French Press

French press has been the trusty workhorse for coffee aficionados for a long time. French press coffee is thick and heavy-bodied, and ready for action in just four minutes. We’re sure someone somewhere told you to measure 2 spoons of coffee for every cup – but how big is a cup? We’ve taken the math out of the equation for you: here are directions for a 4 cup French Press.


Let's Brew This

  • Weigh and grind 31 grams coffee
  • Add grinds to French Press.
  • Gently pour a small amount of just boiled water water over grounds
  • Give the grounds a gentle stir with a bamboo paddle or chopstick. Allow the coffee to bloom for 30 seconds.
  • Add the rest of your water and position the lid gently on top of the grounds. Don’t plunge just yet. Let the coffee steep for four minutes.
  • Take the plunge and press the filter down slowly. To achieve the perfect cup of coffee, decant it immediately after brewing so it doesn’t become too bitter.
