Some say that the French press is the best coffee maker for making simple coffee. The coffee that comes out is lighter and has more aromas than a simple filter coffee.
For the preparation, it simply requires ground coffee in larger pieces than for a filter coffee maker, to prevent them from passing through the filter. It takes about 7 to 8 grams of coffee for a cup.
This ground coffee is placed in the bottom of the container to which is then added very hot water (above 90 ° C and which has been brought to a boil). The whole is mixed and then the mixture is covered to allow it to infuse for 4 to 5 minutes.
Then push the piston and hold it at the bottom of the container. If the brewed coffee is left in contact with the beans, it can become very strong and a little bitter.
