I use a french press only for my coffee. I always select coarse grind. Will this Cuisinart Blade Grinder satisfy my need for a french press?
Lee, you will be much better served by purchasing a burr grinder, and with burr grinders you typically get what you pay for, so do your homework. A blade grinder will not grind consistently enough so you will get dust and boulders (large and small particles) which extract at different rates - the small dust extracting faster and/or over extracting creating bitter coffee. I went with a cheap blade grinder for awhile on my FP and once I got a good burr grinder I notice a big difference in body, overall balance, and flavor profile. 11-01-13 04:53PM
