Modern design French press consists of a narrow cylindrical glass jug (equipped with a lid and a stainless plunger) which fits tightly in the cylinder glass beaker and has a fine wire mesh to act as a filter.
Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving it to brew for a few minutes, and then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grinds at the bottom of the glass jug.
A French press requires coffee of a coarser grind than that used for a drip brew coffee filter, such as produced by a burr mill grinder rather than the whirling blade variety. A finer grind will seep through the press filter and into the coffee.
