French Press Brewing Method
The French Press brewing method is simple, affordable, quick and produces a great cup of coffee. The French Press doesn’t use a paper filter, so the oils in the coffee grounds are not absorbed, which in turn leaves behind all the wonderful flavors. It’s as simple as letting the grounds steep in the hot water for 3-5 minutes, then pushing the plunger down and just like that you’re ready to pour your cup of java. The resulting cup is rich, creamy and full-bodied.
Hario has beautifully crafted this Double Glass Coffee Press which offers a full bodied coffee experience. Most of the oils are still present in the coffee after brewing in the press, making this great for single origin coffees. The olive wood accents on the Coffee Press add a touch of class and luxury to this beautiful piece. The double glass coffee press is comprised of high-quality heatproof glass, olive wood, stainless steel, and leather, making this a lovely centerpiece for any coffee bar.

French Press Tips to Avoid Bitterness
Be sure to buy quality whole bean coffee and grind it just before use, remember it all starts with good coffee
Over-extraction is the main cause for a bitter cup. We recommend you decant the coffee immediately after its done brewing to avoid this issue.
An uneven grind can contribute to bitterness. Be sure to use a burr grinder to ensure a nice even grind.
Do not use boiling-hot water, as it can scorch the coffee and cause bitterness. The ideal brewing temperature is around 200°F.
Thoroughly clean your French Press after each use.
