I got my first French Press to keep at work this weekend and I went to our local Fresh Market to pick up some grinds for myself from their stock. I got some stuff labelled JBM(although I doubt it's the same stuff you guys rave about), Kona, Molten Chocolate and Cafe L'Orange. They all smelled pretty good and I wanted to atleast start off with an idea of a range. I ended up using the grinder there because the one I have at home grinds way too fine for the press.

My press is from Starbucks and I picked it up locally for only $20. (Recycled press (http://www.starbucksstore.com/products/shprodde.asp?SKU=275273)) Seems to work ok with what I've run through it so far... ask me how I know the grinder is too fine... :=:

Trying the JBM they have this morning. I'll let ya know how it goes.

2 slopes for a dollar?

Just my two cents....but get yourself a Bodum press. I was a Chef for quite sometime and that's all we used in our restaurants. I have two at home. BTW I've been enjoying some nice Okinawan grown coffee lately. It's pretty effin' good!!!!
