French Press

Equipment Needed

  • French press
  • Coarsely ground coffee beans
  • Kettle
  • Timer

This method involves steeping coarsely ground coffee beans in hot water, then pressing a plunger down to separate the coffee grounds from the liquid.

French press coffee is known for its robust, full-bodied flavor and is a great option for those who enjoy a stronger cup of coffee.


  1. Heat water in a kettle to 93°C (or just off the boil)
  2. While the water is heating up, grind coffee beans coarsely.
  3. Place the French press on a scale and add 20 grams of coffee.
  4. Pour 350g of hot water over the coffee grounds, saturating them completely.
  5. Start a timer, stir the coffee and let the coffee steep for 4 minutes.
  6. After 4 minutes, press the plunger down slowly.
  7. Pour coffee into your mug and enjoy!


  • If you find the coffee too strong or bitter, adjust the steeping time or the amount of coffee used.
  • For a smoother flavour, try adding a splash of milk.
  • Clean your French press after each use to ensure the best flavour from your coffee.
