French Press

French Press

PREP Warm up your empty French Press by rinsing it with very hot water. This helps maintain the temperature while brewing for best extraction.

GRIND Weigh out 56g (~9 tbsp) of coffee and grind on a coarse setting (breadcrumbs consistency). Discard the hot water and add coffee into the empty press.

BREW Start timer and fill press up halfway making sure to saturate all the grounds so there are no dry spots.

STIR When the timer reaches 1 minute stir the grounds with a wooden or plastic utensil.

Fill the press to the top (~950g/34oz) with water, and secure the lid without pressing the plunger down.

PLUNGE At 4 minutes, press the plunger all the way down. Serve the coffee from the vessel immediately, so it doesn't continue extracting.
