  1. Better taste, the ability to control how long it brews, and the ability to control the temperature of the water. I prefer the taste when it’s brewed at around 180 degrees F although some experts recommend around 190 – 200 F, but none recommend boiling temperatures (212 F). Many electric coffee makers brew at over 200 F which is not optimal.

  2. Using a French press allows more of the coffee’s natural oils and very fine particulates to come through. These oils are usually filtered if you use paper filters. In fact you can usually see the oils swirling on top of the coffee after brewing with a French press.
    The result is a stronger and more full tasting cup of coffee. Some people love it, some people hate it.

  3. Probably the number one benefit for the average Joe is that they’re cheap. You can get one for fifteen dollars, less if you buy used.
    They’re also dead simple to use. No fancy pouring techniques or anything. Just dump in coffee and hot water, wait four minutes, and press.
    They make really good immersion style coffee. If you’re the kind who likes a heavy body, lots of aromatic oils, and a touch of sediment, then French press is for you. You can get brighter, cleaner cups from a pour over, but a lot of people prefer the boldness of French press. It is by no means an inferior method of brewing coffee, despite its low price point and ease of use.

  4. I agree with the other answers. I would like to add that the French press method comes pretty close to the way professional coffee tasters prepare their coffee. I personally like the intensity of French press coffee.

  5. A French press makes good coffee. It doesn’t require buying paper filters or pods. Making the coffee is a less fussy exercise than pour-over.
