Topic: Coffee setting in FP? (6 msgs / 110 lines)
1) From: Ken Schillinger
Normally I use a funnel style pourover to brew my coffee a cup at a time, and this works well enough. On the weekends though, my wife joins me for coffee, so it becomes more of a hassle. I have been thinking about a double walled french press. I am concerned that if I make four cups and let the second serving set in the press that it will get funky,strong, bitter or whatever from setting on the grounds, which will be trapped under the plunger. Is this a valid concern, or needless worrying?
Thanks, Ken

Yes, Ken It is a valid concern.  You would over extract your second servi=
ng.  I pour my seconds, thirds or fourths into an insulated carafe when I=
 brew more then one cups worth in my french press or my chemex.

Thanks Jim,
A little further research uncovered the same information on SM's website.
I guess it's still into the vacuum bottle after brewing.

Ken, if I need to make more than one cup, I pour it into another container,
wash out the grinds, then pour it back in the FP. Granted, it cools down,
but since converting to homeroast, that doesn't bother me. But that's just
me... (I will heat it in the micro once in awhile, but I don't like using
that appliance.)

Don't leave coffee sitting in a French Press, you need to separate the 
brew from the grounds or it will get bitter.  I pour mine off into a 
thermal carafe or a thermos after I brew - minus the cup I drink right 
away, of course.
