French Press

TIP! You have to use great water to get great coffee. Try using bottled water for your coffee.

Consider using a French press for brewing rich, flavorful coffee. Drip-style coffee makers have paper filters that can absorb all the flavor. Rather than relying on paper filters, a French press uses a plunger system to extract the flavor from the beans inside a glass, metal or plastic carafe. The oils say in the brew, providing a flavor that is richer.
