What You'll Need
Good To Have:
- Dose: 30g of coffee per 450ml of water
- Water Temp: 94°C
- Grind: Coarse
- Brew Time: 4 minutes
Bring water temperature to 94°C, or just off the boil.
Weigh out 30g of coffee and grind it to coarse.
Add coffee grounds to French Press.
Pour hot water into the French press, ensuring all the coffee grounds are saturated. Place the plunger and lid on and leave to steep for 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes, use a spoon to break the crust on top of the coffee.
Slowly and gently press down the plunger until it sits just above the coffee. Pour and enjoy!
Our Brewing Tips:
- To adjust the strength of your coffee, you can add or subtract 5 grams of coffee per litre of water.
- If the coffee tastes too sour or acidic, try using a finer grind size.
- If the coffee tastes flat or bitter, try using a coarser grind size.
- To prevent sediment and achieve a cleaner cup, use a French press with a fine mesh plunge.
