Coffee connoisseurs believe French press makes the best cup of coffee possible. We at Bean Commerce think so too! With normal drip coffee machines, the paper filter will take out a lot of the flavor and oils of the coffee. The French press has no paper filter leaving all of the flavor and oil for you to taste in your coffee. French press also leaves behind tiny bits of coffee grounds that help spread the flavor. The French press can look very intimidating to use but it’s a very simple way to make coffee.
