French Press Coffee


Step 1

The first step is to heat your water to boiling. Once it reaches a boil, pull it off the heat and let it rest for 30 seconds. (If the water is still boiling, it will be too hot and scorch the beans, resulting in a burnt taste.) Ideally you want the water to be 195 degrees F, but I never measure.

Step 2

Add the ground up coffee to the bottom of your French press. Then use a kettle to pour enough water to fill the container around 70%. You want all of the beans to be saturated.

Step 3

(Optional) It may be just me, but i don't stir the container. But you can if you try with or without stirring and see which one tastes best based on your taste preference.

Step 4

Add the lid on top, and let the coffee brew for 4 minutes.

Step 5

Once the total 4 minutes are up, gently (not forcefully) push the plunger down until it firmly reaches the bottom.

Step 6

Go ahead and pour the coffee into another thermal container to keep until you’re ready to drink it. (If the finished coffee sits in there with the beans for too long, it will get stronger and more bitter as it sits. Not good.)

Step 7

(Optional) Add milk till you see the color of the coffee to your liking.
