French Press Brew Guide

Brew Time: 4 minutes

What you'll need:

  • French Press
  • Kettle
  • Scale & Timer
  • Stirring Tool
  • Grinder or Ground Coffee

Step 1

Heat water to 205° and weigh out 30 grams coffee. Grind your coffee on a coarse setting (coarser than any other brew method). 

We recommend a 1:12 coffee-to-water ratio for the French Press. 30 grams of coffee and 350 grams of water.  

*If you order coffee from us select french press grind

Step 2

Pour ground coffee into the French press. Start timer and pour 60 grams of water into the French press. Stir and let bloom for 30 seconds.

Step 3

Final pour - pour water until the scale reads 350 grams. Place lid gently on top, but don’t plunge just yet. Let the coffee steep for 4 minutes.

Step 4

After 4 minutes, gently press down on the filter. Once you’ve finished pressing, serve the coffee immediately. Don’t let it sit because that will allow the coffee to continue brewing and will over-extract.

Step 5

Simple enjoy.
