Pour 50%

– The first step, and one of the most important steps, is grinding your coffee beans.

Grinding whole beans properly right before brewing is a key factor for great French press coffee. It calls for a coarse, even grind. A Burr Grinder is perfect for this; it will ensure your coffee beans are ground to the same consistency, and will prevent sediment in your cup. Pour the grounds into the French press.

– Next, heat the water to 195°F using your H20 Steel PLUS Water Kettle. Once the indicator light changes from red to blue, the water is heated to the perfect temperature for manual brewing methods.

– Pour water slowly over the grounds, and then stir the brew. Let the coffee steep for four minutes before plunging.

– Plunge the press. Press the plunger gently all the way to the bottom.

When you’ve finished pressing, drink coffee immediately. You can also pour it into a thermal carafe to keep it hot, and prevent the coffee from continuing to sit on the grounds. Enjoy!
