Earlier on another topic Henk wrote about using a French Press brewing his coffee. Some people look down on the French press.

You see, in my opinion there is nothing better to deliver the truest essences and full flavors of fresh-roasted coffee than the French press.
The reason is simple: there is no filtration process. None. All of the natural oils that give your coffee its flavor stay in the brew and don't get filtered out.
French press is a brewing method and, in many ways, it is the method that gives me the most control.
It is quite easy to use. Grind your coffee coarse, put it in the press and pour water that has cooled a few degrees off boiling directly onto it. I boil the water first and leave it to cool down while I grind my beans. Stir with a wooden spoon to get good contact between water and coffee and allow it too steep for 3-5 minutes, press and pour.
There's not much to a French press. You can get a very serviceable model that will last you for years for cheap. Since there are no filters, the press is a green and sustainable option. If you don't have one, why not give French press a try. ;)

Very true.

One of the cheapest, if not the best, options out there to get the perfect cuppa.
