Alright so today I was checking out some straight razor info and ended up reading some coffee posts. As luck has it I was able to easily obtain a Bodum french press and I just had some questions for you.
1. How do I make the coffee hot enough? When I pour it in a cup and add some cream and it is definitely too cold for my liking. I am adding the water to the french press about 30 seconds after it just barely gets to a boil. (What kind of a boil should it be. A rolling boil or when the water is just starting to have bubbles from the bottom?)
2. How do you dispose of the grinds afterwards and clean the french press without pouring coffee grinds down the drain?
3. I know that grinding your coffee right before will give the best results. Is there a cheap grinder that I could get? If not, is there anyway to get better results out of pre-ground coffee?
