French Press


  • A 32 oz. French Press (Adjust recipe for your size)
  • 50 grams (7 tbsp) coffee
  • A kettle for boiling water
  • 800 grams (28 ounces) filtered water
  • Digital Scale
  • Timer
  • Spoon


  • Preheat the carafe part of your French press with hot tap water and discard
  • Be sure the plunger portion of your French press is rinsed and assembled 
  • Boil 800 grams of filtered water in your kettle
  • Grind your coffee on a medium - coarse setting so that it resembles kosher salt and pour into the bottom of carafe


0:00 – Start the timer and pour in circles 60 grams of water to bloom the coffee grinds and wait 30 seconds.*

0:30 – After the bloom, pour the remaining amount of water for a total of 800 grams

Let the coffee steep for 5 minutes

3:00 – With your spoon, gently stir; most of the grinds will fall to the bottom of the carafe

3:30 – After breaking the crust, a foam will form in its place as more carbon is released from the grinds. This carbon carries bitter flavors with it, so scrape the foam off with a spoon and discard it in the sink

4:00 – Let the coffee steep for another 5 minutes. This will let the grounds settle toward the bottom of the carafe. 

9:00 – Place the plunger into the carafe of the French press and begin slowly pressing the plunger down. The plunge should be done slowly to keep settled coffee fines at the bottom and stop them from reincorporating into the brew

9:10 – Pour your coffee slow and steady and enjoy!

*It's important to pour in circles to evenly saturate the coffee grounds.
