It would depend on the press. Mine is glass and plastic, so no, I couldn't do it with mine. But I've seen all metal ones, so I would say that you could do it with those. But I find the carafe works well. I got my coffee carafe at Goodwill for a dollar. And the carafe works really well as it will keep stuff hot for hours. It's no big thing to pour it into the carafe.Originally Posted by angelic_one2002;3735036;
But I'm telling you what, nothing tastes as good as French Press coffee. I think that the water is in contact longer with the coffee, so you get a richer, stronger, better tasting flavor than through a drip machine.
We made coffee as part of my Civil War life class. We put the coffee and water in the pot together and let it come to a boil and then strained it through a cloth so as not to get the grounds in our cups. I thought it would be awful, but I have to say that was some of the best coffee I ever had. Such a rich coffee flavor as the coffee and water are together longer.
