Post The Benefits of French Press Coffee
The Benefits of French Press Coffee
by: Mark Ramos

If you have never tried a French Press style of coffee, you may be seriously missing out on a world of flavor. Many people are new to using a French Press, which means that the only brew method that you are familiar with is an automatic coffee maker. If this is the case, make sure that you open your mind to a French Press, which will give you the opportunity to taste a full and robust coffee brewed without a filter.

So many coffee connoisseurs prefer to use a Coffee Press because it is filterless, which will leave essential oils in the final coffee product. You will have more full and complex flavors within your cup of coffee, and it will be more fresh than you can imagine. Even if you are someone that normally likes a lighter brew of coffee, the Coffee Press would be the ideal choice for that style of a roast. As a rule of thumb, lighter roasted coffee is often preferred to exhibit clearer flavor characteristics. Even though many people popularly loved a dark roast, a light coffee roast is not overly roasted so that all of the unique flavors are still clear. There are many quality dark roasts on the market, but on the flipside, numerous companies also choose to dark roast subpar coffee beans to mask their actual flavors. The point of the matter is that if you want to taste the true flavor characteristics from a specific coffee growing region, light roast is the way to go.

If you do brew a light roast of coffee in an automatic coffee maker using a paper filter, many of the essential oils will be removed. A Coffee Press will provide you with a different point of view because the coarse coffee grounds will be pressed to the bottom of the device, and they will be separated from your coffee product. There is no filter involved whatsoever, so if you want to truly detect the actual flavors within a specific type of coffee bean, that is the way to go. As an example, you may be drinking a light roasted coffee for the first time in your French Press, and you would be able to clearly taste musky, earthy, or even nutty undertones as a result.

Keep in mind that when you use a French Press, you will not use paper filters, which makes it an environmentally friendly alternative. It also does not use any type of electricity, so your French Press may be something that you want to take with you when you are camping or traveling to a distant hotel. We all know how terrible hotel coffee can often be with the tiny 4 cup coffee maker that they give you, so save yourself the trouble and use your Coffee Press instead to guarantee a delicious cup of Joe every time!
