Press - Netflix
"Press" is set in the world of newspapers - its past riven by hacking scandals, its present at the mercy of the digital age and the 24 hour news cycle, its future uncertain.\ Press is written by Mike Bartlett, creator of Doctor Foster and winner of two 2015 Olivier Awards for different plays, including the critically acclaimed King Charles III. Press will be produced by three-time BAFTA winner Nigel Stafford-Clark.\ Writer Mike Bartlett says: "From exposing political corruption to splashing on celebrity scandal, editors and journalists have enormous influence over us, yet recent events have shown there's high-stakes and life-changing drama going on in the news organisations themselves. I'm hugely excited to be working with the BBC to make Press, a behind-the-scenes story about a group of diverse and troubled people who shape the stories and headlines we read every day."\ Press is made by BBC Cymru Wales in association with Deep Indigo and Lookout Point for BBC One.
"Press" will air in 6 X 60 minute epsiodes.\

A French press, also known as a cafetière, cafetière à piston, Cafeteria, press pot, coffee press, or coffee plunger, is a coffee brewing device patented by Italian designer Attilio Calimani in 1929.

Coffee is brewed by placing coarsely ground coffee in the empty beaker and adding hot—between 93–96 °C (199–205 °F)—water, in proportions of about 30 g (1.1 oz) of coffee grounds to 500 ml (17 US fl oz) of water, more or less to taste. The brewing time is about two to four minutes. Then the mesh plunger or piston is pressed, to separate the grounds and hold them at the bottom of the beaker. The mesh piston normally does not compress the coffee grounds, as most designs leave a generous space—about 30 mm (1.2 in)—below the piston in its lowest position. If the brewed coffee is allowed to remain in the beaker with the used grounds, the coffee may become astringent and bitter, though this is an effect that some users of the French press consider desirable. A French press works best with coffee of a coarser grind than does a drip brew coffee filter, about the consistency of kosher salt. Finer grounds, when immersed in water, have lower permeability, requiring an excessive amount of force to be applied by hand to lower the plunger and are more likely to seep through or around the perimeter of the press filter and into the coffee. Additionally, finer grounds will tend to over-extract and cause the coffee to taste bitter. It is believed that the optimum time for brewing the coffee is around four minutes, and some consider the coffee spoiled after about 20 minutes. Other approaches, such as cold-brewing, require several hours of contact between the water and the grounds to achieve the desired extraction.
