|My Bodum Press Pot Family|
If you compare the filter to Press Pot brewing, a Press Pot requires a coarser grind than the drip brew coffee, because finer grounds will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. Likewise will the finer ground coffee tend to brew a lot quicker than a coarse grind in a Press Pot, which will leave a over extracted cup of coffee with a lot of sediment.
How does it work?
Its actually quite simple, all you need is to place your coffee into the brewing pot and add water. The water and ground coffee will then merge and just give it a stir and leave it to brew for a few minutes. You control the brewing time by pressing the plunger to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom of the beaker and thereby stopping the coffee extraction.
