If you have ever dreamt about having a french press, classic percolator, or even the newer trendy cold brew carafes, then Vonshef is the brand for you. They make a number of classic coffee makers as well as regular brewing coffee pots. In this article, we are going to tell you a little bit about the classic French press as well as show you a few of Vonshef’s eye-catching coffee brewers.
What is French Press Coffee?
Just in case you are not familiar with the French press method of making coffee or espresso, let’s go over some basics. The French press, which was originally patented by an Italian inventor named Attilio Calimani, has been around for a long time. Over a hundred years of designs and modifications have led to the modern design which consists of a carafe that has a lid with an integrated plunger.
Although the process of using a French press is very simple, there are a few tips that will help you make the perfect brew every time.
Fresh Ground Coffee: Fresh ground coffee is always the best and it is very important for good French press coffee. Make sure you use a coarse grind, approximately the consistency of kosher salt. If the grounds are too fine, your coffee will be bitter. If too coarse, the brew will be too weak.
Hot, But Not Too Hot: Use hot water, but not boiling. Boiling water can scorch your coffee. Instead, aim for 199 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit.
Warm Carafe: Be sure to warm your carafe before you start. Pouring your perfectly warmed water into a cold carafe will cool your water too quickly, resulting in a weak brew.
How To Brew:
Start with a dry carafe and place your grounds in the bottom. The amount of grounds you need will depend on the size of your carafe, so make sure you check your owner’s manual. Once the grounds are in place, pour in just enough water to cover the grounds and give it a stir to evenly wet the grounds, then put the lid on the carafe to keep the heat in. Allow that to sit for 30 seconds, then go ahead and add the rest of your water. Give it another little stir, replace the lid, and wait for 3.5 minutes. Once that time is up, your brew is ready to drink! Simply press the plunger down to collect the grounds in the bottom of the carafe, then decant your perfectly brewed French press coffee.
Expert Tip: If you are not going to drink all of the coffee at once, you will still want to remove it from the carafe. If the coffee remains in with the grounds it will continue to brew and become bitter.
If this sounds like the brew for you, then here are a couple great Vonshef carafes for you to consider as well as a couple percolators, just in case those are more to your liking.
