The French Press is generally known for its inexpensive and easy-to-follow method. While most brewing methods consist of water filtering through coffee grounds, this method involves the coffee and water steep together, giving the coffee an equal and consistent flavour and extraction.
The French Press Method
- French Press
- Water (As a general suggestion, we would recommend
8.5g per 100mL of water i.e. ~5 heaped teaspoons per standard cup)
- Any of our Velo coffees!
Remember that the water to coffee ratio can be adjusted according to your taste
Building your Coffee:
- Boil around 250mL fresh water.
- Grind 22g of coffee to a medium-coarse grind (we offer a free grinding service with all coffee purchased!)
- Preheat your coffee press with boiling water and discard before adding coffee.
- Place on a weighing scales. Tare the balance, then add your 22g coffee to the press.
- Pour ~40 g of hot water (ideally 94℃) initially to saturate the grounds.
- After 30 seconds add the remaining water, allowing it to steep for 3.5 minutes.
- Steadily plunge the filter to the bottom.
