A French Press is an easy way to make a wonderful cup of coffee at home, without devoting a large portion of your kitchen counter top to a bulky coffee maker. You simply add course ground coffee, pour hot water on top, let steep for four minutes, press, and voila! Piping hot, delicious coffee; even better, french presses do not use conventional paper filters. Never again will you have to face the morning sorrow when zero filters are to be found in the cabinets (or contribute to the two million paper coffee filters disposed of each day!). The three cup model will produce enough for essentially one serving of coffee, while the eight will allow enough to share (maybe ;)).
