Midnight Snack Video: Making Coffee with James Hoffmann – French Press Technique

From James Hoffmann of Square Mile Coffee Roasters in London: The French Press is by far the best coffee brewer you can buy when it comes to the ratio of price and coffee quality. The press works well with just about any style of coffee. The one problem is the sludge, but thanks to a technique shared online from the wise Scandinavians, you can now make a better press at home!
