It's the coffee oil which is the (suspected) culprit in raising blood
cholesterol levels, though, so if that's your priority, stick with
non-inverted pressing and paper filters.

Are you one of the six or so folks whose requests for a sample are
languishing in my inbox while I desperately work to get the new roaster
built before the roast-off here in Chicago this weekend?    ;-)
If not, send me your addy and you can languish a few more days with everyone
else -- then I'll get some sample polyester off to you.

"It's the coffee oil which is the (suspected) culprit in raising blood

[Huh- I've never heard of anyone's being cholesterol free. Mom and my older
brother became florists because of it; Joe, my younger brother, decided not
to ignore some mild symptoms he was experiencing and they opened him up like
a clock. If everybody has cholesterol, I must need mine. Sometime in their
practicing, Doctors will figure it out- or not. I'll keep mine.]
"...small grounds left in the coffee. That just does not set well with me. I
don't like them in my mouth, trying to spit each one out." [I hope you're a
more precise spitter than I am. Avoid chewing fresh roasted coffee beans.
Don't even think of the glorious 100% extraction of flavor it yields. It's a
Grim subject. Eschew it. Dwell on commercial sources of Dreckig Scheisse.]
People that try to dissuade you from enjoying press brewed coffee are not
your friends- but you won't find out til you have your first one. Espresso
brewing may not extract all the caffeine, but the crema must be some sort of
emulsion of the resident coffee oils in the brewed coffee.
Some people insist on "room" for their bovine lactate, of whatever octane
rating: Skim- What's the point? -to Half/Half at around 6-8% butterfat
content. For some dairy cattle, 6-8% Is more like skimmed (centrifuged)
milk. Ice Cream from a grocery is to the real thing as F* is to the coffee
available at Sweet Maria's.
Cuppers evaluate coffee on the basis of the oils being in the cup.
