French Press coffee is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to brew coffee and is very popular world-wide. The French press is also known as a cafetiere or coffee press. It is very simple in design containing a cylinder-shaped beaker and a plunger. The beaker can be made of various materials, but glass is the preferred material since it will not absorb coffee. The plunger has a piston with a handle, rod, and a mesh. This mesh allows liquid to flow through it but not the larger coffee grounds. Since the mesh acts as a filter, unlike some other coffee makers, you won’t need to spend money on paper filters.
As you can see, the French press is a very simple device and using it is very simple as well. Therefore, there aren’t many things to look for.
Best French press coffee Maker Features
French press makers made of a variety of material including glass, plastic, and stoneware. If you are looking for something that will last a long time, stoneware, stainless steel, and borosilicate glass carafes are the types of things you want to look for. The carafe should be hard to break and the construction of the mesh filter is important if you want something that will last you for a long period of time.
Double screen filter
One nice feature that the Sterling Pro first introduced is the double screen filter. By using a double filter, it will prevent coffee grounds from sneaking through the filter and into the coffee.
Easy clean up
If you are brewing coffee often, you want a French press that is easy to clean. One of the most important things to look at is how easily the parts come apart. Once they are apart, you want to make sure that they are dishwasher safe and easy to put back together.
