Coffee connoisseurs know that one of the best ways to extract flavor from beans is with a French press coffee maker. Patented in 1929 by Attilio Calimani it has come a long way since the metal screen and rod variety. These days you will find presses that incorporate a glass bottom with a plunger and lid that is usually made out of plastic or metal. If you love coffee and have never used a French press you do not know what you are missing.

Unfortunately cheap French Press coffee makers can give you too much sediment. If you have ever had this happen you know how it can ruin even the best Gourmet Coffees at It is important to use a coffee mill that will give your beans an even grind. Remember to brew your coffee for at least two minutes and try not to drink the left over sediment in the bottom of your cup.
