Gary, grinding for a French Press is often a conundrum. Many beans require a very fine grind and a lessened steeping to get the best flavor, but many people (myself included) are wary of consuming too many fine coffee grounds that you would get with the French Press using a very fine grind. One way I deal with that is to preheat my cups and that allows time to let the drink settle a little. Of course, this means handle your drink carefully so as not to stir up the grounds as you're drinking. I hope this helps.
