How to Make A French Press (Video)

Watch as we show you how we make coffee in a French Press.

POSTED. Nov 2, 2020

The French Press uses the immersion brewing method. It's great for 3-4 cups at a time. This method is a great low maintenance way to get a great cup of coffee with minimal equipment necessary.

For the French Press, we use the 1 to 15 coffee to water ratio. In this video we'll be using 56 grams of coffee and 840 milliliters of water.

STEPS

  • Grind as coarse as possible
  • Add your ground coffee and tare (zero out) your scale
  • Add 112 milliliters of water and stir with a plastic or wooden spoon and allow to bloom for 30 seconds
  • Gently add remaining water and stir a few times
  • Allow to steep for an additional 3 minutes and 30 seconds
  • Plunge and decant
  • Pour coffee from decanter into mug
