As GB said, you can pick up a french press in a lot of places. They sell them at all the kitchen stores, online at places like Amazon and Fantes, and at a lot of the houseware chains like Bed Bath & Beyond. You can get them in a variety of sizes - 3, 8, and 12 cup.
I have the 3 cup and usually let the coffee steep 3 maybe 4 minutes before plunging. Makes a good cup of joe.
