Coffee for a french press should be ground coarsely, or about the consistency of wet sand.

Automatic coffee makers are much more convenient, but french press coffee makers are more 'real' coffee. It really depends on preference and what you are looking for in a drink.

There are two types of coffee grinders: with burrs and with blades. They work totally different. Grinder with blades actually doesn't grind. It cuts coffee beans again and again until wanted consistency is achieved. Burr coffee grinders crush coffee beans between two surfaces (burrs). With a burr coffee you can achieve much more even grind, thus better coffee. Many burr grinder offer a wide range of grind settings, making them suitable to grind coffee for various brewing systems such as espresso, drip, percolators, French press, and others. Many burr grinders, including almost all domestic versions, are unable to achieve the extremely fine grind required for the preparation of Turkish coffee;traditional Turkish hand grinders are an exception.but the blade grinder can not offer this function.

Some alternatives to Keurig coffee include a french press, local coffee shops, coffee drive-thrus, coffee beans by the bag, and a regular coffee maker. If you only need one or two cups of coffee and you want to make it at home, the french press is the best option, because you can easily measure out the amount of beans you want in your coffee, depending on how strong of a roast you want. It is also easy to know how much you are making because most french presses have measurement lines on them in ounces. This is a quick and relatively cheap option, it only takes 3-4 minutes and costs 10-40 dollars to buy a french press. Then all you need is some coffee beans and hot water, and you've got yourself a great cup of coffee.

This question is inherently too vauge to be answered. Different coffees, different roasts, different preparations are all variables to this question. Will you be making: * Drip coffee * Espresso * French Press * Turkish * Percolator * etc... Do you like your coffee strong or weak? What roast are you using? Caffeine content is strongly dependent on roast and bean preparation. Check out the Coffee Geek website and other coffee related sites for more information. Also try a French Press for a different experience from drip coffee or espresso. Some hot water, coffee and a French Press and wallah, you are stylin like Will Smith in "Hitch".

I very much prefer to grind my own coffee. Whole bean coffee stays fresher, longer, and tastes betteer freshly ground. I bought a coffee pot that grinds the beans right before brewing, and it makes my coffee fresh and full of flavor. I hardly ever buy pre ground coffee, it doesn't taste as good.

The absolute best cup of coffee has to be made with a french press. A french press is basically a pitcher that has mesh screen plunger attached to the lid. To make coffee using a french press, you must remove the lid/plunger and pour fresh coarsely ground coffee into the bottom of the press (The amount of grounds used depends on the quantity you wish to make, and how strong you want your coffee to be). It's important that the grounds are coarse. If the grounds are too fine, your coffee will turn out to be gritty. When your grounds are in the pitcher, simply pour hot water into the pitcher, getting all the grounds wet. The water should be just off of a boil, so about 190-200 degrees is ideal. Let the grounds steep for about 4 minutes, then insert the plunger into the pitcher and slowly push the grounds all the way down to the bottom. Since there is no filter involved in making coffee this way, oils that are important to the flavor of the coffee stay in your coffee instead of being trapped in the filter. French press coffee will retain a thin layer of crema at the top of the pitcher much like a properly pulled espresso shot.

Most serious coffee drinkers prefer to use a Bodem French press or coffee maker as opposed to making it with hot water and an instant mix. People who are in a rush and do not care so much about flavor as they do saving time are more likely to use instant coffee.

Put water on the stove to heat. Grind whole coffee beans in $20 electric grinder (expensive burr grinder is completely unnecessary). I fill my grinder to maximum capacity, but my coffee professional friend uses twice (!) as much. My press is 32 oz (large, but not extra large). Pour ground coffee into press. Slightly before the water boils, pour it into the press, over the ground coffee. Make sure all the ground coffee gets wet. START YOUR TIMER! After exactly 60 seconds, stir the coffee/liquid sufficiently to fully break up the 'crust' which has formed on the top. [The purpose of this is to get the coffee grounds to sink to the bottom, thereby making it easier to 'press' the coffee.] After exactly 120 seconds more (total brewing time 180 seconds - NO MORE!) press the coffee (i.e., put the lid/sieve on the press, and press it slowly down as far as possible). Pour the coffee immediately. If you are not serving it at once, use a thermos. Explanation: you only need to 'brew' the coffee for 3 minutes (not 4), because all the coffee is 100% immersed in near-boiling water. Stirring is only necessary to make 'pressing' easier. Pouring off the coffee eliminates additional 'brewing,' which would only add negative extractions at a greater rate than positive extractions. Note: If the inevitable grounds in your press coffee annoy you, simply pour the coffee through a paper coffee filter. It will only take a few seconds to 'clean up' your coffee. I don't agree with you that (expensive burr grinder is completely unnecessary). we all know blade grinder does cut the bean into pieces with an ununiform size. Also, large heater during cutting can deteriorates the taste of coffee. While burr grinder grind the coffee to a fairly uniform size. expensive grinder always equipped with a high torque motor which let the grinding speed lower. that means less heat will be produced. less deteriorations to the coffee taste

