French Press

A classic immersion brew. The French Press will brew a creamy, rich and bold cup of coffee for one or a crowd.

We recommend a 1:15 coffee to water ratio for the optimal extraction of flavor. Adjust to your taste and type of coffee.

Brew

Step 3

*   Fill the carafe about halfway with hot water, making sure the coffee grounds are completely saturated. 

*   After a minute stir the grounds to encourage even brewing and allow the coffee to de-gas. 

*   Pour the remaining water evenly and place the lid gently to seal the carafe. Don’t plunge yet.

*   Let the coffee steep for four minutes.

Serve

Step 4

 *   After 4 minutes move your French press from the scale to  your counter.  Now, press the plunger down slowly and carefully to prevent hot coffee from spurting.

*   When finished pressing, immediately serve the coffee. 

*   Don’t let coffee sit in the French Press as it will continue to brew and over-extract.
