French press or pour over, which is the better coffee?
« on: August 01, 2018, 01:36:28 pm »
For those of us who brew our own coffee, do you prefer french press coffee or pour over coffee?
I been using pour over coffee, because it is so easy to make this coffee.
recently been reading up on reviews and cafe testing on french press.
blog such as French Press coffee recipe vs how to prepare Pour Over Coffee - which is better
sounds like the same coffee beans will have different tastes if using french press, or aero press.

how do you like your coffee?
Please share your coffee brewing experience...

i am pretty new to trying and brewing coffee

(pls don't tell me kopi o or starbucks leh...)

Nope. That's a stove-top expresso maker.  :-* .... they have both aluminium for gas-stove or stainless steel for induction stove

You need to find your own grinds (preferably medium) ... too fine powder will go through the sieve ....

Nope.  It is using steam at high pressure to force hot water (steam) through the ground coffee.

Same as this machine but at only $20 or less

i love to try all sort of different coffee beans, and different ways of brewing them.
u can have so much different variations on how to drink them.
the same coffee drinking it french press or pour over will have slight different tastes....

in office, i just use pour over though... easier hahahaha
