Comparing french press coffee to electric drip brewers, here's a brief outline of the advantages and disadvantages of the coffee press vs coffee machines.
On the plus side...
On the downside -
To summarize, the coffee press is great if you appreciate the stronger richer coffee taste and are ready to take the extra steps and extra time to use it.
On the other hand, if you opt for more convenience, or if you really hate the "sludge" remaining at the bottom of the cup, then perhaps it's not what you are looking for.
My personal view:
As for my personal biased view, I have shifted quite a while ago to the french press and am keeping the electric coffeemakers in reserve for busy moments when I don't have the time to brew with the french press.
I like the better french press coffee and I don't mind about the sediment remaining at the bottom of the cup.
I prefer it much more over the compromised machine coffee with its bad after tastes, under-extraction and relatively low temperature.
