So What's the Truth about French Press Coffee and Cholesterol? 0

Is there really a connection between French Press Coffee (unfiltered coffee) and cholesterol?

Maybe. Like the rest of us, you've probably never heard of cafestol and kahweol, two coffee compounds that have antibacterial, antiviral and anti-cancer properties. That's good, right? Well, partly.

According to research, cafestol and kahweol may also increase your LDL cholesterol levels--and that's not so good. Fortunately, we have an awesome lifehack to tell you about that will easily filter out those compounds so your heart stays happy and healthy.

All you need is your French Press Coffee Maker and a coffee filter to say good-bye to unfiltered coffee and  the coffee and cholesterol problem.

How to Filter French Press Coffee

  • Unscrew the plunger from your French Press coffee maker
  • Remove the top strainer
  • Place an paper filter (we use Espro Paper Filter) over the strainer
  • Screw the plunger back together
  • Voila!

Coffee filters effectively remove cafestol and kahweol molecules from your coffee without interfering with the deliciously satisfying flavor of French Press Coffee you've come to crave and love. Shop Coffee Press »

It's Easy to Make Cold Brew Coffee with a French Press--Here's How! 0

Using your French Press coffee maker to make cold brew coffee is not only a great money-saver hack but also gives you a low acid coffee (67% less acidity, in fact) that is both delicious and easy on your stomach.

Remember we promised it's easy to make iced coffee with your French Press? Well, we're true to our word--here's how you do it:

  • Start with two cups of coarsely ground coffee to three cups of water (in volume not weight)
  • Pour ground coffee into your 8-cup French Press
  • Next, pour in two cups of water, then add the remaining cup of water
  • Use a wooden spoon to simply soak the coffee and water--don't mix water and coffee
  • Now, place your French Press plunger on top and let it sit for 12 to 24 hours

After the suggested time has passed, plunge as you normally would if you were making hot French Press coffee. Grab some ice cubes and pour the coffee over the ice. Add milk if you like or a bit more water if you want to dilute it.

Also, remember not to leave any leftover coffee in your French Press. Just pour leftovers in another container and refrigerate up to eight days. If you want to make coffee with your refrigerated concentrate, simply had two parts hot water to one part coffee concentrate for fresh-tasting coffee. Shop French Press »
