French press


The French press goes by various names around the world, press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger, cafetière or сafetière à piston. Developed by Italian designer Attilio Calimani in 1929.

A cylindrical pot with a plunger and built-in filter screen that presses hot water through ground coffee, that’s the simple beauty of the French press, method of choice for many the world over, creating an earthy, rich taste in the cup.  

The secret is all in the grind, choose medium, with uniformity and consistency throughout.  Very coarse grinds may clog the filter, while very fine grinds will pass through the filter, muddying the results.
