How to make coffee with a French Press:

You’ll need a slightly coarser grind, mix it with hot water, stir and leave to brew for a few minutes, Then press the plunger to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom of the beaker. The coffee can be brewed to any strength by adjusting the amount of ground coffee that is brewed.

You drink tea? You can also use the press to strain tea leaves?
