The French Press is one of the most well-known coffeemakers ever made. The French Press has been around since the 1850s. You are just as likely to find one in a grandparent’s kitchen as you are in the kitchen of a ‘coffee connoisseur’. The French Press has gone through many redesigns to get to the model we have today, but history has a habit of repeating itself, the French Press design we have today is one of the original designs. It only took about 100 years to realise it was the best design. French Press is one of the most classic methods of coffee brewing, and if you do it correctly, it can produce a great tasting cup of coffee! It brings a new level of ease and functionality to brewing the perfect cup of coffee, but there are a few common mistakes that would surely make any ‘coffee connoisseur’ shudder. So, avoid these mistakes and you’ll enjoy the perfect cup of Velo coffee!
