    French press/plunger grind

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    How coarse would I need to grind beans for a plunger/french press?

    OG and I have had a discussion about my failed roasts or beans I dont really like and have decided that these beans could be consigned to the Work Coffee container. The thing is - we are not sure how coarse to grind the cofee for the giant plunger that is used.

    Any suggestions would be a great help.

    A medium grind is fine, Lucinda. Suggest that you aim for something like fine cracked pepper. We grind at drip filter grind for use in plungers...

    hope this helps!

    Thanks chris,
    I was thinking that myself. At least the stuff is going to be put to use and not wasted.
