Coffee Presses Buying Guide

If you like deep, dark, full-flavor coffee, a coffee press is the answer to your java dreams. Once the coffee grounds have steeped, the press forces grounds to the bottom of the brewing pot to capture the concentrated coffee flavor. A French press consists of a narrow glass carafe, lid, and metal plunger for pressing. Coffee connoisseurs prefer coffee from a press because of the rich, complex flavor attained by none of the essential oils being trapped in a filter.

Types of Coffee Presses

Types of Coffee Presses

The upside of a coffee press is the quality of coffee you can brew in just four minutes. The downside is the inability to keep coffee warm in the glass carafe of a classic press. A coffee purist willingly accepts the duty of making just one cup at a time; however, if you like to sip coffee throughout the day, you may want a pricey thermal-insulated press.

French

The traditional French coffee press features a glass or porcelain cylinder that serves as the pot. This is the type carafe most people think of when considering coffee presses.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

A coffee press adds luxury to your coffee enjoyment. Based on your tastes and experience, a traditional or insulated press satisfies cravings for the rich, unfiltered flavor of pure coffee. With a minimal investment you can indulge in a great cup of coffee each day.

Volume

Traditionally, a classic coffee press features a small glass carafe, holding just one or two cups of coffee. Larger presses are now available, some holding up to eight cups.

Insulated

Originally the classic coffee press made coffee for immediate consumption. As the size of presses increased, so did the desire to store brewed coffee. Some coffee presses now come with thermal-insulated carafes, allowing for longer storage time.

After adding hot water to the press, let it steep for 3 to 4 minutes before you press it. After that, you can sit down and enjoy one of the best-tasting cups of coffee you?ve ever had.

Special Attachment for Hot Cocoa

Primula Classic 8 Cup Coffee Press Classic design French press consists of a narrow cylindrical glass jug, equipped with a lid and... a stainless plunger, which fits tightly in the cylinder glass beaker and has a fine wire mesh acting as a filter. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the glass jug. A French press requires coffee of a more coarse grind than that used for a drip brew coffee filter, such as produced by a burr mill grinder rather than the whirling blade variety, as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. Coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee's flavor and essential oils, which would become trapped in a traditional drip brew machine's paper filters. French pressed coffee is usually stronger and thicker and has more sediment than drip-brewed coffee. read more
