I do not have any favorite methods ... I think I'm going to bring up a french press or two and see how they work... I want to test a glass press against the thermal stainless steel presses .. it can be quite chilly in the moring in the mountains even in the summer ... Iwant to see how the steel presses work out.
Boiling water should be around 192 F ... 1 degree for every 500 feet above sea level.
Also ... I would like to test some hand powered grinders ... mills ... any ideas for a brand. I plan to bring lots of coffee !!
