Choosing a grinder for your coffee beans which you can use with your French press today is a lot harder than it used to be as there are so many to choose from. Of course you can use a coffee grinder without having a French press but if you do have a French press then you certainly will need a grinder. Although not everybody that grinds their own coffee beans has a French press, the numbers that do are on the increase as many believe that a French press allows the beans to provide their full flavor. What’s the best French Press Grinder is a question that many ask but the answer they receive will vary, depending if they want a manual grinder or a grinder that does the grinding automatically. The reason why an increasing number of people are starting to use a French press to make their coffee is due to the fact that the other methods of making coffee use a paper filter whilst a French press uses its own unique filter. When a paper filter is used, although the water which has been flavored by the beans can pass through the filter, nothing else can, including the oils released from the beans during the grinding process. It is said that it is these oils that contain a great deal of the coffee bean’s taste or flavor. The unique filter in a French press though, allows the oils as well as the flavored water to pass through, allowing the resultant cup of coffee the maximum flavor possible. Despite its name, it was an Italian designer by the name of Attilio Calimani that first designed and patented the French Press in 1929 and its popularity has continued to row ever since.
There are of course many ways to make coffee from instant, cappuccino or with a French press but whichever way you choose to make it, it is the type of coffee bean that you choose to use that will give the flavor. Many instant coffees originate in South America and so many people often associate South America with the best coffee beans but, according to experts, South America only produces one of the top ten best flavoured coffee beans in the world. These experts have tried beans from all around the globe and ranked them by what they consider to have the best taste. Although your tastes may differ from those of the experts, as their rankings are based on a consensus of opinion, you are likely to agree with most of their findings. The enormity of the task they faced in compiling these rankings will only be understood when you realize that today there are over 50 different countries around the world that both grow and export coffee beans. Apart from South America, the top ten beans also were considered to come from Costa Rica in Central America, Jamaica in the Caribbean, Hawaii in the Pacific Ocean, Kenya and Ethiopia in Africa.
