    I have heard so many good things about French press, I wanted to try it. No idea how to use one, but figure I’ll figure it out. Any tips would be surely appreciated though!

    Very coarse ground coffee.

    The better your grinder, the less "mud" you'll get in your coffee when using a French press. The particulates in presspot coffee is one of the things that gives it more "mouthfeel".

    I use a Stanley french press when camping. I had one for the house, but being the only coffee drinker I didn't use it much.

    I'm pretty smitten with the clever dripper. I might buy an aeropress too. John raves about his.

    I got mine! Thank you @anthonycastorena2014

    You can’t go wrong with Benchmade. I love the Hogue Knives mat. And it will be nice to have some ground coffee so I don’t have to travel with a grinder. All very much appreciated!

    Thanks again, and an obligatory pic.

    For larger store bought brands I'm all about Peet's! The Big Bang variety is awesome. Last grocery trip was to a store that didn't have Peet's, and I settled for Pike's Place by Starbucks (I hadn't tried it for a while) ...big mistake. Peet's makes way better roasts. :thumbsup:

    Pike’s is good if it is fresh.

    The UKPK was a perfect choice, not a knife I've ever tried! Pretty impressed. :thumbsup:

    I tried many expensive/fresh coffees to replicate the typical coffee I experienced in Italy and Austria to no avail. I gave up after 7 years, and now just use Maxell House in a dripper... and like it.
