How to make the perfect cup of coffee from a French press is a question I get asked a lot , so I thought I would create this post. I have four French presses, from $39.99 from Starbuck’s to $5.99 from a thrift store. I use all of them . Bodum is recognized as a leading maker of a French press, and you can pick up a Bodum from Target or Starbucks for $39.99. I get my coffee from Trader Joe’s and I grind the coffee coarse . A French press requires coffee of a coarser grind , as finer grounds will seep through the press filter and into the coffee. I keep my coffee in an airtight stainless steel container.
I measure 1 tablespoon of coffee for every cup of boiling water. If you like stronger coffee measure 1 1/2 tablespoons for every cup of boiling water . Most French presses are 6 to 8 cups.
Pour in your boiling water.
Stir it and leave to brew for four minutes, then press the plunger all the way down to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom of the beaker.
Because the coffee grounds remain in direct contact with the brewing water and the grounds are filtered from the water via a mesh instead of a paper filter, coffee brewed with the French press captures more of the coffee’s flavour.
Pour your coffee immediately into your coffee cup.
Now you have a cup of rich robust coffee.
I love to use cream for my coffee with raw suger…
add a french cookie and enjoy !
