5 Reasons You Need A French Press

It’s one of the most popular coffee makers on the market, but many people still aren’t sure how to use the French press correctly. If you’re interested in using this versatile and delicious method of making coffee, here are 5 reasons why you need a French press in your kitchen.

1) The French Press is Eco-Friendly

Traditional coffee makers use paper filters, plastic parts and non-recyclable k-cups. While they make coffee very quickly, they also waste resources and create a lot of trash. But not with a french press! This method makes coffee without any disposable parts. Just toss out your grounds when you’re done, wash out your french press with warm water and soap, and you’re good to go! There is no filter or k-cup or anything else that needs to be thrown away after each cup of coffee. It’s completely reusable and recyclable, which means it’s great for the environment.

2) The Coffee Taste Better

Coffee aficionados will tell you that while drip coffee is great, no one brews better coffee than those who use a french press. While I can’t say I’m an expert in all the things about coffee, I know what tastes good and there’s nothing like pressing down on that plunger to release your caffeine fix. What’s more? A French press doesn’t make you wait! Most people feel impatient when they have to sit around waiting for their cup of joe. With a French press, you can walk away from it until it’s ready. The best part about using a French press is that you get full control over how strong or weak your coffee tastes by controlling how long it sits in water before being pressed down with the plunger.

3) A French Press Gives You Full Control Over Grind and Water Amount

A Grinder and an espresso machine may produce higher quality grinds, but if you don’t know what you’re doing it can be difficult to achieve consistency. With a French press, all you need to do is adjust your grind size and water-to-coffee ratio accordingly. If you prefer stronger coffee, use a finer grind and more coffee grounds; for weaker coffee, use a coarser grind and less grounds. It couldn’t be simpler!

4) No Paper Waste

If you’re like most people, your coffee maker sits on your countertop—and that countertop is covered in coffee-related paraphernalia. There are tons of tools, mugs, cups and filters and each of them has their own little cupboard or drawer dedicated to it. When you use a french press you get all of that stuff out of your kitchen. One huge benefit to switching to a french press is that there’s no need for paper filters!

5) The French Press Fits Any Lifestyle

No fancy or complicated machinery here. The French press is a tried-and-true way to make delicious coffee at home. It’s easy to use, it’s durable, and it doesn’t require electricity or plugs. There are five reasons you need one in your life, especially if you like an extra kick out of your cup in the morning. Check them out below in
