French Press Organic Coffee Brewing

This brew method highlights coffee’s more full-bodied qualities.

WHAT YOU NEED: Whole Bean Coffee | French Press | Wooden Spoon | Hot Water | Timer | Scale or Tablespoon

PRO TIP: We recommend weighing coffee with a scale and using a timer for best results.

Step 1.

MEASURE: Weigh coffee according to above chart. Heat water on the stove or using an electric kettle.

Step 2.

GRIND: Grind coffee to a coarse consistency, similar to chunky coarse sea salt.

Step 3.

PRE-HEAT: Pour a few ounces of hot water into the French press and swirl to pre-heat. Discard and add ground coffee to the bottom of the French press.

Step 4.

BREW: Start timer then pour water just off the boil (200-205°F) over the ground coffee. Pour quickly to immerse all grounds.

PRO TIP: Use a wooden spoon to stir a few times once all the hot water is added.

Step 5.

STEEP: Place plunger on top of coffee so it just touches the water level, but do not press down.

Step 6.

FINISH: After 4 minutes, slowly press the plunger down. Serve and enjoy!

Jim's notes:

We prefer bolder coffee in a French Press. Pretty much anything medium roast to dark roast.

Enjoy!
