- Good coffee can't be rushed
- I make all my coffee in a french press, so naturally I wanted one for my camp coffee. Like any other press, you have to use it correctly. Press down s-l-o-w-l-y and you won't get backpressure trying to shoot up around the filter. Pour s-l-o-w-l-y and gravity will keep grounds at the bottom. Drink the last few sips s-l-o-w-l-y and any little bit of grounds that got through will stay in the bottom of the cup. If you want, stir the coffee before pressing the plunger and most of the grounds will sink on their own. If used correctly, this press will give you a great cup EVERY time. There will always be some sludge and grounds with a french press, but this one performs just as well as the fanciest Bodum you'd use at home. For a whole pot, the amount of grounds that got through was less than 1/16 teaspoon, which is comparable to any high quality home-use french press on the market. My only gripe is that pouring can be drippy, but that is fixed by pouring s-l-o-w-l-y and tipping the cup, like pouring a beer. This is a great piece of gear if you just have a tiny bit of patience. After all, you're in the wilderness to relax, so what's the rush? Also, you can break down the plunger (seperate it from the lid completely) and use all that free space inside to store a Porlex or Hario hand grinder and beans, and nest a cup inside or outside of the pot.
