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.
MEASURE: Weigh coffee according to above chart. Heat water on the stove or using an electric kettle.
GRIND: Grind coffee to a coarse consistency, similar to chunky coarse sea salt.
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.
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.
STEEP: Place plunger on top of coffee so it just touches the water level, but do not press down.
FINISH: After 4 minutes, slowly press the plunger down. Serve and enjoy!
We prefer bolder coffee in a French Press. Pretty much anything medium roast to dark roast.
