Grind size: Coarse
Coffee to water ratio: 13g water to 1g coffee
Water temp: 195 – 205 °F
Brew Time: Approx. 5 minutes
Gear required: French Press, coffee grinder, scale, kettle


Step 1
Boil filtered water and then let sit a minute or so after boiling. Ideal temperature for brewing is between 195 and 205 °F. If the water is too hot it will result in bitter coffee.

Step 2
Rinse and warm the vessel with hot water to prevent heat transfer as you brew.

Step 3
We recommend you use a scale and a small glass to accurately weight the whole bean before grinding. 13g of water to 1g of coffee is recommended for the french press— this can be adjusted based on individual preference.

Step 4
Pour the measured whole beans into a quality burr grinder and grind to a coarse grind size. Add coffee to the french press, place on the scale, and tare.

Step 5
Carefully pour the hot water on top of the coffee until the grounds are saturated and gently stir. Let the coffee bloom for 30 seconds.

Step 6
Pour in the remainder of the water and gently place the screen just low enough to submerge the bloom. The coffee should steep for approximately four minutes.

Step 7
Lastly, gently plunge the coffee using the stem and you’re ready to pour and enjoy!
