French Press

French Press


To use the French press, you will want a medium grind. Very coarse grinds may clog the filter, while very fine grinds will pass through the filter, muddying the results.

  • Place the pot on a dry, flat surface. Hold the handle firmly, then pull out the plunger
  • Add a heaping tablespoon (7-8 grams) of coffee to the pot per 200 ml (6.7 oz) of water
  • Pour hot water—not quite boiling, into the pot, and gently stir. Pour a little bit in at first before pouring the rest of the water to allow for the coffee to bloom.
  • Carefully reinsert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the water and ground coffee (do not plunge yet), and let stand for 3-4 minutes
  • Press the plunger down slowly, exerting steady pressure
  • After each use, wash the pot with water and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly
