Buyer's Guide: Coffee For French Press

Choosing The Best French Press 

Knowing how to make a coffee for French presses is very different than just throwing coffee powder in the machine and turning it on. To make a good cup of coffee with a French press, there are some very important steps to take and little things to consider. In this article, I will discuss how to make coffee with a French press and share my thoughts on French presses and coffee. First of all, what coffee beans produce the best French presses coffee? To answer this question, lets review how the French press really works. The French presses works by placing the coffee beans right into the pot, covering the pot top with water and allowing the pot to steep.

When the coffee steeps, it pours into the filter basket, where it is ground and removed. By gravity, as the coffee brews, it leaves sediment on the bottom and sides of the basket. The sediment makes a big difference in the taste of the cup of coffee. Generally speaking, if you are drinking a darker roast, such as a darker French Press, then the coffee will taste better since it will be ground and darker.

If you are using pre-ground coffee or a pre-ground French Press, the best coffee will come out of the basket with the finest grind. A pre-ground coffee or French Press will not provide the intense flavor of freshly ground beans because the grind size is smaller and the smaller grind size doesn't allow as much air to circulate throughout the grounds as it does with freshly ground coffee. This results in less fullness in the cup of coffee.

Therefore, the French presses will taste weak if the grind size is small. So, to get the best pre-ground coffee or French Press, buy a smaller grinder and use the smallest number of seeds possible. Another idea is to only grind the size of one fourth of an inch or less. The smaller grind size allows for more robust flavors.

Next, let's talk about brewing methods. You can get a French press that uses a basket, drip plate or a plunger top. Each method has its advantages and disadvantages depending on your brewing method. For example, if you are using a basket or a drip plate, then the coffee grounds are forced through the basket and into the basket where they sit until brewed. This is referred to as capping the coffee grounds and gives the cup of coffee a fuller taste.

But, capping is not the ideal way to brew a good cup of French Press coffee. Why? Because, the oils in the coffee grounds are left in the cup, and once the pre ground coffee is poured into the pre ground coffee, then the oils start affecting the taste of the cup of French Press coffee. Therefore, it is best to brew a cup of French Press using a pressurized drip plate. This gives the coffee a better taste and allows for the flavour to be changed according to what you prefer.

Also, if you use a French Press, you will notice that the brew is a darker colour than other drip coffee makers. This is because you use hot water under very high pressure to brew the coffee using the French Press concept. The higher the pressure, the more flavour you can add to the brew. So, it is really a great coffee maker if you want to have a dark tasting cup of French Press every morning.

If you want to save money while enjoying a great cup of coffee, then the French Press is the one you want to use. The benefits mentioned above are just some of the reasons why a French Press makes the best price for single origin coffee. If you would like to save even more money, you can purchase a French Press coffee maker made especially for use with a French Press. These make a great gift idea, especially for those who love to drink coffee in the morning.
