What do you like about using a French press? In your experience, are there any drawbacks when it comes to using a French press? unsure.gif

Not really. The only thing I can think of is that it probably uses more coffee beans per cup then say a drip machine. Also consider guests I suppose - if you consider that it takes say 5 min to make two cups (a larger press) then a big group might take awhile where as a drip machine can make somewhere up to 12 cups in 20 min.

I'm thinking of taking one to work where we only have expresso that I water down. At home, the wife ended up purchasing a Koneg and before that I used to water down expresso from her machine.

I use a 1 litre French Press at home.

I have a .5 litre metal version that travels with me.

If I can't find my tea pot, I also use it for steeping herbal teas (think Chinese Medicine)

I only use it on the weekends, as it's a double task thing for me (heat water, wait for steeping)

I usually roast and grind my own beans though, so I'm a bit off the norm.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

9. Is drinking coffee made with a paper filter healthier than drinking boiled coffee or other types of coffee?

Coffee contains a substance called cafestol that is a potent stimulator of LDL cholesterol levels. Cafestol is found in the oily fraction of coffee, and when you brew coffee with a paper filter, the cafestol gets left behind in the filter. Other methods of coffee preparation, such as the boiled coffee common in Scandinavian countries, French press coffee, or Turkish coffee, are much higher in cafestol. So for people who have high cholesterol levels or who want to prevent having high cholesterol levels, it is better to choose paper filtered coffee or instant coffee, since they have much lower levels of cafestol than boiled or French press coffee. Espresso is somewhere in the middle; it has less cafestol than boiled or French press coffee, but more than paper filtered coffee.
