@bremner No hate here. I only French press occasionally, when I find myself with one and without an espresso machine, and was getting inconsistent results until a couple weeks ago I tried James Hoffmann's recipe (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=st571DYYTR8 – 30g medium-ground to 500ml boiling water, pour and wait four min., stir and let grounds settle, skim off foam+fines, wait five more min., press). Very strong, very smooth. Now I'm wondering what the right recipe for French press decaf+cocoa is.
