"How To" I Needed This Weekend

I used this site to find out HOW TO MAKE FRENCH PRESS COFFEE yesterday. We had a bag of Starbuck's Thanksgiving Blend and a french press I had never used and it seemed high time to try it out.
A French press is cylindrical glass urn fitted with a filter plate on a plunger. You put the grounds in the bottom of the urn, add hot water, let the coffee sit a few minutes, and then press the plunger down, separating the coffee from the grounds. Many aficionados believe the French press produces a far richer coffee flavor than the traditional drip method.
