French Press

Everything about the topic in an overview

A French press, also known as a press pot, coffee press or coffee plunger, is a coffee pot in which coffee is brewed. The coffee grounds it creates are pushed down by the plunger with sieve that is attached in the French press lid. Unlike when preparing with a filter, this type of preparation preserves essential oils in the coffee, which makes the flavor more varied and intense than with traditional filter coffee. This is an immersion process and not a pour over.
