But did you know that the best way to make coffee is in a metal French press? I’ve been making coffee for years now, and I’ve never tried making coffee in a metal French press, but I wanted to try it out for myself.
So here are some tips and tricks on how you can make the perfect cup of coffee in it.
All about the metal french press:
Metal French presses are the best choice for making coffee in the morning. The reason why is because they help you preserve the taste of your coffee. If you were to use a plastic French press, your coffee would taste like plastic and won’t be as strong.
Not only that, but French plastic presses tend to retain heat. If you use a plastic French press and get distracted at any point, the coffee will continue to heat up in your French press. It results in weak-tasting coffee on your part!
Other than that, metal French presses are easy to clean. I find them easier to clean than their plastic counterparts.
You can just run your dishwasher or washing machine with some hot water, and you’re good to go. Besides, it’s effortless to use the French press.
How to make coffee in a stainless steel French press:
Before making coffee, you first have to make sure that your stainless steel French press is clean. Next, you need to take out the filter in your French press and wipe it clean with a paper towel. It’s best if the paper towel is wet to don’t leave any rough edges on your filter.
Next, put the filter back in and pour water into the French press. Make sure that you only fill up about half of the measuring cup.
After the measurement, you can add more water to your French press. Make sure that you only fill it up 2/3 of the way up the measuring cup so that your coffee remains strong.
Next, let your water sit for about 30 seconds (or up to 5 minutes if you want a stronger-tasting cup). After that time, pour in your coffee and enjoy!
Make sure that you use 100% Filtered Water for your French press.
All About Stainless Steel French Press:
Stainless steel French presses are an excellent choice for making coffee because they help you preserve the taste of your coffee. It is because stainless steel cannot absorb the oils from your coffee as real metal does.
As a result, you will get high-quality coffee every time that is not altered by the oils of your coffee.
Stainless steel french presses are the latest on the market, as they have been gaining popularity lately, and for a good reason.
They do not trap odours or flavours as French plastic presses can because of their neutral and non-reactive surface.
In a stainless steel French press, you can brew a batch of coffee that has fresh-brewed flavours. It is possible to enjoy the aromas of your coffee because stainless steel can withstand high temperatures.
In addition, it is easy to tell when the coffee is finished brewing because it will not change in colour as aluminium or copper do. The exterior of a stainless steel French press will also not rust or tarnish, giving you longevity and value with your purchase.
Do you have to preheat a stainless steel French press?
One of the most common questions people ask about their French presses is, “Do you have to preheat a stainless steel French press?”.
It is an entirely legitimate question, as we all want to make sure that our coffee tastes good every single time.
The answer to this question is that you do not have to preheat your French press. You don’t have to preheat it because the water you put in it will absorb some of the heat from the coffee? Therefore, it results in coffee that tastes the same every single time!
By following these simple steps, you will be well on your way to enjoying the best tasting cup of coffee that you can.
The best part about your coffee is that it won't get altered by plastic or other materials that might change the taste of your coffee. Instead, you will enjoy the same robust taste every time you make your coffee.
