We love French press. One of the main benefits of brewing coffee in a French press versus a standard drip pot, is that more of the essential oils of coffee end up in your cup instead of a paper filter. As a result, more oils produce a richer, fuller flavor. Also, more of the good ingredients, such as antioxidants and nutrients, end up in your coffee.
Grounds used for French press coffee must be larger and rougher. These grounds tend to release more caffeine. A serving that’s higher in caffeine may also have health advantages.
