French Press

Simple, Yet Effective...

AKA. Cafetière, Plunger Pot

 

 Steps

  1. Boil Kettle & allow to rest for 60 seconds.
  2. Add coffee grounds to the pot. (15-18g of Coffee per 250ml of water).
  3. Pour in your water, ensuring all your grounds are as wet as possible.
  4. Stir 4-5 times- this is to seperate the grinds, allowing all of the coffee to brew.
  5. Place lid on and stand for 4 minutes.
  6. Remove the lid and use a spoon to remove any grinds that are resting on the surface.
  7. Replace lid and push the plunger slowly to the bottom, stopping at the top of the layer of coffee grounds.
  8. 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.
