Brew french press

The French press goes by various names around the world.  The first coffee press, which may have been made in France, was the modern coffee press in its rudimentary form: a metal or cheesecloth screen fitted to a rod that users would press into a pot of boiling water.

A French press works best with coffee of a coarser grind than does a drip brew coffee filter. Finer grounds, when immersed in water, have lower permeability, requiring an excessive amount of force to be applied by hand to lower the plunger and are more likely to seep through or around the perimeter of the press filter and into the coffee.

  • If your feeling bold and wild go for 35grams to 500 grams water.

Step 3

  • Stir the grounds gently. Allow the coffee to bloom.
  • Add the rest of the water. Put on the lid. Let the coffee steep for 4 minutes.

Step 4

  • Press the filter down.
