Both French Press and Moka Pot can brew incredible cups of coffee; however, there are vast differences between the two. If you purchase a french press in Sri Lanka, you will come to know that it has a splendid reputation among gourmet coffee lovers. Moka Pot is loved by people who prefer a concentrated flavour.


Moka Pot

Moka pots are a bit trickier and you would need a bit of practice to get things right. But if you steep the coffee for too long, you’ll probably end up brewing coffee that tastes really sharp.

French Press

When using a French Press, however, it shouldn’t be that difficult and you’ll easily brew coffee once you nail down the water to coffee ratio. Make sure you let the coffee brew for at least 4 minutes before pressing down the coffee plunger. Sri Lanka has coffee shops such as Fits Retail that list how to brew coffee from each of these models on their websites.

The Buying Experience

If you’re deciding on a model based solely on its cost, know that both these non-automated models can be found for less than $20.

Final Say

If you want to avoid sharp-tasting coffee at all costs, then go for a French press and if you don’t like having sediment in your coffee, then you’d probably enjoy having a Moka pot.
