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

There is much discussion on here re this. Try a search - use Google if necessary to search the site. As I understand it paper filter removes the compound you are concerned about.

Why not try a Clever coffee dripper rather than the filtering the brew through a Chemex?

Health concerns are best addressed via your health care professional on an individual basis.

Filtering the coffee after using the press should work.

I do second simply using the Clever Coffee Dripper.
