FRENCH PRESS

Easy to brew and super consistent, the French Press is very reliable. Its classic and well-engineered design hasn’t changed much since its invention in 1929, and it’s perfect for making multiple cups of heavy-bodied coffee

 

French press is a great method for people who like to add milk to their coffee. With its strong body and sweetness, it resists tasting washed out and helps emphasize the creaminess of dairy (or non-dairy, if you prefer).
