Brew Steps

  1. Step 01

    Preheat your French Press – put some boiling water in it while you prep your beans.

  2. Step 02

    Grind your beans to a coarse grind, like kosher salt.

  3. Step 03

    Boil water in kettle to 95 degrees Celsius, or boil and wait 30 seconds to cool. Dump water out of press.

  4. Step 04

    Add coffee and pour water in to the halfway point. After 30 seconds, give the grounds a stir and pour in the rest of your water (to the top of the press).

  5. Step 05

    Wait 3:30 and you are ready to press your coffee! Firmly press all the way down.

  6. Step 06

    Pour your cup and sip! Try not to let the water sit in the press for too long – the coffee will continue to extract and you will get a more bitter cup as you drink.

Pro Tip:

If your plunger seems to press down a little too easily – your coffee is ground too coarse. If it is quite hard to push down, the coffee is too fine. Play around until you find the perfect grind for your press.
