Welcome To 1710 Coffee

Hey guys, I got the new coffee site going today. You can look for a lot of great updates to come out very soon. I’m working on a few informational pieces making great coffee so I wouldn’t want you to miss those.

In the mean time as we get things setup here on the site I wanted to direct you to the first few features we have. The early work here is all on the French press.

Mostly we’re looking to answer a few common questions about French press coffee, which is of course our favorite coffee to make in the home and in the shop.

The funny thing is that so many coffee shops don’t offer pressed coffee… especially when it’s so much better. We think differently.

You can switch up the water to grounds ration, alter temperature of brew, or change the extraction length via longer or shorter steep times.
