The Best French Press For Any Coffee Drinker
A French press may look like an old-fashioned contraption to prepare your morning cup of coffee, but it is not all that complicated. You measure out your ground coffee—which will taste better if you freshly grind it—and hot water, combining both in the cylinder of the press. Stir, let steep, depress the plunger, and pour for one of the best cups of coffee that you can brew at home. Ditch the coffee makers that use paper filters and throw that complicated single-serving monstrosity in the dumpster, all you’re making with those is waste and watery coffee.
Bodum Brazil 34-Ounce French Press
Bodum is known for its range of French presses, offering many for different budgets and tastes in style. The Brazil is the basic, function-over-form French press from Bodum.

Using a stainless steel mesh filter, you will get a rich cup of coffee, without the waste of a paper filter. For a great cup of coffee, measure grounds and water, pour into the carafe, stir, place the plunger at the top of the grounds, let steep four minutes, press the plunger down, and serve. Great coffee made easy.
AeroPress Coffee And Espresso Maker

One of the benefits of an AeroPress over a traditional French press is that one can use finely ground coffee and not end up with a cup of mud. The plastic of the press is phthalate and BPA free, and its compact size makes it perfect for camping or kitchen use. Find the coffee-to-water ratio that you find tastes best, and keep on brewing.
