French press or coffee pot? I just re-kindled my love for coffee recently and found myself in line at Starbucks glancing over and noticing they sold French presses. I have worked with them in restaurants but never tried it so I told my mom I wanted one. Lo and behold, she won a very nice one from work a few years back and gave it to me (she doesn't drink coffee).


Verdict: French press all the way! Quick, classy, easy, creamy rich deliciousness. My method is two Tbsp. per measured cup with one Tbsp. for the pot. Enjoy!

Using a French Press

You should use 3/4 cup hot water to each 1-2 T ground coffee. I usually just use 1 T, I don't want to be bouncing off the walls after I drink it. LOL Hope that helps you. (08/21/2007)
