How to Use a French Press

French Press Brewing Instructions

Tools Needed:
French Press Brewer (also known as press pot)
Freshly roasted ground coffee – medium to course grind depending on your preference.
•Use 1 tablespoon of coffee per 4 oz of boiling water. (Amount may be adjusted for taste.)
• Filtered water 195-205 degrees.

Note : Before starting it is important to take apart your French Press and clean it completely regularly

To Prepare:
Step 1: Put coffee grounds into press pot. Note: The fresher the coffee, the more it will expand due to the amount of CO2 being released.

Step 2: Bring water just to a boil.

Try a Dark Roast

Dark roasts like our French Roast work best when utilizing a French Press. See our selection of darker roasts in our store.

To Brew:
Step 3: Pour just enough water over the grounds to saturate them completely. Pouring in a spiral or back and forth motion allows this to be done evenly.
Do NOT fill the pot entirely.

Step 4: Set timer for 3-4 minutes.

Step 5 : Stir grounds slowly using a wooden or plastic utensil as not to cool down the coffee.

Step 6: After coffee has steeped, slow push plunger down to separate the grounds from the coffee.

Step 7: Slowing pour the coffee as soon as you’ve pressed it into preheat coffee cup. Remaining coffee is still in contact with the grounds and will continue to brew, therefore serve immediately.
