Top Reasons Why We Love the French Press Method

July 30, 2018

Flavorful & Rich

One of the reasons why I enjoy french pressed coffee is that a little bit more oil from the coffee beans makes it to the final cup which gives it a richer and fuller taste.

Steeping = Success

French press allows for steeping. When you get a good cup of tea, you use bulk tea that steeps for several minutes depending on the type of tea. The end result is a mouth-watering cup of tea. The same is true for coffee through a French press. Because the grounds steep instead of filter, the coffee tastes better.

Coffee-Tea Combo

It’s perfect for making hot coffee and tea, but also doubles in the summer for brewing iced tea.

Customized Taste

Allow it to brew for about 4 minutes for a lighter coffee and for about 7-8 minutes for a strong coffee.  I like mine somewhere in the middle, so I usually allow my coffee to steep for about 5-6 minutes.
