Hi

The Chemex is a very pretty coffee maker. It certainly works well.

I've been trying to avoid glass as much as possible. It does not bounce well when dropped. I blame all of the "experiments" at bouncing such things on the dogs ... a wine bottle failed the test about three days ago In that case dog + leash + opening door + wine + chair + lack of attention all contributed ...

We use a Thermal French Press Caraffe that holds 32 ounces. I Bought it from REI in 2012. This caraffe keeps coffee hot for about an hour. I love that we never have to drink burnt coffee.

Chris bought a hand cranked coffee bean grinder. No power outage will ever deny us our cup(s), of coffee! It is a beautiful handmade item, and because I have a SLAP tear I can never grind the beans myself. I have made Chris promise to live longer than me. For Chris the making of the morning coffee is a zen process.

Chris used to buy 25lbs of green coffee beans at a time and do his own roasting in a popcorn pot that we found in a thrift store, it was the best coffee we ever had! But roasting had to be done outside, much smoke, intense smell, and you couldn't do more than a pound at a time otherwise the flavor would lose it's peak freshness. He did it for two years before he decided that costco carried some damn fine brands of coffee beans for about the same price and with much less effort. No, it's not ever going to taste as good. We've been spoiled. But it does taste better than anything you'll find at the grocery store.

Spotted one of these yesterday at a friends house. Seems perfect for trailer camping and home use. All thick stainless. Carafe is double skinned. Virtually unbreakable with normal use and care. Nice size, 32 and 50 ounces available.

I often wondered, do French Presses use a more coarsely ground coffee? It seems it would prevent the last few ounces from having grounds in it.

I recall in my backpacking days, putting grounds directly into the hot water, then throwing the eggshells in also. The theory was the eggshells kept the grounds from floating to the surface.
Pretty good coffee!

A coarser ground works well w/ a French press, since you can let it steep a bit longer to compensate for not having a fine grind and the press does a better job of filtering out coarse grounds than fine ones. Even a good burr grinder is going to give you something of a range of fineness, so you'll likely still get a little grit past the plunger.

When on the AS I normally use the 32 oz Espro Press. It is stainless with a double filter which I have found to keep the coffee grounds out of my cup when pouring. I do grind my own beans and yes they are courser then a drip or for my espresso machine. As to cleaning it might take a little longer but not much.
