This looks intriguing. What materials are used in it? I see what looks like glass and metal and maybe silicone but the pod portion looks like plastic?

Between order and chaos there is espresso.
Semper discens.

Thanks. I missed that somehow.

Also found this on their site (of course, I found it AFTER I posted my question):

Q: Is the American Press made of food-safe materials?

A: The American Press is made of the highest quality materials available and is constructed from only three main materials: Stainless steel (lid exterior, rod and filters), BPA-free Tritan® (the carafe and pod are made of Tritan, a resin that is actually more costly than glass, necessary with respect to manufacturing tolerances needed to make the American Press function properly, and it is the same material baby bottles are made of in the USA, EU, Japan, etc. and is fully Prop 65, Japan Ministry of Health and FDA compliant), and medical-grade silicone (seals and lid core).
