Take a look at the brew guides and our blog post for tips on brewing with the French Press!
We also support the 20/20 project, take a look at what they do!
What you need:
8 cup French Press brewer
56g (8 Tablespoons) of fresh coffee
Hot water just off the boil (about 96°C)
Wooden spoon or coffee paddle
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.
