    Cheese clothe and a big tub is good.enough, you don't need anything too fancy.
    Oh and.when buying french french press please consider everywhere else but.the "big coffee places"
    Bodum? Are at the local malls and last j checked they had measuring scoops included and maybe parking fee and snack cheaper...
    Only bought mine at the coffee shop because of promos made it cheaper..

    You can immerse the coffee in water a glass jar or pitcher and refrigerate it overnight... and then just use a paper filter to remove the coffee sediments.

    Just saw a Toddy system for sale at Starbucks Reserve Robinson's Magnolia Branch. It was reasonably priced.

    Personally, I use the Hario Mizudashi one, very easy to use with reusable filter. I might get the Toddy if the Hario breaks.

    Q! How long do you brew? 12hrs? 16hrs? Any tips in cold brewing?

    Just a tip: Try to keep your parameters (brewing time, water volume, grind size, volume of grounds) constant, and only adjust one parameter at a time so that you can "fine tune" your brew. But for starters, you can try 12hrs first then adjust according to your desired taste.

    ***EDIT: My point is, it's kinda nonsense to adjust brewing time if everytime you adjust it, your water volume/ amount of grounds you use is different.

    What do you guys think of this? I use a french press for my black coffee. Might need to switch to filtered coffee in this case

    The healthiest way to brew your coffee -- and possibly lengthen your life

    "That's bad news for lovers of coffee made with the French press, or cafetière, that is so popular today, or those fond of strong Greek and Turkish brewing methods. Boiling coffee or using a coffee press can actually increase your risk of heart disease."

    Hmmm...
    If we will base it on their study that:
    “higher amounts of cafestol and kahweol -- chemicals found in oil droplets” then it may be something we coffee lovers should be cautious of when choosing our regular brewing method.

    Personally, most of my brewing methods involve some sort of filter - Kalita Wave, Aeropress, Chemex and traditional espresso, so I didn’t see that article’s study affecting my coffee routine. I do a “No-press” French Press once in a while, but I go back to my regular methods after that.

    In the meantime, this may be an opportunity for others to expand and try out new things.
