The French press is the preferred coffee brewing method chez Cod. In the market for one for VT, to replace an Island of misfit coffeemaker toys. I saw in the DI/DO where they had a new kind of them. Clicked through in interest. Evidently, this kind does a better job of making sure there is no sediment in the coffee But! A "dauntingly complicated instruction sheet," is required. And the NY purveyors of the Espro runs "a 45-minute training sessions on Saturdays at 1:30 p.m.; reservations are required along with a $5 fee." I can maybe live with some sludge in my cup.
