I have the chance to get a French Press coffee maker from my employer for free. I have no experience with them, very little idea on how they work, or if there is a certain type of coffee I have to use in them. I am not a big coffee drinker during the summer, but drink a decent amount during the...
I'm new to good coffee (home roasted, brewed in a french press). And would like to expand my experience a little. I was wondering what other people's preferred brewing method is if not using a french press, and if using a french press is your preferred method of brewing, what is your...
So i'm not sure how many of you are familiar w/ this technique but if you are you know how delightful it can be (i assume). Basically, take a nice big puff of your pipe and instead of just blowing it out or snorking, barely open your mouth and let the smoke float out while simultaneously...
You need bread twice as thick as normal sliced bread. Fresh spongey/poofy-type bread is required - the best is challah or egg bread but Sunbeam Texas BBQ Slices works great. Stale bread or coarser, very dense bread isn't going to cut it.
In a low sided bowl beat or whisk together:
1 1/2 cups...
We all like them but we like some better than others.
I had a smallish glass Bodum model with a heavy brown plastic handle for about 20-years - loved it. Brewed like a charm. Light, well-made. Easy to clean. Nice cork jobbie to sit it on. Good screen with a good seal. Then Mrs. Moo put...
Seems like a certain french swimmer got a heavy dose of humble pie. After saying his team would crush the americans, he LOST!. Michael Phelps continues on to acquire the 8 Gold medal count. HEY FRENCH< I wish you had
Balls when Germany was kicking your hindparts. F the French!
I was following the instructions that came with the french press, and was disatisfied with the slight underlying bitterness. I was blaming my own home-roast for that, and avoided the darker roasts, believing that to be the root of the problem.
I also experimented with the coarseness of grind...
Can you tell a difference between coffee prepared in the press and a coffee maker?
With this do you need to get a coffee grinder?
I'm not a coffee connosiuer, just enjoy it, especially with a good cigar
(I like using creamer also....sorry all you hardcore coffee people)
Any advise on this...
Roasters Running Amok has dragged me away from my beloved bean blending and espresso machine for these past several months and kept me nailed in front of the vacpot, presspot and mokapot. Its not been all bad - got me back in touch with my roots - you know, remembering how the poor people...
Long story short, I was setting in a storm water presentation today and had a thought. This product the guy was telling us about was for seperating organics from water runoff.....like you guys care. Anyway one of the filters used a reverse of common practice of gravity filtration. The water is...
Here's a direct link. Figured it might be a good deal for you coffee guys?
Looks like you can get an additional beaker for $10, but why not just buy a whole 'nother one for the same price!
So, how much coffee do you put in a French Press for the best results?
We get asked this time and time again by our customers and from the coffee semi pros like yourselves on the different boards I post on. So here it is, once an for all.
Multiply the size of your French Press in ounces by...

2 – 3 fresh sage leaves
1 t. fresh chopped rosemary

4 thick slices of bread
4 thin slices red onion
1 avocado, halved and sliced
Extra virgin olive oil
I have a Bodum Chambord 8 Cup French Press to go to a new home. It is in great shape with a new glass insert. No dings, rust, or other problems. I'm letting this go because of my ham handed problem of breaking the glass insert repeatedly.
This unit sells retail new for $29.95 then you would...
When making French press coffee, do you have to make a full capacity batch, or can you short it by, say, half? I'm wondering because I'd hate to go so small that I'd have to repeat the pressing process for company, but I don't want to have to make more than I can drink every morning.
Maybe it is the name or maybe, just maybe I am doing something wrong cause I think every pot I have made from my roasts taste like :BS.
So this is how I do it... Pick a bean and roast I feel like, weight 55g (also has been played with)of beans and grind course in Virtuoso Conical Burr Mill...
At the end of WWII a local Parisian radio station sent a reporter to interview Pierre, France's greatest fighter ace of the war.
"Pierre," said the reporter, "tell our listeners about your most dangerous mission of the war."
Pierre said, "On zee most dangerous mission I was attacked, from the...
