French Press anywhere besides Kona Cafe?

My DH & I are so excited to be going on a long-weekend getaway to WDW, just the two of us! Our five kiddos are staying home with Grandma and Grandpa! He would love to try the french press coffee while we're there, but we're not planning on eating at Kona Cafe. Is there anywhere else (preferrably counter service or a stand) that he can get french press coffee?

The Grand Floridian Cafe had something similar to Kona. It was good anyway.

Grand Blend Press Pot Coffee $6.29

I think Boma has one too.

The big deal of the french press at Kona is that it is, if I remember correctly, 100% Kona coffee. As far as I know, no one has that, so it'll just be another way of brewing the coffee the restaurant is serving. We bring a plastic french press pot while camping; it's just another way of getting hot water through the ground beans...though the nice thing is that you know it's pretty fresh!

I know you said you'd prefer counter service or a kiosk, but I do recommend Kouzzina. In addition to press pot coffee, they have an outstanding breakfast menu and excellent bloody Marys. It's a real treat for an adult breakfast.

Oh yes, kouzzina coffee is good too (along with the breakfast). Good call sweet Melissa.

Kouzzina presses Joffrey's coffee which is pretty good.

All of the AKL TS restaurants press Kenya AA. Very good!

AP over at WL has a great French Press coffee...but I don't know what kind, but it's great.

Now that I think about it, most of the signature restaurants seem to press.

We have had many, many pressed pots of coffee from Kona over the years and it is the best, in our opinion. We did, however, encounter a really bad batch in Feb. 2011, where we had to keep sending our pots back to the kitchen. They were awful and we were unable to get a good cup... In May of 2012 the coffee was great again. We also had their coffee beans sent to our house for a while so we could press ourselves...

Kouzzina, Boma, Kona and Sanaa might be the least expensive places for you to try French pressed coffee. Kouzzina's taste is the least impressive but still acceptable. Lunch prices at Sanaa are very reasonable. Breakfast or lunch at Kona are also fairly inexpensive by Disney standards. Your French pressed coffee will set you back about $7 (but it is intended to be shared by two).

Does anyone know if Kouzzina's will allow you to just order a coffee to go? I have high-quality coffee pods that I brought along on our last vacation, but the coffee pod machine had not been used very frequently, and each coffee I made tasted like melted plastic, which was grosser than Disney coffee (but not by much)... We're staying BC/BW for our upcoming trip, and I figure I can run over to Kouzzina's in the morning to grab a good cup of coffee if they'll allow me to get one without actually sitting down in the restaurant to drink it.

If not, my French press and coffee is being packed.

Boma in the AKL has press pot coffee. I'm sure the California grille does also.

By the way, if you love french press you should get an aero press. Google it. It's like a french press but it's faster, leaves no grounds in your cup, and is easier to clean. Got one for Christmas and I've been in love ever since. Costs around 20 bucks!
