It isnt much more time than your drip machine and to me, you get a richer better flavor.

I buy whole bean and grind each day based on weight and compare it to how much water. I kept a log until I found my sweet spot.

It does make a great Cup of coffee. That being said, I drink 3/4 a pot of coffee every morning and it’s a royal PITA with a French press. I don’t miss it.

Does it taste better? Yes.
Is there a PITA factor added? Yes.

For me, it is not worth the extra effort to bypass a coffee maker. Throw filter out, dump excess coffee, swirl water around pot.

With French press, it gets colder while steeping, cleaning up is more time consuming. If the coffee is good, then I don't need to enhance it with a French press.

Also, use heavy whipping cream instead of half and half. But I will warn you, you will NEVER go back.

Same here, and I actually enjoyed it, and not just because it was hot. I think if I experimented with the amount of the coffee grinds and water ratio, I could really lock in a good combination as someone noted above.

We do the pour over with the filter cone in the top of the French press pot. Boil a tea kettle full of water and then slowly pour it over the ground coffee. Doesn't take long at all and very good coffee.

We use one in the trailer throughout hunting season. I can’t imagine that makes me gay! I like good, black coffee in the am and a French press is the easiest way for us. Just boil water, mix with ground, let it sit and then press. Pretty darn easy! To me it’s about like cowboy coffee. I do love the taste and don’t consider it the least bit high brow.

i was just using a refillable keurig but my wife is a self professed coffee snob and she tried a bunch of different stuff before settling on using a pour over. i can't tell the difference really but i always put heavy whipping cream in my coffee so maybe it's enough to throw off the subtle flavors she's always talking about.

It was as good as any other way I had coffee before. After that trip, my wife bought me one sorta as a gag gift. I put it in the closet and pretty much forgot about it. Fast forward to the big freeze when we were without power for 52 hours, I thought of the French press, dug it out of the closet, boiled some water on the propane cooktop and we were off to the races.

It is a splendid way to experience the full body of the bean. Your pallet will immediately be fully engaged with the full robust flavor and aroma! Best enjoyed while listening to anything by Elton John.

I like French press. To me the extra effort is in the cleanup, washing the grinds out of an off of the press. I have a double walled stainless steel press that doesnít cool as fast as glass.

Iím very intrigued by a traditional Costa Rican chorreador for making coffee

I use French press, takes up less space, plus you can always boil water, can’t always power up a drip coffee maker.

You need a bigger French Press and a thermos or carafe to keep it hot.

My French Press makes 1 cup at a time and I really really enjoy my coffee made with it on the weekends. If I'm expecting more than 1 person, I often make it French Press - Cowboy style.

I'll use a 12 cup blue camp style coffee pot,
  • put water in up to just below the bottom pour hole,
  • heat the water until just when bubbles start to appear,
  • add 1/2 cup of coffee grinds, bring to a rolling boil. (watch the coffee acid foam off)
  • Boil for 4 minutes.
  • Then take ice cold water and pour slowly in the spout and around the edges and some in the middle. The cold water will push the grinds down to the bottom.
  • Slowly pour a cup. There won't be any grinds or very few grinds in your cup.
(If I'm worried about grinds, then I'll use a cup sized metal strainer or cheesecloth. It is some of the best coffee I've ever had.

Well, if THAT's "French Press" coffee, I'm all in! Been makin' "boiled coffee" for over 60 years... didn't know I was makin' such fancy coffee!! Several years ago, I got a little glass straight-sided beaker looking thing with a plunger/filter that fit on top of it... after makin' the coffee like posted above, I pour it into that little glass pot and press the filter down slowly to separate the coffee from the grounds...



Yes, it's more of a PITA, but it sure makes a good cup of coffee... Sadly though, just about every morning, it's just a Kurig cup or two in my 20 ounce RTIC thermal cup and off to the office I go!!!

I make one press full every two days. I drink half one day then half the next. The second day is microwaved and never tastes as good as the first day.

Consider blooming the fresh ground coffee to oxidize and release co2 and other gases/aromatics within the bean. Essentially moistening the grounds with warm water and letting sit for a minute or so before adding the rest of the water. Take a deep whiff. Blooming allows the fresh ground beans to express full flavor and beneficial chemicals before drowning/steeping in water and pressing. Or some chit.

Coffee beans lose alot of antioxidants and other good chemicals after grinding. So….grinding should be done as close to blooming amd steeping as possible.

Upside: Its almost impossible to burn french press coffee since there is no burner.
Downside: Glass press caraffes break easily

Ive been meaning to buy a metal camp press/kettle pot all-in-one that goes directly to the fire or heat source.

Good slurping MrBrunner

We were at a fishing cabin a few weeks ago and one of my buddies is a coffee guru. He is an early riser and made the coffee every morning. If you have time, the aero and pour over, with fresh hand ground beans is a game changer. He would also heat the half and half before going into the coffee. Best coffee I've ever had. That with breakfast taco, followed up with a Hemingway Short story cigar for breakfast makes me wonder why I didn't just stay there forever.

I’m a coffee snob, I’ll admit it! I have a drip maker, 2 French presses, a pour over and a K cup machine. I love a press or pour over, but I typically only do that on the weekend due to time. Try a press…guarantee you won’t be disappointed!

French press makes a good cup of coffee. I bought a Chemex a while back. That's probably my favorite way to brew coffee. But it's more of a process than a French press. Smooth coffee though.

I have an announcement to make

For the reasons stated above, I did not think I would go back to a french press. However, I find myself drinking 1-2 cups of coffee every day. The past few weeks I have been dusting off my french press, putting ground coffee in it and head into the office. The office does provide free coffee, and they do have a Starbucks. But I'm tired of spending $3.94 on a 20 oz coffee and I'm also can't stand the horrid taste of the free coffee. It's worse than Folgers. My saving grace is the "hot water" tap on their coffee maker. If I had to guess, it's 211*F. It will scald you.

So, French Press it is. In this case, it's worth the hassle for a good cup of low cost coffee in my current predicament.
