I've been using a French press for about a year. I had been using a blade grinder, but I switched to a burr grinder. My question is this: how much coffee powder should there be in press? How much should I allow. The burr grinder does a much better job of ensuring a uniform grind, but there is some dust. Short of sifting the grinds to get rid of the dust, is there anything I can do? Should I even care? I notice some dust in the coffee after I've poured it.

Thanks for your help!

Hello ...

There will always be some grind in the bottom of the cup and in general there should be less of this with a burr grinder. Try different settings on your grinder if the grinds seem excessive to you ... mostly there should be a tad of grinds at the bottom of the cup ... other then that they should not be noticeable until you finish the cup.

Good Day ...
