Can you please tell me the benefits of a French Press? They look snazzy.
Better taste and less counter space.
But! I have found it pretty impractical if you and another drink several cups of coffee. Also, it gets colder much faster. However, the taste is MUCH better. Gotta grind your beans yourself (even if just at the store) since pre-ground coffee is too fine.
agreed with armeck: french press is best suited for small batches & it loses heat way more quickly. it’s way better tasting, though. if someone doesn’t like black coffee because it’s too bitter, have them try french press.
as wikipedia says, ”Because the coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter, coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee’s flavour and essential oils, which would become trapped in a traditional drip brew machine’s paper filters. French pressed coffee is usually stronger and thicker and has more sediment than drip-brewed coffee.”

a fantastic insight into our greater culture.
An easy question with an easy answer: because unemployment is structural. It’s because paying people to do the jobs they once did - building/improving homes, retail - is good money after bad. We need capital investment to drive future jobs, not short-term stimulus to extend the lfespan of our broken economic infrastructure. That means new jobs from new corporations founded on new ideas, not - for example - paying autoworkers obscene salaries to make cars to drive on our broken, oil-dependent highway infrastructure.
where are you going to get that water, anyway, Paul?
were i feeling saucy & had i the time, i might argue that the analogy is backwards: Mr. deLespinasse’s cloud-seeding is more like American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in that it seeks to directly commandeer private funds in order to indirectly spur economic behavior [not sure how much more round-about you can get]; whereas a cut in taxes is the most efficient, immediate, and simple way to give people money to spend.
finally! if only all of his decisions were this good!
