I'm pretty much new to everything and just getting my mobile business off the ground. But I have some questions about French Press coffee.
I have been sampling beans from several roasters in order to determine which I want to use for my pour over coffees. But I have also been sampling them with my French Press. What I've learned is that while I am not to keen on some of them for pour over, I really like them when I use my French Press!
The raised the question for me if it would be practical for me to offer pressed coffee in my business and if others are doing it? As I mentioned, I will be operating a mobile shop and my only real worry is the time required. I figure that anyone that asks for a press coffee will know that it takes a few minutes to brew and for everyone else I could explain when they order... So it would help to hear from others who do this or have tried it.
Another quesiton is have about it is if it might work out okay if I used a large press to brew a small airpot full as long as I don't let it sit too long? Guess I could just try it, but haven't bought a big press yet and thought I might save the money if anyone has already tried and found it doesn't work well.
We use Chemex at Vecinos...as an alternative to our french pressed coffees. Working on getting the work flow down because it takes a lot of time compared to espresso drinks. You have to babysit it if you want to do it right. It is the begininng of a larger "slow bar" we will be offering.
