FRENCH PRESS

What it is: The French press, also known as a press or plunger pot, is one of the easiest ways to make a round, fully flavored cup of coffee. Coarse grinds are immersed in hot water for about four minutes. Then the grinds are separated from the brew by pressing them to the bottom of the carafe with a mesh filter. The mesh leaves the bean's natural oils behind, resulting in a bold, even syrupy elixir.

Where to try it:
Egg, 135A North 5th St at Bedford Ave, Williamsburg, Brooklyn (718-302-5151, pigandegg.com) * Peels, 325 Bowery at 2nd St (646-602-7015, peelsnyc.com)
