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.
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.
