Cafetiere also known as French Press or Coffee plunger, is probably the most underrated method of brewing coffee. It is cheap, easy, repeatable and just about everyone has one at home.
Considering its name, it seems somewhat surprising to discover that the most familiar version of the French Press was invented and patented by an Italian called Attilio Calimani in1928.
The other relatively unique aspect of French Press is the way that it filters the grounds from the brewing liquid: by using the metal mesh. Due to relatively large holes in the mesh more of the non-soluble material from the coffee gets into the cup. The advantage of this is you get a little of the oil and some tiny suspended pieces of coffee in the cup, which gives the resulting brew a bigger, richer body and texture. The disadvantage is what puts many people off the French Press:the sludge. At the bottom of the cup you will often find a reasonable quantity of silty particles of coffee that (if accidentally drunk) are quite unpleasant.
