Making a French press cup of coffee puts you in control. You have the advantage of control over how strong that you prefer your coffee to be. When the coffee grinds are fully immersed in a French press the flavor becomes much fuller from the extraction of the coffee beans. This is because when coffee beans are roasted they also release coffee oils. Where the oils hold the richness by immersing the oils in the coffee. Giving a very bold and well-balanced flavor.
To start, make sure that the water temperature is 190-195F, or around 95C.
Use a thermometer to test temperature levels to prevent off-flavor or scorched tasting results.

It is best to use only coarse pre-ground coffee which helps to prevent grains from slipping in or plugging up the mesh filter. Never use fine ground coffee because it can plug up the screen and can cause a safety hazard during the pressing down on the plunger.
