Question: What makes a better cup of coffee: the Melitta manual coffee system (aka Chemex) OR the French Press? — Hal
Answer: Hal, this is a great question. I’m going to go with the French Press for two very non-scientific reasons. First, the experts I know swear by the French Press so I believe that’s in a class of its own. Second, my understanding of any pour-over technique like Melitta’s is that it is onerous and requires a steady pour…the French Press on the other hand is very easy to manage (pour the hot water in, let it sit). I feel like the easier method with less margin for error that experts swear by is our winner.
Let me know if you hear differently. It’s a great question.
