What a coffee grinder for the French press
Ideal coffee grinder for a French press?
You want a coarse grind for coffee from the French press. The key is to let the coffee steep long enough to make a strong brew. I've got good results with a steep 5 minute time. Be sure to use a timer and compare different times to find the optimal brew. Usually when you are at altitude you need to add time as boiling water is cooler. (Note that I'm at 5000 feet so 5 minutes may be too long for you.)
Below is a picture of the coarsely ground coffee pieces on a US 5 cent coin (21.21 mm in diameter).

EDIT: The reason for using a coarse grind on a French press is because finer grinds get stuck in the filter and / or slide through. This has three potential problems: 1) It is harder to push the filter down, which can potentially lead to spillage or breakage. 2) your coffee is ground; 3) The coffee can become bitter as the finer grinders that have passed through the filter stay in contact with the coffee for too long.
