"American Press" is a coffee brewing device that brews quickly and is easy to wash. It has a structure similar to the French press, but has been improved to suit American tastes.
In the case of the French press, put the ground coffee beans directly inside the carafe and pour hot water there. Wait for a while until the coffee comes out, then lower the brander and pour the coffee. Depending on the type of coffee beans, you need to wait about 4-5 minutes for the coffee to come out.
"American Press" is a coffee brewing device for impatient Americans who can't wait for these 4-5 minutes. When using, put the coffee beans in a special pod and put hot water in the carafe. If you push down the pod, the pressure at that time will allow the hot water in the carafe to pass through the pod. It is a mechanism that coffee is extracted.
With some pressure, it can be brewed faster than a French press, which waits for coffee to come out naturally. The filter is made of metal, so you don't need to buy a paper filter. It also has the advantage of being easy to clean because the coffee powder stays in the pod (basically).
When I push down the pod, coffee extracted from the 6 holes installed in the filter part spouts out, but it is fun to watch this. It's an American idea that loves to have fun.
