    Hi, Tej!
    Thank you very much for this training! You see I wasn’t able to use the french press right and the coffee was not the one I like to drink! What I did was that I put the coffee on the plunger and … silly me! Now I ‘ve learned my lesson thanks to you!
    Best wishes,

      Hi Rebecca,

      Glad to hear that you found the post helpful. One of the reasons I wanted to write it was because many people I know were not able to get the coffee the way it should taste using the French Press. One of the biggest things overlooked is waiting 4 minutes to let the coffee steep.

      Thanks for taking the time to comment. Hope you have a great weekend!

    Hi Tej,

    This article is important for all of us who have struggled with this. You make it so easy. Now that I have properly learned to use the great french press, I spice up my coffee with a dash of cinnamon or pumpkin spice and it’s delicious. Would you recommend using the french press for cold brew?

      Hi Edwin,

      Glad to hear that you found the article helpful. Yes, you can absolutely use the French Press for cold brew. I would be interested in knowing your experience in making cold brew using the French Press. Please drop me a note to let me know.

      Thanks so much for commenting.

    Hi Tej

    I am back for more of your coffee tips! This one was good. I am drinking a cup of French press coffee right this minute. I often wonder why the taste is variable, I haven’t ever heated up the jug and the 4 minute seep is never done on purpose. Just for interest sake, I had another cup of coffee and I really did notice the difference in taste. We learn every day! I liked the other readers tips of adding cinnamon or pumpkin spice. You should do a little infographic/recipe download with the instructions and variations for plunger coffee. I would stick it up by my kettle.

      I’m glad that you were able to notice the difference in taste. French press brewed coffee is one of my favourites. 🙂

      I like your idea about the infographic/recipe download with instructions for brewing french press coffee. It’s something I will try and add in the future.
