Frieling French Press
While it may take you out of the normal espresso routine, there is something that is just exquisite and relaxing about sharing a pot of French Press coffee. One beautiful way of doing it is with a French Press Pot like this Frieling. It’s stainless steel with wonderful lines and a double wall construction to keep the coffee warm. The 23 ounce size should be able to handle a pair of mugs for that weekend coffee. A course grind is recommended for any French press pot, and not the fine espresso grind that you are used to. I often mix in some espresso roasted coffee into a more mildly roasted blend to get the type of punch that I like in a cup. Because of the brewing method of pouring near boiling water over coarsely ground beans, mix gently to wet, then steeping for up to 4 minutes, before an easy and steady plunge will deliver excellent coffee. When decanting, leave the very end behind to leave any fines that may pass the screen. The result is full-bodied delicious coffee.
