Bodum Travel Press Demo

Plagued By Mechanical Coffee Maker Malfunctions I Turn To The Bodum Travel Press For My Coffee Needs-Here’s A Demonstration Of The Bodum Travel French Press At The Dock

The thing about a french press is that by not having the paper filter you get a richness and you can see tiny pools of the coffee oils once you pour your coffee from the press into your mug.  A paper filter removes these oils and robs you of the best cup of coffee possible.

I’m really enjoying it.  If you do get a french press or travel press be sure to grind your coffee on the coarser side so you don’t get the sediment that would go through the screen with a fine grind. If you are having your coffee ground be sure to let the person grinding it know what type of device you will be using to prepare your coffee so they will grind it to the proper coarseness(is that a word?).
