Preparation

1

Fill your kettle with water and bring to a boil
A temperature of 94°C is suggested. If you don't have control over the water temperature, let your kettle sit for 30s - 1min to allow the water to cool down slightly. Otherwise, the boiling water will burn the ground coffee.

2

Pour some of your boiling water into the brewer
This will heat up your equipment. If the brewer is cold, the thermal shock will influence the taste of your coffee.

3

Weigh and grind 25g of coffee

4

Place the ground coffee in the brewer and shake it gently so that the coffee bed is flat
This ensures an even extraction

5

Place the french press onto your scale
Make sure to tare the scale

6

Start a timer

7

Pour 75ml of water in 10 seconds to bloom the coffee bed
This step allows to saturate the ground coffee and optimizes the extraction

Make sure to cover all the ground coffee. If there is still dry coffee on top, use a large spoon to gently push it down into the water.

9

Place the plunger on top of the coffee bed without touching it

10

At 4min, slowly push the plunger down to the bottom

Pour all the brewed coffee into a carafe or pitcher
If you let the extra brewed coffee sit in the French Press, it will continue to extract and its taste will worse.

Swirl the brewed coffee in your carafe and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee
