• Step 1

    Boil a kettle of water, enough to fill a 350g french press, let it rest for a minute.

  • Step 2

    Grind 22g beans to a coarse setting (A good rule of thumb is the ratio of every 1g of coffee to 16g water).

  • Step 3

    Add the grounds to the french press, then gently pour twice the amount of water on top (so for 22g grounds you pour roughly 44g water).

  • Step 4

    Gently stir the coffee and allow it to bloom for about 30 seconds.

  • Step 5

    Pour the remaining water into the french press and cover it with the lid (Do not plunge yet).

  • Step 6

    Let it stand for 4 minutes and then slowly press the plunger down exerting steady pressure.

  • Step 7

    Once you’ve finished plunging enjoy your cup of coffee. Don’t let it sit for too long as it will continue brewing and over extract.

  • Useful Tip

    Make sure the coffee is grounded at a coarse setting BUT not too coarse as this will clog the filter, while very fine grinds will pass through the filter muddying the results.
