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.
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.
These types of coffee makers are usually styled similar to the vacuum style coffee maker. They consist of two separate stacked pits but in this case the grounds and cold water are usually kept together in the same container. When you`re using the stovetop the final brewed coffee will be in the second container. What the lower container holds is the water as well as the ground coffee and the filter basket. The lower container is usually heated properly which then forces the water past the grounds. The coffee then gets siphoned from the lower container to the top container. Because of the unique shape of this coffee maker it is usually preferred by people who like a unique look for their coffee makers. Stovetop coffee makers aren`t usually required for people who need to serve a large group of people. Another thing that should be noted when preparing the coffee is that the water shouldn`t boil. This usually leads to coffee that tastes bitter.
French press makers require hot water from a separate source while a vacpot which is called a siphon brewer or vacuum brewed coffee uses hot or cold water depending how one wants to use it. Another that requires hot water may not be considered a coffee maker but the coffee dripper that has a filter in it and sits on your cup or mug does make coffee. The most common maker is a drip coffee maker. This is true whether it is a pour over where hot water is poured over the grounds or hot water is pumped up from a side source and allowed spray water over the grounds. These makers have two shapes of filters known as the cone and the basket shape that has more drip area. Some drip makers offer a low electric heated hot plate while others offer radiant heat. Drip makers come in closed sealed and open coffee dispensing. Closed and sealed dispensing systems often close off the flavor and aroma while the coffee is being made.
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.
Coffee maker differences can be seen in many ways just by looking at them but there are differences that can`t be seen as well. One obvious difference that can be seen is in the types of coffee maker such as French press vacuum drip coffee maker pre-heated water espresso maker percolator and urn. Other obvious differences can be seen in size by the number of cups of coffee they make at a time. Not only the maximum but the various amounts of coffee they will make at a time. One last obvious difference is what the coffee is brewed into. These include one that has an internal thermal holding area such as in a brew station where coffee is poured by pressing a lever so it goes into a cup mug thermal mug carafe of some kind or a thermal carafe or container of some kind.
