5) French Press

The French Press provides a balanced, even extraction, like the pour over, while not allowing gases to escape.

Yama Glass 6 Cup French Press | $35
Purchase: Amazon

How to Make French Press Coffee (6 cups):

  • Add 35g of coarsely ground coffee
  • Fill halfway with almost boiling water (205-degrees), saturating all grounds
  • Set timer to four minutes
  • At 1:00, stir the water and grounds with a wooden spoon
  • Fill to top with hot water
  • Cover but do not press
  • At 4:00, press plunger all the way
  • Immediately pour into a mug or Carafes; otherwise, the coffee will continue to extract and become bitter

6) Aeropress Coffee Maker

The Aeropress method is similar to the French Press. The Aeropress is great for making great coffee while traveling or camping. You can purchase it here.
