How to make French press coffee


  • 20g of coffee grounds
  • 40ml of hot water
  • 200ml of hot water


  1. Add the coffee grounds to the French press.
  2. Pour 40ml of hot water over the coffee grounds and stir 10 times to wet them.
  3. Let the coffee grounds bloom for 30 seconds.
  4. Pour the remaining hot water into the French press.
  5. Place the lid on the French press and let it steep for 3 minutes.
  6. Stir the coffee a few times until the grinds fall to the bottom.
  7. Slowly plunge the filter down over 1 minute.
  8. Pour the coffee into cups and enjoy!

Pro tips:

  • Use darker roasts with cooler temperature water to avoid bitterness.
  • Use lighter roasts with higher temperature water to extract more flavor.
  • Plunge slowly to avoid a gritty, unclean cup.
  • For lighter to medium roast coffees, stir the brew just before plunging to reduce sourness.
  • Do not stir before plunging with dark roast coffees, as this can bring out over-extracted, roasty notes.

Enjoy your delicious French press coffee!
