Making coffee using a French Press is easy and environmentally friendly. Plus, you get a perfect cup of coffee.
Equipment and Ingredients
1 French Press
3-4 heaping Tbsp of medium to dark roast, medium-course ground coffee
Hot (not boiling) water.
Start by placing the French Press on a dry, flat surface. Hold the handle firmly, then pull out the plunger.
Next, add a heaping tablespoon (7-8 grams) of medium-coarse grinds to the pot per 6.7 oz (200 ml) of water. Or a 1:12 coffee grind-to-water ratio.
Then, gently stir and pour hot water—not quite boiling (at or about 200° Fahrenheit)—into the pot.
Now, 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.
Last, press the plunger down slowly, exerting steady pressure.
After each use, wash the pot with water and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly.
