Large French Press Coffee Makers

Large French Press Coffee MakersBack in my not-so-distant past I was known for drinking lots and lots of coffee at a time. I used the largest travel mugs to tote around my coffee and I would refill it once or twice every day. This kept me mostly amped from dawn until dusk.

These days I drink higher quality coffee with less volume. I drink smaller amounts of espresso and french press coffee but even still I’m occasionally tempted to sip on coffee all day long. My regular sized french press limits me from doing this however – I can only brew so much at a time. 32 ounces may seem like a lot to many people out there but if you share your coffee with even just one other person it goes away pretty quickly.

These days my wife is starting to drink more coffee than ever before – she’s has a cup every now and then. 🙂 When I brew a full french press some of the coffee stays at the bottom of the press pot as it is mostly mud, some goes to my wife, and I’m left with only one and a half big cups left for myself. Sometimes that’s just not enough. 🙂

In most cases this is fine but if my wife drank more then I would be brewing up two pots of coffee every morning and that would get old fast I think.

I’m also tempted to pick up a large french press for the very purpose of having versatility in the kitchen. It doesn’t happen often but whenever I need to make coffee for more than just a couple people I always have to use the automatic drip coffee maker – it just makes more cups.

It would be nice to serve guests the best coffee I have and that usually comes from my french press. I’ve been looking around and I know that mostly french presses are all very similar. Unless you pay up for an insulated pot or go for something made of very little (or no) plastic you will generally do just fine with a low priced unit.

Here are the larger french press coffee pots I’ve been looking at. For the most part they aren’t too fancy – they’re just listed here based on their larger size.

The Largest French Press Coffee Makers

If you want fresh brewed coffee quickly but still have that great aroma and taste, the French press is your perfect partner.

Using a French press is super easy. You just need coffee grounds and hot water and you can start brewing coffee.

Making great coffee with a French press

In order to make great coffee with a French press, always remember three important elements:

  • Quality coffee beans – You need to ensure that you have the right coffee ground perfect for French press. You cannot use just fine ground coffee. It will pass through the filter and end up in your cup. Coffee aficionados recommend coarse ground coffee. You can use a burr grinder to achieve the perfect texture of ground coffee that goes well with a French press.
  • Optimum water temperature – Never use boiling water. Aside from its scalding hot for use, it will only burn your coffee grounds and yield a bitter coffee. The optimum water temperature is between 195 degrees Fahrenheit to 205 degrees Fahrenheit. At this temperature, the natural oils, aroma and flavor of coffee are extracted.
  • Steeping time – You need to steep the coffee grounds before pressing it. Ideally, 3 to 4 minutes are enough for steeping to ensure that coffee grounds are wet evenly.

Different kinds of French press

French presses can be classified according to sizes and types.

  • French press by sizes – French presses are available in different sizes: single serve, 3-cup, 4-cup, 6-cup, 8-cup and 10-cup and above.
  • French press by type of material – Different materials are used for the carafe of the French press. The most common is glass carafe. But there are other options like, stainless steel, ceramic, stone, double wall and travel mug press.
