French Press Brew Guide
A great method when you’re serving a group of people. Easy to do and produces a rich and full bodied cup.
Preheat French press with hot water. Once heated, empty out water.
2. Coffee & Water
Add all coffee and place french press on scales. Start timer as you begin a 10 second pour of water (all 250g) onto grounds. Allow steep for 4 minutes.
3. Break Crust
At four minutes, break the crust by pushing spoon across the surface three times over 5 seconds.
4. Clear Crust
Use 2 spoons to clear the crust from the surface over 10 seconds. Allow to cool for a further 5 minutes
5. Pludge Slowly
Push plunger down very slowly for 10 seconds.
Pour the entire brew into preheated cups or vessel. Do not leave brewed coffee in french press, as it will continue to extract and become bitter.
