8 Cup French Press

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. The French Press or cafetiere or plunger or whatever you want to call it is the traditional, simple design that produces beautiful, consistent flavours from the Three Fools beans (The Ethiopian is AMAZING on the French Press, just saying…).

This cup produces 8 cups of coffee, so when you’re making breakfast on Saturday morning but have to flip the bacon in a second, this is the one you need.

We’ve made a brewing guide for the good old French Press. Check it out, you’ll thank us. Honestly.

Brew Guides

What you need:
8 cup French Press brewer
Grinder
56g (8 Tablespoons) of fresh coffee
Hot water just off the boil (about 96°C)
Wooden spoon or coffee paddle
Scale
Timer
Mug

Step 1: Warm up the press
Warm up your empty French Press by rinsing it with very hot water. This helps maintain the temperature while brewing for best extraction.

Step 2: Measure and grind
Measure out your coffee and grind it as coarse as breadcrumbs.

Step 3: Add Water
Now that your French Press is warmed up, discard the hot water and add coffee into the empty press. Start your count-up timer as soon as you add hot water. Fill it up halfway to the top saturating all the grounds, making sure that there are no dry spots.

Step 4: Stir
At 1:00, use a wooden spoon or spatula to break the top layer we call the crust. We prefer to use wood and not metal so you don’t accidentally crack the glass. Give it a good stir.

Step 5: Add more water
Now, fill it all the way to the top with water. Put the top on and allow the coffee to brew without pressing it down.

Step 6: Press
At 4:00, you are ready to press. Firmly push the press all the way down.
