Green zone is centered at 200 degrees, which is the optimal temperature for a great cup of coffee.The Rite thermometer lives in the shaft of the filter so it’s easy to use and is always on hand.
Timing is everything, especially in a coffee press. Both under- and over-brewing lead to bad-tasting coffee. Our built-in and simple to use hourglass is set for precisely 3 min and 30 seconds. When the sand is done flowing, it’s time to press down the plunger and enjoy an amazing cup. The Rite timer is magnetically attached to the Rite Press.
French Press cleanup is notoriously annoying. We’ve solved that issue with our patented removable bottom, allowing you to conserve energy, water, and time.
This solves the biggest French Press issue—cleanup! The bottom unscrews so you can easily dump the grounds and rinse with minimal effort. The precisely manufactured bottom is designed with two start positions allowing you to easily tighten the bottom with only one full turn. The Rite press also features a medical grade silicon seal to ensure the coffee or grounds don’t drip while in use.
The Rite Press delivers full-bodied coffee with rich flavor and keeps it hot for hours.
The double wall construction keeps your coffee hot for up to two hours. Hang out with loved ones and enjoy hot coffee for much longer than a standard glass French Press.
The micro mesh filter allows a full-bodied brew for your coffee while keeping the coffee grounds pushed into the removable bottom.
The Rite Press is even great for loose leaf tea! Steep the tea in hot water and use the filter to push the tea leaves into the removable bottom for easy cleanup.
The Tea Kit features three sand timers set for the approximate times each type of tea should steep for. The sand is colored to keep selection of the Rite timer simple.
Green Sand: Green Teas.
Black Sand: Black and Red Teas
White Sand: White, Flower and Oolong Teas
The thermometer highlights the different temperature ranges for each tea and will fit into the press in place of the Coffee thermometer.
The Tea Kit will work for all Rite Presses in this campaign.
We selected our factory partners with great care. Each factory we use is inspected by the Rite team to ensure safe, responsible working conditions. Our factories meet and exceed all environmental production standards.

Q: Does Rite Press prevent over-extraction? Do I need to pour the coffee into a separate container?
The Rite Press is designed to prevent over-extraction. When the filter is pressed to the bottom of a standard press, the extraction continues because there is a micro-current created in the press. The coffee at the side walls is slightly colder than that in the center of the press, and as result the coffee in the middle starts to rise and the coffee on the sides starts to fall. The two-part design of the Rite Press, combined with the silicone gasket, disrupts this process. The current in the Rite Press stays above the filter. To put it simply, Rite Press coffee is yummy for a long time.
