Making a coffee in a French Press is simply great. You'll get full flavor, heavy body, and amazing richness.
Tools for the job
Press Pot - 12, 17, 20, 32, 36, or 48 oz
Measuring scoop or scale
Hot water kettle
Heat water on stovetop or electric kettle to boil
Optimal brewing temp is 195-205. At sea level, water boils at 212 F – so let water cool for a minute to 205 degrees. At high elevation (about 5000 ft) boiling point is about 203 so water can be used immediately.
Measure coffee (adjust as needed to your taste)
12 oz press 21g or 3T
17 oz press 30g or 4.3T
20 oz press 35g or 5T
32 oz press 56g or 8T
36 oz press 64g or 9T
48 oz press 85g or 12T
Use coarser setting (about texture of coarse salt)
Place ground coffee into press pot
Brew (about 4 minutes)
Pour hot water directly onto coffee
Coffee will "bloom" or poof up
Use a stir stick to gently break down the bloom
Pour hot water to fill pot to full (allowing enough room for the pot's press to be placed
Place "screen" atop coffee with plunger up, and let brew for 4 minutes
After 4 minutes, gently press the screen through the coffee.
