Time to dive into the French Press world with this awesome recipe using the French Press.

Your Tools:

  • French Press
  • Coffee Scales
  • Coffee Grinder

The Good Stuff:

  • 15g of coffee (coarse grind)
  • 250ml of water

Let's Make Magic:

  1. Gather up all your gear and coffee goodies.
  2. Heat that brewing water to a cozy 97°C.
  3. Make sure your cafetiere is squeaky clean. Warm it up with some hot water, then dump it out once it's nice and warm.

Coffee Dance:

  1. Grind that coffee coarsely – think granulated sugar vibes.
  2. Toss 15g of the ground coffee into the cafetiere.
  3. Pop it on the scale and hit reset to zero.

Pour and Plunge:

  1. Pour 250ml of water into the cafetiere in a sweet circular motion, making sure all those grinds get a good bath.

  2. Give it a gentle stir three times.

  3. Add the plunger to the top and let it brew for a chill 3:00 minutes.

  4. At the 3:00 mark, take the plunger out, give it a gentle stir three times, and skim off the top layer of coffee with two tablespoons – bye-bye, grounds!

  5. Pop the plunger back on and let it brew until the 6:00-minute mark.

  6. At 6:00, plunge it down until the mesh filter touches the coffee's surface in the cafetiere.

  7. Pour that liquid gold into a carafe or warm cups to stop the brewing process.

  8. Now, my friend, it's time to savor and enjoy your French Press masterpiece! ☕✨
