A French coffee press is a device for separating the coffee solids from the liquid coffee. It works by pushing a filter down through the coffee, pushing the solids down to the bottom of the pot.

Call it a French press, a Bodum or even the old fashioned Cafeolette. The right grind is very important. Forget the ground to powder stuff you put into your autodrip.

They must be at least 3 days old so you do not get the brown sludge floating on the top (it is called bloom and appears only when you press beans ground from coffee within 2 to 3 days from use.

Use a coarse grind of coffee in a French press device, but use a fine grind in a drip coffee maker.
