Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Ideal coffee grind for a French Press?
You do want a coarse grind for french press coffee. The key is letting the coffee steep for long enough to make a strong brew. As a general rule, if you are at altitude, then you need to add time because boiling water is cooler. I have good results with a 5 minute steep time. (Note that I am at 5000ft, so 5 minutes may be too long for you.) Be sure to use a timer, and compare different times to find the optimal brew. You can make good tasting coffee with finer grounds, but they may clog the filter, or if they are too fine, they might pass through it altogether, giving you a rather gritty pot of coffee.
Does this french press brew loose leaf tea well?
Yes, absolutely... here is how we recommend brewing hot tea as a tea press. - Clean off coffee residues from mesh filter, if significant amount consider a vinegar & water mixture. - Prepare amount of water needed for the cups of tea going to be poured as soon as the first steep of tea is complete. - Add 1 teaspoon of your favorite tea leaf per 8 ounces of water used. If stronger flavor is desired, add more tea, not time. - Lower plunger halfway to bottom. The idea is not to compress but to use the plunger as a sieve. Compressing tea leaves may produce bitter results. - Pour off all tea. Don't leave any tea steeping in water for an extended period of time. - Re-steep tea leaves as many times as you find they produce a tasty cup.
How do I disassemble and clean the filter assembly?
Let the carafe cool first; otherwise, the metal parts are very hot to touch. After you remove the press from the carafe, clasp on to the bottom metal piece of the rod (opposite end from the black knob) with your right hand while spinning the plunger disk to its left or away from yourself. If the metal is too small or slippery to grasp, try using a rubber dish-washing glove or something similar to get a good grip. Don't hold & unscrew from the rubber knob. Rinse off the grinds before washing. Sometimes I merely rinse with water and rub the oils off by hand and set it on the counter to dry before putting it all back together, and sometimes I use the dishwasher. I put the filter pieces in my dishwasher's flatware container and put the lid on the top rack. Remember the rod moves up and down, so don't place it where the rod will drop down and interfere with your dishwasher's blades. I also wash the carafe in the top of the dishwasher or simply rinse with water and air dry. Just remember the coffee leaves oils behind, so you don't want to just water rinse all the time.
