Simple, Yet Effective...
AKA. Cafetière, Plunger Pot
- Boil Kettle & allow to rest for 60 seconds.
- Add coffee grounds to the pot. (15-18g of Coffee per 250ml of water).
- Pour in your water, ensuring all your grounds are as wet as possible.
- Stir 4-5 times- this is to seperate the grinds, allowing all of the coffee to brew.
- Place lid on and stand for 4 minutes.
- Remove the lid and use a spoon to remove any grinds that are resting on the surface.
- Replace lid and push the plunger slowly to the bottom, stopping at the top of the layer of coffee grounds.
- Pour & Enjoy!
Invented in 1929, the French Press is a cylindrical pot with a plunger and built-in filter screen that presses hot water through ground coffee. Creating an earthy, rich taste in your daily cup of coffee.
The secret is all in the grind: choose medium, with uniformity and consistency throughout. Too coarse a grind may clog the filter, whilst very fine grinds will pass through the filter, muddying the results.
