I don't drink coffee, but my husband does and he has a french press maker.  You place the coffee in a glass container, then pour water in and stir, then you lower the press attachment and then brew for 20-30 seconds.  Then you pour it into the cup.  His makes just one cup and coarse ground coffee works best.  There are larger containers available.  He likes it because it is easy, and he can make just one cup after dinner.

Hi Nancy,The french press coffee pot is a plunger pot.It is glass,with some sort of frame which is removeable for cleaning,The plunger has a built in filter which will last for years.I boil my water in a tea kettle.I put 1/4 cup of coarse ground coffee in the bottom of the pot and add the hot water,stir and place the plunger on top of the pot but don't plunge for up to 4 minutes.Slowly plunge.The coffee is always smooth and not bitter.This is made the way tea is brewed,no cooking just steeped,this probably seems like a lot of work but it is worth it.I no longer use my regular coffee pot it  has been retired.I hope that you get the chance to try this some time.Some coffee shops make french press.You can also make espresso with the french press

I've seen it advertised, but never used one.  Sounds interesting though.

Thanks gale .... That DOES sound like a lot of work Laughing
Every night before I go to bed I fill my little pot with water, a filter and some Folger's Special Roast.
In the morning I just click it on and I can get my first cup in a couple of minutes.
And that pot cost very little!!
But I would love to visit you and taste it!  I'll bring the cookies.
