I've been using a caffetiere (aka moka pot) for years now, and it produces a decent cup of coffee, assuming your coffee is fresh and ground appropriately.
I also have and use french presses (again OK cups but depends on coffee quality and how its ground, having it ground for a caffetiere and using it in a french press will produce a crap cup, and vice versa).
If your worried about the fragility of the glass bodies of the french presses, then you can get something like this [link]
It also has the benefit of keeping the coffee warm for longer.
As for all coffee making, it can take a while to nail down the technique (including grind) that make a good cup, so experiment, you will make some truly hideous cups, but once you find the correct technique, it will be worth it.
I've been very happy with the Thermos Nissan 34oz Stainless Steel Coffee Press.
It's easy to clean, won't break like many other glass presses, and keeps the coffee hot for several hours.
Yikes. I've had (and abused) my inexpensive glass press from Target for several years now. I run it in the dishwasher and everything, and it's been a workhorse. Do you think yours had a chip or anything?
I haven't tried this stainless steel press but the price is right and I have Nissan travel mugs that I like. Maybe that's the way to go?
