Tips to Making Great French Press
This is a recipe for a 6 cup press pot. This will produce about 3 regular cups of coffee. Scale the recipe according to your needs and the size of the French Press you have.
You will need 41 grams of coffee that has been coarsely ground. We suggest a grinder like the Baratza Virtuoso, Baratza Vario or Baratza Forte for optimal grinding results. You can weigh the coffee with a kitchen scale or one of the Caffe Arts scales we sell. You will also need a kettle designed for pour overs. One of the Caffe Arts kettles we sell would work well.
The first step is to prepare your French Press and your drinking cups by prewarming them with hot water. You will also want to put your kettle on the stove with 600 grams of water and heat it to 200 degrees. If you let it get too hot, you’ll get bitterness in the cup, so check it with a kitchen thermometer. If don’t have one, check our accessories section. Next put your coffee on your scale and weigh out 41 grams. Grind it as a course setting so that the particles are about the size of kosher salt. Pour out the hot water you used to warm your French Press and pour in the ground coffee. Make sure the grounds are about level at the bottom of the French Press.
Start a timer. Using the gooseneck pour over kettle with the 200 degree water, slowly pour it over the coffee grounds. The pour should be even and in a circular motion. After you’ve poured about half the water, pause for 30 seconds to let the grinds “bloom”. Slowly stir the grinds once or twice, then pour in the rest of the water. Now take the French Press lid and let the plunger rest on the top of the grinds. When your timer shows 4 minutes, push the plunger down. Push down slowly and evenly. To prevent over extraction, pour the coffee immediately into your cups.
