The French Connection: Your best bet for major flavor is an inexpensive French press (a.k.a. press pot). Just measure your ground coffee into the carafe, bring water to a boil on the stove, remove it from the heat, and let it sit for a few seconds to bring it down a few degrees. Pour it over the coffee, not letting the water level rise above the press’s metal band. Place the plunger top on the top, but don’t press it down. Wait five minutes, stir with a plastic or wooden spoon, and then press all the way down. Presto! You’ve got a great pot of coffee. If your household has varied wake-up times, keep it hot in a thermos or air pot.
