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|
Step by step guide to brewing coffee in a French press
- Weigh out 18g of fresh Kaphibeans coffee using your scale. Empty the weighed out coffee into the French press.
- Boil a kettle and pour 300ml of boiled water into the French press, ensuring all the grinds are covered.
- Start your timer and wait for 4 minutes.
- 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.
- Wait another 3 minutes (this allows the silt & sludge to settle down giving you a cleaner cup of coffee).
- Slowly plunge the plunger down to a level just above the coffee grounds.
- Gently pour the freshly brewed coffee into your cup
