Does anyone have any coffee recommendations for french press? I'm looking for what coffee's are best for It mostly. What countries make the best coffee for french press? Brazil? Mexico? And does anyone have a coffee company they like that sells good coffee? If so, which do you like best for FP? Thanks!

There is no such thing as a bad coffe for FP, except just a bad coffee in general.

Kind of an echo to the above.
What do you want to drink? That would be the coffee to buy.
While I have a FP, I am not a huge fan of the method, I do not like the sludge in the bottom of the cup but others do not mind it. To each their own. Lately, my preferred method of brewing is the Areopress, nearly all of the same brew as a FP but without the sludge. YMMV!

MMDV (my mileage does vary).  I personally find the Espro press to be a closer approximation of traditional french press without the sludge.  My preferred method when not at home is currently the Espro press.  I'm expecting that to get balanced out by, if not beaten out by, my MyPressi Twist, once my new tamper arrives.  Only time will tell...For air travel, I prefer to bring the Aeropress.

To further expound upon my reply, the FP is, to me, the "standard" brewing method.  Short of cupping, I think it gives the truest expression of any given coffee's inherent qualities.  The question is, do you like all of those qualities?  This is where preference comes in.  If you really like certain qualities of a coffee and do not like others, then you want to pick a method that brings out those qualities you prefer and suppresses those you do not.  For example, if you really like the sweetness of certain coffees and do not like the acidity, Chemex is great.  If the converse is true, then v60 might be a better option.  But if you like balance, go with FP.  In other words, it's up to you.

If I didn't already have more brewing methods that I can use, I would give the Espro a try! In something like coffee where taste is subjective and personal, YMMV is the rule!

A while back I really enjoyed dark roasted (french) Indian Robusta Cherry. Drank me a 10 lb bag. :p

I'm just looking for some coffee's that pair well with french press. I'm going to go down to a local roaster and coffee company near me and check out some of their coffee's and find something I like. I like to talk to the barista's for information...Maybe they'll make a recommendation.

Blue Bottle coffee has a feature on their website where you can select a specific brewing method and it narrows down their coffees accordingly. For press it selected every single coffee except for those specifically roasted for espresso.
