Cafetiere / French Press

Easy to brew and super consistent, the French Press is very reliable. Its classic and well-engineered design hasn’t changed much since its invention in 1929, and it’s perfect for making multiple cups of heavy-bodied coffee in 4 minutes.

 

Bean to cup 4 Minutes

What you need

  • 8 cup French Press brewer
  • Grinder
  • 56g (8 Tablespoons) of fresh coffee
  • Hot water just off the boil (about 205°F)
  • Wooden spoon or coffee paddle
  • Scale
  • Timer
  • Mug

Step one

Warm up the press

Warm up your empty French Press by rinsing it with very hot water. This helps maintain the temperature while brewing for best extraction.

Step two

Measure and grind

Measure out 56g (about 8 Tablespoons) of coffee and grind it as coarse as breadcrumbs.

Step three

Add water

Now that your French Press is warmed up, discard the hot water and add coffee into the empty press. Start your count-up timer as soon as you add hot water. Fill it up halfway to the top saturating all the grounds, making sure that there are no dry spots.

Step four

Stir

Use a wooden spoon or spatula to break the top layer we call the crust. We prefer to use wood and not metal so you don’t accidentally crack the glass. Give it a good stir.

Step five

Add more water

Fill it all the way to the top with water. Put the top on and allow the coffee to brew without pressing it down.

Step six

Press

You are ready to press. Firmly push the press all the way down.

Serve and enjoy
