French Press Brewing Guide
Pre warm the cafetiere with hot water, leave the lid on with the hot water in for 1 - 2 minutes
Weigh out the coffee ideally using scales. We suggest using 45 - 50grams per litre and adjusting to suit your taste
Dispose of the water you used to warm the cafetiere earlier, pop the coffee straight in, pour over just off the boil water. Give the coffee a quick stir to break up any clumps
Allow the coffee to ‘bloom’ this is the Co2 escaping, if the coffee has been roasted in the last 2 weeks allow around a minute, if over 2 weeks allow 30 - 45 seconds
Press the plunger down slightly lower than the surface of the coffee and allow to stand for another 3-4 minutes
Press the plunger all the way down, serve and enjoy!
For a milder brew, add hot water to a cup, that way you get the full flavour with none of the bitterness
