Ha, I was including a different link but doc beat me to it!

They make a tasty coffee but I already dislike rinsing my pour through filter off in the sink, even after I've pounded it against the trash can to knock out as much grinds as I can. I feel like it can't be avoided with the french press as there is a ton of different stuff for the grounds to get caught on.

Well I suppose using the word "French " could lead off in a lot of directions without going into details .I won't go there .Now then my dear old grand dad poured the coffee through a screen strainer which I think was really a tea strainer .As I understand it before tea bags they brewed it like cowboy coffee .Dumped the leaves in and heated it up .Long before my time .Grand dad  was born in Nottingham England and took a boat ride over as a child and being raised English never gave up his tea .

From more than one plumber I've been told not to put grounds down the sink if you are on a septic field, its a good way to plug things up.

Apparently the new coffee maker has a learning curve. I'm not really much of a student before I've had my coffee, After 3 overflowing pithing on its hotplate coffeemaker baptisms its little digital brain must have finally realized it was on thin ice and produced a cup of tolerable coffee. I'll let my instruction reading better half set the thing tonight so that it is finished before I get up.

One of our more creative mornings, we realized we had beans and no grinder. We had a hammer and several plastic bags. I went at it hammer and tong while she got water and a filter worked out and we had our morning cuppa joe  :)

I still have my mom's hand crank grinders from the horse and carriage days. It is quicker then a hammer in a pinch but I don't know what the grind is called. Kind of looks like your hammer grind I guess :P

Yup, Don, I've heard the same and I'm on septic, that's why I worry about using a French press but I don't want to rinse it off into the trash can either. Maybe I just need an old coffee can sitting around that I can rinse into then let the water evaporate or dump it later.

The amount of grounds I rinse off the pour through filter is enough to make me nervous and it's very little, like dust.

I sit here scratching my head .Why would coffee grounds take on a place like they were industrial waste on an epic scale ?Toss them in the garbage can and be done with it .Although I suppose they could be recycled to feed earth worms . ???

If you are really in a quandary as to what to do with those old grounds, you can use them to cultivate Oyster Mushrooms, it's quite easy. Here's a LINK. You can have a nice little crop in about 20 days. There's a group 2 towns south of us that teaches mushroom cultivation and they go around to the restaurants in their town and collect the grounds to use in their classes. They supply a collection bucket and pick up and replace buckets weekly. They also collect and use corrugated cardboard for the same thing.
 Mushrooms are decomposers, that's what they do, and they can do it it just about anything, including fuel oil.

My problem isn't the grounds and what to do with them it's getting the grounds off the french press. All those little coils and screens hold on to the grounds regardless of how hard I bash the thing into the side of the trash can (Or compost bucket). It's takes rinsing the thing off to get it clean, but then the grounds go down the sink, into the septic tank... I guess I just need a bucket of water that I can use only for that.

Your dilemma is why I used my French Press exactly once.  I hates coffee grounds and PatD hates them even more when they are spattered where they do not belong.

French press, yeah. I actually have one, who'd have thought? :D
 But mine is an added feature on my jet boil stove (as optional equipment). I use my jet boil for long hunts and backpacking trips and it's great. It is a fast way to make a good cup of coffee, but I don't use one around the house. I need about 10 good cups a day so I never bring a knife to a gunfight, so to speak. So we have a 12 cup Faber ware pot set on a timer for 4:45.
 As far as cleaning the french press goes, I throw the bulk of the grounds in the bushes and dip the strainer in the stream and shake it around. Good to go for the next time. :D This probably doesn't help you out much Austin, sorry. But never let it be said that I didn't do the least I could do. ;D

Haha! My stream is dry right now, I can't dip it in there, not to mention who knows what's rolling into it from the field across the way when it does have water. 

I bought the small, single cup, french press, I like the coffee it makes a lot but I guess I need to save an old coffee can with some water in it to knock off the grounds, then dump it outside once a week or something.

All this "French " talk I had to go to You Tube to figure out what in the world that contraption was all about .I've came to the conclusion it's just another way to skin the same cat so to speak .I suppose with so many methods you could fill an old sock with coffee grounds and dunk it in a pot of hot water like a tea bag and get coffee .Might be a good idea though to run it through the rinse cycle in the washing machine several times first else it might have a little hint of Tide or Downy  in the cuppa . :)
