comment French-press coffee has a powdery taste
I think the decanting suggestion's a pretty good one. I wonder if part of my problem might be stirring the coffee midway through the steep, because - separate from this dusty taste - there definitely ARE bits coming through.

comment French-press coffee has a powdery taste
I'm actually pretty OK with sediment - turkish is a nummy treat from time to time, so I like to think that it's something I tolerate well. Curiously, I also got this off-taste from some Lavazza Dek (pre-ground) which I brewed in my ghetto Senseo with the refillable hopper. I'm all but certain that what I'm detecting isn't actually a substance but a quality of the coffee.

comment French-press coffee has a powdery taste
It's a pretty coarse grind. My device doesn't have numbered settings - it has an internal bolt which, if disassembled, can be tightened or loosened - but I did mini-grinds a couple beans at a time until I had something comparable to what's going on in this other post: cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/4996/…
