While they’re not as popular in North America as espresso machines, they can provide an excellent alternative for brewing dark-roast coffees at home.

Let’s explore some interesting facts about French press coffee that will help you decide whether or not it might be worth investing in one for your own kitchen!

The French press coffee maker is a simple, inexpensive way to make delicious coffee

It has been around for over 100 years and was invented in France

The design of the device allows it to be used with coarse ground or finely ground coffee beans

You can use any type of hot water – filtered, distilled, tap water – as long as it’s not too hard or too soft

Cleaning up is easy because you just need to rinse out the plunger and filter before putting them away in their protective case

The French Press Coffee Maker creates a richer-tasting cup than other methods do because it doesn’t let the grounds touch the boiling water until they’re fully saturated

The plunger separates the coffee grounds from your coffee so you can pour a cup without any sludge on the bottom of your mug

There is less caffeine in French press coffee because, as some of the caffeine leeches out into the water, it becomes trapped within the silt at the bottom of the carafe

If you want to brew larger batches of java that will last throughout the day or through guests dropping by, then use more ground coffee and 8 cups (2L) of water instead of 4 cups (1L) of water

Don’t forget to stir with a wooden spoon to fully saturate all those tasty solids stuck on top before plunging

A French press coffee maker is great for making flavored coffee without the mess of other methods. Just add some flavor directly to your ground coffee before you brew, let it sit for a few minutes, then plunge

The French press is one of the best ways to make an iced coffee because there aren’t any paper or mesh filters that will fall apart in ice.
