Brew french press

The French press goes by various names around the world.  The first coffee press, which may have been made in France, was the modern coffee press in its rudimentary form: a metal or cheesecloth screen fitted to a rod that users would press into a pot of boiling water.

A French press works best when brewing for more then 2+ cups of coffee. The downside is French press coffee is un-filtered which does add more cholesterol and lipids and fats for ones health. However the body (mouthfeel) will be increased with this method.
