Coffee made by a Siphon has a smoother taste than drip-fed coffee, but apart from that, there isn’t much of a reason to get a siphon maker apart from theatrics. And they do look impressive.

Electric coffee bean grinders are excellent and can give you a range of coffee grinds quickly. However, hand coffee grinders offer more control, they are affordable and don’t use any electricity.

When we tested the top five hand coffee grinders on the market we found that the JavaPresse had the best ground coffee consistency. It has a solid stainless steel chamber, that is easy to clean and is just a touch bit quieter than your standard manual coffee grinder. However, you have your own tastes and may prefer something else.

We don’t know what works best for you, but when we tested the top five manual pour coffee makers on the market we found that Chemex was the one we preferred.

In a word convenience. The best grind and brew coffee maker gives you the most convenient way to experience freshly-ground coffee, every single morning.

We are not sure as there is no definitive study on the toxicity of caffeine on humans. Most of the studies have been performed on animals – mainly rats. The effects of caffeine on humans are then inferred from these animal studies. You can read our article and also visit the Caffeine and Chlorogenic Acids Calculator for more information.

You need a ratio of about 1 part coffee grinds to 15 parts water. The ‘part’ can be any measurement you like provided it is the same unit.

For example, you can add 15 g water to 1 g coffee grinds, or 15 oz water to 1 oz coffee grinds. 

Note that you add the water to the coffee grinds not the other way around.

You also usually add about half of the water to allow the coffee grinds to bloom before adding the remaining water to the French Press.

There are four common sizes to a French Press: 12 oz, 17 oz, 34 oz, 51 oz.

A 12 oz French Press is also commonly called a ‘3-cup’ French press because the manufacturers assume that 1 cup is 4 oz.

3 x 4 oz = 12 oz.

However, most of us drink a cup with about 8 oz of coffee.

Hence a 12 oz French Press will hold less than 3 cups.

The same logic applies for other sizes of a French Press.
