You do not need a percolator to make excellent coffee. A French Press is a unique way of getting the most flavor and fulllness out of your coffee. Here's how it works-
1) Boil a pot of water. Removing the press from the decanter of the French Press, place two level tablespoons of your favorite coarsely ground coffee. Pour the boiled water over the grounds until you have only an inch of room left in the decanter.
2) Place the press, slot side closed, on top of the water/ grounds mixture. Allow it to sit for 5 minutes.
3) Gently press the press down, turn the slot open, and pour yourself a rich, fresh cup of sultry coffee that is unique to your taste.
