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.
In most cases the larger type of manual drip comes with a glass carafe which is then used to serve the coffee. The drip part is a cone shaped basket where a filter is placed. The basket is then filled with the desired amount of grounds. For stronger brew usually a generous tablespoon per cup is recommended. The basket sits on the carafe or( coffee pot) or on a single mug. The hot water is gradually added to the basket creating very fresh cup. You have to be very patient when adding water as too much water will flood the drip cone causing a unwanted mess of grounds and water all over the place.
