Making Coffee in a French Press
The first step is to grind the coffee beans. You can use a regular grinder or a burr grinder. The goal is to create a consistent grind so that the water will extract the flavor evenly.
Next, add the ground coffee to the French Press. Add enough water so that it covers the grounds, but don’t add too much or it will be over-extracted.
Then, put the French Press on the stove and heat it until the water starts to boil. Remove it from the heat and let it sit for about 30 seconds. This will give the coffee time to bloom.
After 30 seconds, place the French Press back on the heat and bring it to a boil. When it reaches a boil, turn it off and let it sit for another 30 seconds.
Now, it’s time to plunge the French press. Slowly push the plunger all the way down until it touches the bottom of the pot. If you do this too quickly, you will release more coffee than you want. Be careful not to touch the grounds with the plunger, or you’ll end up with a cloudy coffee.
Finally, pour your coffee into a cup and enjoy!
