For this recipe, we want the coffee to water ratio to be: 1:12. The water temp should also be 204°F, or just under full boiling temperature, and grind the coffee to medium-coarse. My favourite french press is the Canadian-designed Espro unit.
- Coffee Medium-coarse
- First, pour hot water into the French Press to rinse it out and warm it up.
- Next, add your measured coffee and add the water until the ground coffee is completely submerged.
- Allow it to sit for 30 seconds (this is called the ‘Bloom’) then stir and add the rest of the water.
- Set the plunger and lid in place and set a timer for 4 minutes, then slowly plunge and enjoy!
