The French press also known as a press pot coffee press coffee plunger or cafetière is a brewing device popularized by the French. Its operation is simple and can produce a stronger pot of coffee than some other types of java makers. The press pot consists of a narrow cylindrical container usually made of glass or clear plastic equipped with a lid and a "plunger" also made of metal or plastic which fits tightly in the cylinder and which has a fine wire or nylon mesh acting as a filter which can be cleaned and reused.
The French press coffee maker was created in the 1930`s. This sort of coffee maker is usually created quite simply but produces thick and rich coffee. Using this coffee maker usually entails filling the container with a single tablespoon of coffee that is coarsely grounded as well as hot cup of water. You should then place a plunger handle into the pot. Placing this handle in the pot aids heat retention and after doing this you should slowly depress the plunger handle as well. The mesh of the plunger will then make sure that the grounds are pushed to the bottom of the canister; this separates the grounds from the coffee. After this is done then the coffee can be served directly from the canister. Any coffee that you brew should be served immediately because most of these canisters are made of glass and they lose their heat quickly. Stainless steel press pots can be bought for better heat retention but they are usually less popular than glass canisters.
