There are several ways to make a perfect cup of coffee. In that, the French press is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to make great coffee. Here is the step by step process to make a great cup of coffee with French Press.
Preheat the press
Preheat your empty French Press, including the plunger by rinsing it with very hot water.
Measure and Grind
Measure out 8 grams of ground coffee per 125 ml of water and grind it as coarse as breadcrumbs.
After discarding the hot water and add coffee into the empty press. Pour water in a circular motion to wet all the grounds until the press is half full and make sure that there are no dry spots.
Give the grounds a good stir with a wooden spoon to break the top layer we call the crust.
Add more water
Pour the remaining half of your hot water over the coffee. Put the top on and allow the coffee to brew without pressing it down.
After 4-5 minutes, be ready to press. Slowly push the plunger all the way down.
Serve and enjoy
Immediately pour coffee into a mug to avoid over-extraction. If you want to drink the coffee later, don’t leave it in the French press, it continues to extract and will become bitter. Pour into a flask to keep it hot.
