THE FRENCH PRESS
The French press is a classic brew method, removing many of the variables that can result in poor extraction. Because it is an immersion brew method, the amount of coffee and water can be easily increased or decreased--just ensure the ratio of coffee to water (1:14.5) remains the same.
You Will Need
• French Press pot
• 800g water at 95C
• 55g of coffee
Warm up your French Press with a quick rinse of hot water from your kettle.
Weigh out 55g of beans and grind them on a coarse setting, then pour all the grounds into the bottom of the press.
Pour 200g of water - the ideal temperature is around 95°C - and let it sit for 1 minute.
After 1 minute, break the crust and stir.
Pour the remaining 600g of water for a total of 800g, put the lid with plunger on, and let the timer run until 4 minutes has passed.
After 4 mins, firmly plunge the French Press all the way to the bottom.
Serve and enjoy!
Brewing coffee is an art. We want to share a few very important elements that can influence how your coffee tastes.
Make sure you are using Freshly roasted beans (ideally within 30 days of roast date);
Grind Coarseness - if you grind too fine, your coffee will be over extracted which equals bitterness;
Water Quality (filtered or soft) and Temperature (91C - 96C)
Pre-Infusion (Blooming) and Extraction Time
