Hi:
Does anyone use a french press coffee maker?
If you would,which brand do you use?Pro and cons
please?.I travel by myself and I'd like to replace the big items for the more compact one.
Will I need to buy a particular brand of coffee,
or any brand and ground will do?
Many thanks for replying......araucano

look up Boudom products, they have it all. I grind my own coffee for the press, course grind is the best grind as it does not pass through the screen very much. The press if kept clean is great for tea also. Search coffee presses.

We have one in the RV that we use when it is too early to turn on the generator and coffee maker.

I don't know the brand but I would imagine any will do ok.

The coffee is whatever decent brand is on sale.

I've never had that great luck with getting good coffee out of a french press. The flavor just seems to come out more bitter than the same coffee through a good drip machine.

I recenlty got the Coleman drip machine. It makes good coffee (w/o using generator) but it is slow, very bulky, and I wish the decanter would have been made unbreakable.

We've been using a Bodum for two years now and love it. Makes the best coffee I've ever tasted, easy to clean. We picked ours up at Target.

The best coffee, IMO, is made using the Melita Coffee Filter system. I've used on my sailboat at sea, and in the M/H.
