I cannot speak for this, but I own both a 3-cup and an 8-cup coffee press. The 3-cup works for just me and the 8-cup is perfect for entertaining and serving guest.

I got the 8 cup, and think that's what I received. Calling it "8 cup" is a little misleading because you can't actually get 8 cups of water in it and press anything, but I think it holds 8 cups if it were used as a pitcher :-)

A French press serving size is 4oz-- so an 8 cup french press is 32 fluid oz.

BUT that being said, did you get a small 12ish oz FP?

Yeah, that's the point. In our order history it's listed correctly - 8-cup Peridot French Press. But what was shipped was a Blue 3-Cup (we ordered a 32oz green, got a 12oz blue). This happened to at least three of us, and only only two of us noticed immediately upon receipt of our order in August. One just realized yesterday.

Just wondering how many others are out there.

Did the infamous service department make it right with you?

@jsimsace: Absolutely, after I emailed them. But how many other people didn't figure out the accidental bait and switch?

I stand corrected. There are 4 of us now. I missed one person who caught it in August, and it looks like people who ordered the Blue 8 cup were affected as well.

I did. Woot gave me a full refund.

@llamabox: That's weird, because here in America a cup is 8oz. Those French need to man up when drinking coffee!

@kmeltzer: Actually that is not true in regard to coffee or tea. A 12 cup coffee maker only holds 72 oz. That is 6 oz. per cup. It is the same with a teacup. It is 6 oz.

@pyxientx: You can say a cup is 6oz, but that doesn't make it true. It's 8oz, all day long :-) A cup is a cup, not matter how big your cup is.

You call that a cup? THIS is a cup!
