French Press

The French press, also known as the press pot or
cafetiere, is a full immersion brewing method.
Coffee grounds sit suspended in brewing water
for 4 minutes before a plunger is pressed, filtering
the coffee using a wire mesh. The full immersion
process creates a thick body, partially due to actual
particulate suspended in the product.
A coarse grind is used to compensate for the long water exposure,
and to prevent grinds from getting through the
coarse mesh. French presses come in many sizes,
and are ideal for serving larger groups.
