Your making things more complicated than they really are. There's nothing special about a French Press. It's just a way of making coffee. Any coffee.

True I wouldn't buy a coffee intended for espresso, but even then it probably wouldn't be a bad coffee made in the French Press.

French Press is probably the way of making coffee that is most similar to the cupping process and that's what everyone in the industry relies on when sourcing/buying and roasting coffee, so it's not surprising that there are no bad coffees for the French Press.

I don't know if there are other roasters with that dubious feature. I've mostly seen coffee beans segregated by espresso versus drip, but you can pretty much use any type of sliced bread or roll for your ham sandwich that you want.

Posted August 22, 2013 link

I think the point is that there are no coffees specifically roasted for FP, or rather that all coffees are specifically roasted for FP.  The best thing to do is buy several different coffees, take them home, and try them out.  I like to try several different coffees at once on a Saturday morning when I have some time.  I will brew a cup of the same coffee with FP, Chemex, and drip, and see how it differs.  The next time, I might try a couple different coffees with the same brewing method.  In the end, we can only tell you what OUR tastes are.  Until you experiment yourself, you will never know what YOUR tastes are.  And truthfully, I think that is part of what makes coffee so great.  You're missing out on half the experience if you don't experiment for yourself.
