    Do you agree on what he says about French Press making?

    In this youtube video, James says that after waiting 4 min, then, wait another 5 to 7 min. and then, do not press all the way down and pour your coffee and enjoy.

    what do you think?
    for me, I like my coffee bit hot, not lukewarm coffee.... what do you think?

    When I did press I ground more fine than most do as I like a slurry, not clean, crisp, crystal clear notes like some try to accomplish. I'd grind, dose, pour in the water, stir a bit and let it steep for 5 mins, then press, pour and start consuming.

    Hoffman is like any other in that he has his beliefs in what works for him, no better/worse than what others do. Ridiculous how so many people like worship what he/others say, but maybe they can't figure out things for themselves. Reminds me of those going to churches in that they rely on somebody telling them what they should do to 'make things right'... yeah not in my world, lmao. Drink on! Coffee that is...
    I'm a legend among my own kind... you my friend are just a legend in your own mind. Later!

    The one in my attached picture is called ESPRO press, it has seventeen patents on it and costs 4 times a regular French press. I call this American ingenuity regardless of the coffee it makes...
    So if you believe your way is better, make a product out of it!

    I am glad you ask: I am working on a pressure pulsation dampener to reduce flow fluctuations in super automatic coffee machines right now.
    Guess where I got the idea?
