I can't find a coffee press with a decent filter, french or otherwise
all end up giving me muddy coffee
the only thing that seems to work is paper filters but the aeropress is too fiddly
the metal press/filter doesn't seem to work at all. why do people use them
the only things that work is paper filters, rubber round the edge to form a tight seal or the weird fabric filter thing thats in coffee machines
anyone got a portable one that fricken works
I have the metal filter for the aeropress and it's neither fiddly nor muddy.
It's pretty much the best cup of coffee outside of fancy espresso machine coffee at a cafe (if the barista isn't a fuck up idiot that can't pull a good shot).
Also so easy to clean aeropress, fucking hate how tedious the French press is.
paper works fine the only issue is it runs out
also I don't know why we don't have a permanent filter like this on a press. would be ideal
Probably because most people who are buying pre-ground are brewing with a drip machine or perhaps moka pot. You should be grinding fresh anyway.
Are you talking about Lavazza pre-ground btw? I find it hilarious how it says "also suitable for french press" on the bag when it's a fucking espresso grind most of the time. You can kinda use a fine grind in a french press if you adjust your steeping time down from the usual 4 minutes. You might want to skim off the grounds that float on top before you plunge to reduce the amount of silt in the cup.
>aeropress is too fiddly
hardly anymore so than a regular french press and its a lot more forgiving

why does it have to be a press? if you want s/t with the taste of a french press and the taste of a regular filter go for a clever dripper
