Just purchased the SterlingPro Double Wall Stainless Steel French Press and I'm wondering how much water I should put in if I want to make an 8 oz cup of coffee? It says to fill to the top, but I assume that's for a 32 oz. cup of coffee. Is that correct?
If I scoop in 2 tablespoons for a single cup, should I only put 8 oz of water in?
I just purchased this French Press [link]
And I primarily use Cafe Bustelo and it worked perfectly, not ONE spec of grounds in my Coffee! (Used to use Keurig before this :P )
I use the solid wall sterling pro. It holds the heat a bit better for the second cup. Like the double screen. Had a bodum before, which worked well.
Looks good, but I would go with this one at half the price and better reviews [link]
I purchased this one on a recommendation from /r/buyitforlife . I've had it for a few years now and it's still going strong.
I can't really "show off" but i started my frugal coffee brewing career this week after decades of being a tea snob (I still drink it daily, just wanted to expand my pallet into coffee). I have never bought anything at a Starbucks, and when I walk by that place just to sit in the A/C for a bit, I think those people online are all a little crazy. my coffee drinking recently started when there was a half off pricing mistake on this great french press on amazon,
and i already had a cheap water boiler from my tea drinking.
i didn't buy a burr grinder (yet) as the better electric ones are crazy priced even on craigslist,
but i did find a nearby high turnover roaster who grinds whole bean to order - it's an always crowded NY gourmet shop that's been around for 30 years, with regional beans at $6-9/LB - which I know is dirt cheap. I tried their Costa Rican and Colombian beans already, and will go back for their Kona and Jamaican beans soon. from my tea drinking I learned it's important to first get familiar with what regions you favor, then refine your choices from there.
