I'm an instant coffee peasant thinking about going to a press. If I could afford it, I'd go with a Keurig. I'm presuming a press is easier for cleanup than a drip right?

Also, I can only drink decaf, so is a press a bad idea because it might extract too much caffeine?

You can feel like you truly belong. To what, I don't know, but you can feel like it anyway.
It's one of the more inferior common brewing method.
Caution: fragile.
Must be attended: can't leave to brew while you go do something else (shower etc). Water needs to be boiled, poured, watched, timed, plunged and brewed coffee poured out otherwise, the grinds get overextracted.
A large phin brews better coffee without any of the downsides. Pour and forget. Simple.

Agreed, to a certain extent. I found one very pic related labeled, 'Starbucks' at a yard sale, prolly could have gotten it for a quarter/UDS.

Poor lady didn't even know what she had on her table until I educated her and pointed out that it was as yet still unused. Talked her out of selling it from right under my own nose!

So is french press the way to go for taste? I forgot to ask that.

Best cup of coffee for your money and after a while the sludge on the bottom of your cup is normal

Get a chemex pot instead.

Some coffees taste really nice in it, but it isn't my go to method. The biggest thing I like about it is it is hands off. It's good for lazy mornings and mornings I am so groggy I can barely function.

I recommend an Aeropress. It's a really forgiving way to make coffee. It's fucking ugly though.

It's all personal preference. There are dozens upon dozens of ways to prepare coffee, and they all taste different. The only way you can know is to try a press pot and decide for yourself.

I meant coarse enough when talking about grinders. I am literally retarded.

OP 2013-10-31 01:24:41 No.4909242
Thanks for the replies, guys. I'm really not up for buying an expensive grinder and grinding my shit. So if I just use a fine grind coffee from a store, will it not work/be undrinkable? I can deal with a little sediment.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 01:44:53 No.4909292
You will want to get a coarse grind for french press. If you want to / can only use a fine grind, you should consider something else.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 01:52:04 No.4909304
I don't understand, what is the benefit of using presses or a chemex brewer or anything other than a simple instant coffee machine?

Stupid amerifat here, pls help

Anonymous 2013-10-31 01:55:13 No.4909311
I got a $20 french press from target and it works fine. I don't get any sediment in the bottom of my coffee because the wire mesh is super tight.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 02:01:53 No.4909330
Most coffee machines brew coffee like literal shit. To make a very long story short, almost every single coffee machine on the market is actually incredibly bad at making coffee for a multitude of reasons. A French press or Chemex ensures you have more control over all the factors that make good coffee.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 02:03:26 No.4909334

You had better have a certified illness or I will find you and I will beat you until your statement is literally true.

But I agree with your opinion on the Cafetiere.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 02:04:25 No.4909339
So if I like my coffee as it is with a machine making it, I should like it even more if it's made with a french press or chemex?

I have an espresso pot, and it's literally the best coffee investment I've ever made. Brews everything like a dream, except for a bit of sludge with turkish/indonesia superfine grounds. Need to watch out for spills, and brew on medium/low heat for best effect. Only con would be it makes very little (4 Italian espresso cups = 1 regular latte), but if you like Americano or only brew for yourself it's lovely.

It's subjective. I know people who prefer instant to my french press coffee. Just try them and if you like them drink them.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 02:19:29 No.4909372
Yes! You should. It is a little more time and effort but very worth it.

And we call those people fucking plebeians.

agree with this guy - Much prefer these stove top percolators to french press. Also, is OP trolling about only drinking decaf?

Keurigs are disgusting. Nobody should own a Keurig. It's glorified instant coffee.

You get more control over your brew, when you brew manually you can set the grind size, brew time and water temp. Many drip machines and capsule machines don't go hot enough and over or under extract leading to weak and sour or bitter coffee.

Also, different methods tastes different. A coffee press is completely different to a chemex which is completely different to espresso.

They have larger ones. Personally a 6 cup is enough for three people as they like to dilute it with milk anyways.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 09:11:53 No.4909926

There are plenty of reasons not to own a keurig, but they're far from disgusting. Especially when compared to instant coffee.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 10:31:24 No.4909970

You want a Bodum Columbia. Trust me. You really want that one. The single-cup is $70, but it's worth every penny.

It's fucking air-insulated and made of steel. You drop it in the sink and it doesn't break. I got it after the second or third glass one broke.

You just leave it there, come back half an hour later, and your coffee is still piping-hot to pour. It's a marvelous thing. There should be no other on the market. It's that awesome, except for the plunger's handle. It's caned. All of my aspie rage goes to it.

Anonymous 2013-10-31 10:41:16 No.4909982
Do you leave your coffee sitting in the brewing vessel for half an hour?

It's not supposed to be that bitter you know?
