3 Reasons for French Coffee press

From the elegant and popular Bodum French Press and its thermal coffee presses, to the portable Jetboil coffee press, to the portable, yet elegant Bonjour coffee press, the French Press is one of the simplest, yet most preferred coffee makers by coffee lovers all over the world.

French coffee press is another term for french press or coffee press. The French Press comes in many forms. 


There are three main reasons why French coffee press is still popular today, especially among coffee aficionados even though electric coffee makers are getting more and more technologically advanced.

First of all, French Press coffee is very easy to make. If you understand how the French coffee Press works, you will be able to make the best tasting homemade coffee with your own coffee Press.

Learn how to use a french press as a coffee maker

When used correctly, the coffee press can help you make the richest home brewed coffee you’ll ever make.

• First and foremost, use coarsely ground coffee. When using the French Press, the size of the grounds is important as it greatly influences the end result.

Therefore, having uniform large coffee particles is paramount. Too fine, and the grinds will find their way through the filter, and you’ll end up with sludge in your coffee.

Coarsely ground coffee beans will remain at the bottom of the filter of the French Press.

• Second, use hot water and not boiling water. Once you heat water up to a boil, let it sit for a minute or two.

Using boiling water can lead to disastrous results, such as having scalding liquid shoot out of the French Press, which can lead to injury.

• Third, don’t press on the plunger at once when you pour in the water. Allow the water and coffee grounds to mix together.

In fact, stirring the mixture of hot water and coffee grounds will aid in the extraction process. Then, allow the mixture to sit for four minutes before plunging.

• Finally, when pressing down on the plunger, do not use excessive force. Just press down gently, and make sure that the plunger rod is absolutely straight.

If it goes crooked, the filter might not be snugly fit with the beaker anymore, and the coffee grounds will escape into the upper portion.

Then, french press coffee maker is very easy to wash. Just dispose of the spent coffee grounds after brewing. If you can, disassemble the filter assembly.

This will make it easier to access and remove coffee grounds that found their way between the different parts of the filter assembly.

Furthermore, most, if not all of the parts of coffee presses are dishwasher safe. If not, a thorough rinse in running water will help keep your French Press clean.

Finally, and probably the most appealing thing about owning a French coffee Press (as I like to call them) is that you don’t need to spend a lot to own a good one.

In fact, with $20, you can get a good coffee Press. More specifically, the Bodum French Press, one of the most popular French Press brands today, is very affordable. The Bodum Chambord Coffee Press only costs around $30 and with it you can make rich and flavorful French Press coffee.