For all of the coffee lovers out there, there are a lot of options when it comes to choosing the right coffee maker. There are many different kinds of coffee makers, designed for different needs. Some are simple, like the single-cup coffee maker, or some are much more complex, including timers, alarms, and automatic starters. For those who drink large quantities of coffee at a time, coffee makers and coffee pots come in different sizes to suit all of your coffee needs. Here we explore some of the options when it comes to coffee makers, helping you to decide which is right for you. Most people choose to go with a simple drip-style coffee maker. These kinds of coffee pots have a basket where the grounds go, as well as a place to put water. You can make as much or as little coffee as you want, adding more or less water to suit your needs. The coffee maker then heats up the water, drips it through the coffee grounds, and thus brews your pot. The coffee is ready in minutes. Drip-style coffee makers come in many different sizes, ranging from single-cup pots to ten cups or more. Some even include grinders, so you can purchase whole coffee beans and the machine will grind them for you. This helps keep the coffee tasting fresh. Others have timers, so you can set an alarm and the coffee will begin brewing for you at whatever time you choose. The coffee pot will stay hot for several hours until an automatic system shuts off the heating element. Another popular coffee maker is the french press. These are small, glass containers that allow for you to brew the purest, freshest pots of coffee. To use the french press, you first place the coffee grounds in the bottom of the container, then pour heated (not boiling) water into the press, and allow it to steep. Then you press down the filter attached to the lid, and your coffee is ready to be consumed. The grounds are separated with a filter so you do not consume them. This kind of coffee maker is extremely popular.

A brand new Cuisinart Grind and Brew Coffee Maker is available from many different retailers and will range in cost from around $129 and $199 depending on options such as Thermal Carafe.

Have you ever sat at a French cafe, sipping one glorious cup of flavorful coffee after another while watching the world go by? Few of us have, but all of us can remember sipping that perfect cup of coffee. The rick, dark color, the scent of fresh-ground beans, the rich flavors and aftertaste--few things are better! Unfortunately for most of us, our daily experience of coffee is much different. We set the timer on our giant coffee-making machine, pour in some pre-ground coffee from a can and some tap water, and go to bed. We wake up yawning, take a shower, check on the kids, and then pour a cup of warmed-over, slightly stale, probably weak coffee. Does this sound like your daily routine? Coffee drank in this way fails to be satisfying. Coffee experts often note that any coffee that tempts you to add milk or sugar is probably not good coffee. They will tell you that quality, fresh-ground coffee is like fine wine, with hints of fruit, nuts, and wood roasted into the beans, creating unique flavor profiles and aromas. They will also tell you that the primary way to unlock this fresh-ground goodness is by using a French press. French presses may sound fancy, but they are actually quite simple. After grinding your coffee beans, you simply place the coffee in the bottom of the container, pour hot (not boiling) water over it, let it steep for 10 minutes or so, then press it down and pour. The act of pressing pushes the coffee grinds to the bottom, allowing you to pour a fresh cup of hot, steaming coffee into your mug. The secret is that French presses, unlike coffee makers, keep the coffee in contact with the water for a significant period of time, allowing the qualities of the ground beans to sink into the water (like tea). The result is a much richer and more aromatic coffee drinking experience. In addition, French-pressed coffee usually contains more caffeine than its brewed cousin, meaning you can get a bigger lift from one luxurious cup, instead of pounding down multiple mugs in order to obtain an energy boost. Try a French press today, and get that Cafe in Paris coffee experience for yourself!

The Budom Chambord 8 cup coffee press costs between $39.99-$50.00(All prices are in US Dollars). The price depends on which retailer you decide to purchase from.

The Bodum French Press is currently retailing for $53.50 on amazon. There are additionally models by Bodum that are slightly cheaper and retail for around $30.

Sure wish I knew! I hope somebody answers. After scraping as much as you can into the trash, there are still a lot of grounds clinging to the vessel - too many to be wahing down the drain on a regular basis - unless you enjoy paying $150 for a plumber. sounds a little crazy, but I dump out what I can into the trash can, then put water into the French press, stir and pour down the toilet.

As a general guide use 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of ground coffee for every 8 ounce cup of fresh brewed coffee. If using a large drip urn, about a 1 lb package of fine grind coffee and fill container to the 40 cup level with fresh clean cold water.

Any type of coffee pot can be used to make home ground coffee. However, there is a minor debate as to what kind of machine is best. A French press is suggested to be used to make "the perfect cup of coffee". The apparatus steeps the coffee much like a normal coffee pot, except instead of pouring it out of the container, one presses it out of the machine. It is suggested that coarser grain would be more beneficial as other grains would drip sediment from the maker, into the cup.

If you are starting with coffee beans, grind them in a coffee grinder before starting. Open the top of the coffee maker. If there is a used coffee filter, throw it away. Add a clean coffee filter and fill it with coffee. A good amount to keep in mind while adding coffee is 2 Tablespoons of ground coffee per 6 fl. ounces of water. Some hotels provide coffee filters already filled with a set amount of coffee. Fill the coffee pot with as much water as you will want coffee. Pour it into the back of the coffee machine. Close the lid of the coffee machine, plug it in, and flip the switch. It will brew the coffee automatically. Don't forget to turn the coffee machine off after you take the coffee out, as it could start a fire.

Coffee (Coffea-arabica) is used for many purposes (such as taking baths in it, collecting coffee beans, making statues out of coffee grind,ect,ect) but the main use of coffee is as a power source. the caffeine in the coffee causes faster neuron connection in our brains. This is useful for fast response situations, but not for memory recall, as you will not be able to pay attention after only 4 cups. To gain the power of the bean, you must grind it, put it in a filter and pour hot water over it. Coffee is the devils brew, the addiction of even more people than beer (equally good in my mind). But be careful how much you take or you will turn into a shaking, low attention span, talkative person who seems to be set on vibrate.

The reason coffee generally tastes better when produced from conical burr grinders is due in part to the conical burr being able to grind coffee beans at much slower speeds. The theory behind this is the faster the coffee bean is grinded, the more friction is produced, this in turn results in a greater amount of heat being emitted that can comprise the perfect cup of coffee.

no cholesterol in coffee
