  • Timer

How to prepare

  • Bring enough water to fill the French press to a boil. For each cup 250ml you need about 18g of coffee grounds.
  • Empty coffee into the French press.
  • Pour the hot water gently over the grounds.
  • Stir the coffee with a bamboo paddle or chopstick to ensure the grounds are evenly saturated.
  • Place the lid gently on top of the press. Don’t plunge just yet.
  • Pause and let the coffee steep for four minutes.
  • Plunge the filter down through the coffee. When you’ve finished pressing, serve the coffee immediately. Don’t let it sit, as this will cause it to continue brewing and over-extract.
