  1. Thanks for the A2A, but not sure if I can provide the answer you’re looking for. French press is one of the few coffee drinks where you can do pretty much anything you like, as long as you don’t grind to fine (because it slips through the filter if you do).
    You can use any type of bean, no matter how long ago it has been roasted (I’m not saying old coffee beans will taste nice, though). When grinding, you don’t have to be exact either, as long as you keep the grind coarse enough for the filter. The amount of coffee grind you use affects the taste (more coffee = stronger).
    After you pour hot water over your coffee grind, you can have it sook for just a minute (which will make weak coffee), to about 6–8 minutes (which makes for strong coffee), as long as you don’t let the water cool off too much.
    Then the final step, pressing down the plunger. The harder you press, the stronger your coffee will end up, however, it could become more bitter. Press it lightly and it’s weaker.
    You see, there are many variables. And even so, changing one of the variables just slightly (like grinding a bit coarser) won’t lead to a terrific change further on in the process. Unlike espresso, which is very delicate, there’s not much you can do wrong when making French press. On the other hand, that also means that altering the taste of your coffee isn’t very easy.
    The soaking time is a variable which will affect taste the most, along with how many ground coffee you use. However, in the end, for most of the times the end result will always be delicious!

  2. A French press coffee maker was created to produce more delicious coffee than other standard techniques. The plunger is cylindrical in form and has a bottom. When you insert the plunger into the container, it is forced against the container’s bottom. This results in a continual motion for pressure buildup. This pressure drives water through the ground beans, allowing the tastes and oils to be extracted into your cup.

    The shape of the pot is the most noticeable distinction between a Double-Wall French press and most other coffee makers. The huge metal mesh bottom is intended to extract as much flavor from your coffee grounds as possible.
    The French press is designed in such a manner that you may experiment with your coffee and develop your own mix. This is due to the fact that numerous variables are involved, ranging from the grind of your beans to the number of grounds you use. You can find the right formula for your taste by experimenting.
