How strong do you like your coffee? You choose!

For that pure, smooth coffee flavor, inexpensively, French Press Coffee Makers are the way to go. This is because it brings out more of the coffee’s flavor as the grounds are in direct contact with the brewing water.

A French Press has a narrow cylindrical pot

Usually made of glass or clear bakerlite, with a lid and plunger made of metal or plastic. This plunger has a wire or nylon mesh filter attached. The plunger operates through the center of the lid. Most, but not all, French Presses are double skinned to retain the heat of the coffee.

"They have come into popularity in the USA in recent years. These makers are an older method of brewing coffee by this company and has been used in USA & Europe for many years & One other item that has started to become popular recently is a cold brew coffee maker."

The name for a French Press changes depending on what country you are from. But, whether it be French coffee press, Press Pot, Coffee Plunger (for people downunder) or cafetiere (in the UK) it is still the same coffee maker.

A French Press  is easy to use. Just put the coarse (never fine) coffee grounds into the pot, pour the water on top, fit the lid and plunger unit and let the coffee brew for 4 – 5 minutes. Press the plunger down slowly to the bottom of the pot, then pour your lovely brew into your cup.

You can make one cup at a time or more than one cup, depending on the size of the coffee press you have. You do not have to always make a full pot.
