Why is this called a french press in? Is it very popular in france? 🤷‍♀️
Anyway.. have som more


Two French inventors (Mayer and Delforge) patented in 1852 a forerunner of the French press. A patent was filed by a Frenchman, Marcel-Pierre Paquet dit Jolbert, officially published on August 5, 1924.

@openess we call it a cafetière though, but that's a french loanwoard :D

@sexybiggetje here it's called press coffee (presskaffe) or a press pot (presskanna) Because you press it down ☕😊

@openess my friends in the UK don't like when presses are called French and sprouts are called Brussels :)

But the cafetière à piston is the French press IMO.
