If you like your coffee rich, flavorful and strong without spending hundreds of dollars on an espresso machine, try a French press. The best French press Iâ€™ve tried is the SterlingPro.
Certainly the coffee that this French press makes is not comparable to an espresso machine, but it is elixir compared to any drip coffee machine. Compared with a coffee machine, using this French press is a quicker and much more silent process.
Drink Coffee, Not Grounds
It takes less than 5 minutes to make your morning coffee â€“ just put a tablespoon of coffee grounds for every 4-ounces of coffee, add hot but not boiling water (96 degrees Celcius if you prefer to be precise), attach the lid and push down the plunger slowly (for better flavor extraction).
The problem I had frequently experienced with many a French press is having coffee grounds in the coffee. What makes this French press the best is its double screen filter. Two screens meant that not even one speckle of coffee ground will remain in the coffee when you pour. No more spitting out grounds from the mouth like a stone age barbarian.
For those weaning off plastic items, this SterlingPro French Press is a great option as it has a dual-walled, heat-resistant glass body. Therefore, you can be assured that there will be no harmful chemicals such as BPA, phthalate, PVC, or polycarbonate reacting with the hot water you pour in.
Lasts with Proper Care
Does it keep the coffee warm for long? No. The carafe is made of glass after all. Just drink the goodness up as fast as you can.
Since the beaker is made from glass, some extra care is needed â€“ never pour boiling water (even though it is heat-resistant) to avoid thermal shock and do not, I repeat, do not use metal spoons to stir in the French press. It isnâ€™t needed anyway, just pull up the plunger and push it slowly back down if you want to stir things up.
What I love about the SterlingPro French Press is its stylish chrome housing, it looks so classy! Thereâ€™s no need to clean this housing as the glass carafe can be taken right out, and the filter can also be removed from the plunger for washing.
Thanks to one of the reviewers, Iâ€™ve found that the easiest way to wash the filter is to plunge it up and down in the French press with water. The pressure will dislodge any remaining grounds within the filter screens easily.
For affordable espresso-like coffee, I highly recommend the SterlingPro French Press. This #1 bestselling coffee press on Amazon is an affordable French press that is great as a Christmas or birthday present. You will also be happy to know that there is a pair of extra screens thrown in with the price. Click here for more details on this great coffee maker: SterlingPro French Press.
