There’s nothing like a freshly brewed cup of coffee in the morning. Unfortunately, the stuff that comes out of your electric drip coffee maker doesn’t taste as good as it could. The solution? Make it in a French press instead.
French presses make better coffee because they let the ground beans steep in the hot water, allowing full, even flavor extraction. And since there’s no paper filter, the coffee retains the beans’ oils — a key component to the taste of the final cup. Here are five great French presses that will make any coffee drinker happy.
One of the top French presses on the market is the SterlingPro press, a simple device that reliably makes great-tasting, full-bodied coffee. Not only does it look drop dead gorgeous, but unlike most French presses, it uses a double-screen filter, so you don’t have to worry about finding coffee grounds at the bottom of your mug.
It’s also easy to take apart and clean after you’ve recharged your batteries with a steaming cup of paradise.
