French Press Coffee
Prep time
Total time
  • Cold filtered water heated to 195-205
  • 1-2 tb coarse coffee grinds per 1 cup of water
  • {I like 2 g/28 g water}
  1. Heat your water to 195-205. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes.
  2. Add the coffee to the bottom of the French press and slowly pour in the water. Leave the top off and allow the coffee to bloom. A swollen cake will float to the top. Skim off any excess grounds with a spoon or two {optional}
  3. Wait 4 minutes and stir. Now you can put the top on and very slowly plunge.
  4. Make sure the plunger doesn't have any old grounds in it and make sure to empty the press of its coffee as it continues to steep and will get bitter.
