Cafetiere French Press

Making a cup of coffee using a French press is relatively easy and a great way to get your daily dose of caffeine. However, if you're after a quick cup of coffee the French press may not be for you. But be a little patient and you'll be rewarded with a delicious cup of coffee.

Step by step guide to making French press coffee

You need 6g of coffee per 100ml of water. If you prefer a stronger brew, use 7g per 100ml.

Our recipe is using a 350ml French press, giving you 300ml of coffee. If you're brewing a larger amount, then use the above water to coffee ratio to get the right quantities for your brew.

What you need

18g Ground Kaphibeans coffee 300ml filtered water
Weighing scale Timer
Kettle
Spoon

Step by step guide to brewing coffee in a French press

  1. Weigh out 18g of fresh Kaphibeans coffee using your scale. Empty the weighed out coffee into the French press.
  2. Boil a kettle and pour 300ml of boiled water into the French press, ensuring all the grinds are covered. 
  3. Start your timer and wait for 4 minutes.
  4. Grab a spoon and gently stir the crust that has formed, stirring for a few seconds. You'll see the crust slowly falling to the bottom and a layer of foam forming at the top. Using a spoon, gently remove the foam and discard. 
  5. Wait another 3 minutes (this allows the silt & sludge to settle down giving you a cleaner cup of coffee).
  6. Slowly plunge the plunger down to a level just above the coffee grounds. 
  7. Gently pour the freshly brewed coffee into your cup
  8. Enjoy!
