Tried it this morning with the 2015 recipe. brewed 2 cups and worked great. Got a lot of flavor and balanced acidity. Consistently between the two cups was excellent. Usually I brew more volume so I made the 2 cups but 2 was a bit much.

This may be dumb, but are you using fresh grounds for each cup? I feel like if I'm going to make more than a single for me in the morning I pull out the French press.

Yeah I was just playing around. The recipe makes around 8oz of coffee. Which is actually just fine it just takes a bit of adjustment since before I would fill up a 12 oz cup.

I'm not a huge French press fan because of the difficulty cleaning it and grittiness of the coffee. Perhaps I'm not doing it right but it seems like a pain to use. Also I don't really need that much coffee in the morning.
