Have you ever heard of this statement about how the grind is not good enough for espresso maker, but maybe it can be used for french press! What type of mentality is that? French press similar to espresso maker deserves a good grind.

We did not read anywhere that french press coffee maker can use lousy grind, it merely says that french press need coarse grind while espresso coffee maker need fine grind. And by coarse, they meant uniformly and even coarse.

And here is the problem, when people uses low quality grind that most people would not use for their espresso maker, because they know it would not give them uniform grind, but they use it for their french press anyway, the result is sludge.

When the grind is not even, you get coffee dust and stuff, and usually this result in a sludge which lead people thinking that french press produce low quality coffee.

I mean, if the grinder cannot grind an even ground for espresso maker, it would be the same for french press!

So, french press can give good coffee, if they have a century of consumption as their credential, that means people like press coffee for a 100 years. The many negative reviews on french press is due to folks with a biased view!
