French Press brew guide

  1. Boil as much water as needed for the amount of coffee you want to make.
  2. Coarsely grind coffee beans.
  3. Pre-heat your French press by filling it with warm water from the faucet.
  4. Boil water. Allow boiled water to rest at a temperature of 195 to 205 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Pour warm water out of the press and add ground coffee. Use two level tablespoons for every 6 oz of water.
  6. Pour just enough hot water over grounds to pre-infuse them. Fresh coffee will expand as gas escapes.
  7. Pour in remaining water and stir.
  8. Place the plunger over the press to keep the heat in, but don’t press it down just yet.
  9. Let the coffee brew 3 to 4 minutes.
  10. Push plunger down slowly.
  11. Decant your coffee and enjoy.
