Which coffee for French Press?
Didn't get a grinder till recently, but since I got the press a couple weeks ago I bought some ground coffee. My understanding is that grinding it yourself preserves a lot more flavor than opening a bag and sealing it each time? Of the ground stuff I've got some French Vanilla, Starbucks Breakfast Blend, and Hunny brought home some Dunking Donuts that I haven't tried yet. What brands or beans do you usually get? I'm still figuring the amount to put in to the press that I like. I have the 4 cup press (16oz) and I've been using about 3 scoops in there that came with the thing...I like a medium boldness coffee and I think they suggested 1 scoop per cup, and their cup is defined as 4oz it seems.
