French Press Brewing Guide

A French press uses a plunger to press the coffee grounds to the bottom of the pot, separating the brewed coffee from the grounds. This method produces a rich, full-bodied cup of coffee.

  2. Grind the coffee beans to a coarse grind.
  3. Add the ground coffee to the French press.
  4. Pour the hot water over the coffee, filling the French press.
  5. Let the coffee steep for 4-5 minutes.
