Posted Sat Feb 25, 2012, 8:11am Subject: I love my French press coffee....but worried about the Cholesterol thing??
Hello, This is probably stupid.... but does anyone know if filtering my nice strong French Press brew thru a Chemex filter will remove the problem oils from the French press coffee. I have been trying this and like the taste better than the Chemex made coffee. There IS alot of residue left on the Chemex filter after i pour freseh brewed French Press thru. OR is the LDL cholesterol problem with French PRess coffee an urban legend. I drink 3 good size cups of dark thick French Press a day and have read some pretty reputable medical studies on the oils left by direct contact brewing methods rasiing LDL levels. Thanks for any input
