For episode 13 of Top Brew the coffee podcast, Eric and I reviewed the French press — also called a press pot, coffee press, coffee plunger, cafetière (UK), сafetière à piston or Cafeteria — for the first time.
Eric’s family drink French press coffee almost every day. It is one of the gold standards of press coffee. It’s worth noting that it was this press that opened our eyes to better homebrewed coffee. Without the French press, we wouldn’t be the fussy coffee drinkers we are today.
