Most drip filter makers function in the same simple manner: a paper filter sets in a basket (usually plastic) which holds the finely ground almost powdery bean. Cold water is poured into a chamber where it is heated and poured over the grounds. The brew is quickly extracted into a waiting carafe usually glass or thermal steel . The process is very simple and extremely reliable. Some have proclaimed that automatic drip coffee makers produce "off-tasting" flavors in the cup. I feel that those people need to either change or modify their coffee grind do not use reusable filters or should clean the drip maker as per the manufacturers directions.
Beans for use in a French press should be of a consistent coarse grind. The use of a hand coffee grinder or manual coffee grinder gives a more consistent grind than the whirling blade variety of electric grinders. The ground should be more coarse than that used for a drip coffee filter as a finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. A French press is also more portable and self contained than other makers. And make a great solution for a travel maker in such cases as back packing or camping. Despite the name the French press is not noticeably more popular in France than in other countries. In most French households coffee is usually prepared by drip brewing using an electric coffee maker and paper filters.
