How to Brew Coffee Using a French Press

Why choose a french press?

The french press gives you bold, rich, and strong flavor with the freedom to brew your coffee to your specific tastes.


  • Weigh out and grind the coffee using a medium grind setting.

  • Add the coffee to the French Press. Pour the hot water over the coffee.

  • Let the coffee bloom for 45 seconds. Break the crust that has formed on top with a spoon, then vigorously stir the slurry.

  • Place the plunger on top of the press and let it sit for 4 minutes.

  • Slowly press the plunger downward. The entire plunge should take 30 seconds.

  • Let it sit another 30 seconds to let any fines sink to the bottom.

  • Serve and enjoy!
