  2. Brewed Coffee
    Been away for a while but recently been back checking out the new web design - all change! Been mainly concentrating on brewed coffee during my period of absence..... I'm thinking of purchasing a French press for work as it's a quick and convenient way to make a brew for 2-3 cups with...
  3. Brewed Coffee
    Hi all, What's the difference in tasting notes between flat and conical grinds for brewing? I'm in the market for an electric grinder that will be dedicated to V60, Chemex and Aeropress, as well as the occasional French press. I see that one of the key decisions to make is whether to go with...

    Off on holiday in a couple of weeks and will be having a French Press-brewed coffee each morning. As I won't have a grinder is there going to be much difference between.... a - buying my usual French Press beans but ground b - buying my usual beans and grinding a load at home the day before...
  5. Show Off Your Setup
    Not so much to show off at the moment being a humble French-presser at the moment, but I'm really happy with the new setup as you can see below... You can just about see the Kinu M47 grinder there at the back. It's the most awesome piece of coffee kit ever, and my first grinder. I'll post...

    Hello everyone, Thanks for having me on the forum. I'm just getting started on the coffee journey. A recent trip to Milan opened my eyes to espresso and the delights of affogato! Up until then I was vaguely aware of the French press cafatieres appearing in supermarkets and my main coffee...

    Hello everyone, Thanks for having me on the forum. I'm just getting started on the coffee journey. A recent trip to Milan opened my eyes to espresso and the delights of affogato! I'm so thankful for all the advice on this forum - I'll post more about myself in the Intros section...
  8. Brewed Coffee
    I just bought a Bodum Chambord 8 cup (1 litre). I will probably be brewing 1-2 mugs of coffee most of the time, but I bought this size to be able to brew more occasionally. I completely new to french press, and I was wondering if there are any downsides to brewing a much smaller amount of...
  9. Brewed Coffee
    Hi All, I'm just wondering if people have good procedures for drying their spent grounds from a French Press? I'm currently rinsing the FP out into an Aeropress with metal filter just to dry the grounds (and pressing to get rid of the water), it's a bit fiddly, are there simpler solutions? The...

    I'm loving my espresso machine and grinder - Alex Duetto and Mignon, will soon (hopefully) be a Niche - but it has one obvious disadvantage which is that I often have about 6 or 7 people to cater for at once. I'd like to do something else like a french press for this situation, but I don't want...

    Northern Irish coffee fan here, have lurked for a couple of months and am finally making a post. Missed the roast day when ordering beans so having to wait until Thursday or Friday, currently going mad in a coffeeless house. Awaiting an Ethiopian and a Guatemalan. Current set up is a plastic...

    How Illy coffee beans(not pre-ground) results if breweved with one of pour-over methods or Frech Press?
  13. Introductions
    Righto! I've lurked for a while here, and figured I should probably register... I've made several unsuccessful forays into decent coffee before - an I'll fated French Press experiment, an incredibly unsuccessful V60 test that produced nothing but acid, and a few passable brews with an...
  14. Brewed Coffee
    So I'm starting to give up with my aeropress I just can't get along with it. I only use it at work and I'm sick of trying different methods and getting rubbish brews. I use a Hario dripper at home and I love that but it's not practical for the office so I'm weighing up my options. Any...

    Hi everyone, Have you ever tried Espro Press? What do you think about the results? As far as I know, it can also be used with paper filters. So, I am curious about that what wil happen if I use it with Chemex/V60's paper filters(after the sizes adjusted)? I have read that it ends up as a very...
  16. Brewed Coffee
    Although it is not as popular as other techniques, it is worth to talk about because it is the first step of the beginners and highly valued by experienced coffee lovers. Thus, what are the beans that you find successful in the French Press, which countries' beans can be brewed succesfully with...
  17. Brewed Coffee
    Afternoon all ! I've used a Bialetti daily for the last couple of years. Whilst generally happy with the coffee i'm making, its not the easiest of things to clean. Thinking of trying a French Press. What can I expect? Similar standard of coffee? More consistent results? I used to use a Gaggia...

    Ok - first of all some apologies. I've done searches and haven't found the answer somewhere else on the site - but that doesn't mean there isn't one lurking somewhere. Secondly, this may all seem a bit basic to many of you. Third - it's a bit on the long side. So, I'm new to this site after 45+...
  19. All Grinders & Hand-Grinders
    Hi all. Have been lurking for a while, trying to make a decision on a first grinder. It seems most people here are discussing grinders for espresso making, which makes sense at the process really shows up a lousy grinder! I will mostly be drinking press coffee, at least to start with, then...

    *Now just forewarning, this does have my dumb sense of humor in it, so keep that in mind* I've loved both coffee makers, the French Press and the Aeropress. I also know that they both make drastically different types of coffee. One a real crisp and smooth cup while the other gives it a strong...
