How to Make the Perfect French Press Coffee

If you’ve never experienced the full-bodied flavor of French Press coffee, you’ve been missing out! This method of coffee brewing yields a brew that is both strong and free of the natural oils that can build up in a regular coffee maker. Once you start grinding your own hand-picked coffee beans for French Press coffee, you’ll never go back.

Some may be scared off by the seemingly elaborate procedure of preparing French Press coffee, but it’s really quite simple! Begin by selecting your coffee beans of choice and follow our guide for measuring the amount to be used; grinding any more coffee beans than necessary will result in wasted coffee, as it loses its potency quickly after grinding. Aim for a coarse consistency that is somewhere between table salt and steel cut oats.

To make the actually coffee, you will need to boil the appropriate amount of water. Once that is done, and you have your freshly-ground coffee, you’re only five minutes away from the joys of French Press coffee! Just make sure to pour your coffee as soon as it is prepared to avoid a bitter taste developing. When maintaining your French Press, make sure to avoid metal spoons or utensils to prevent scratches, and avoid using soaps as they can become trapped in the filter.
