What You Need:
- Burr Grinder
- 4-cup French Press (double recipe for an 8-cup model)

- 550g water (plus additional water to rinse the filter)
- 40 grams coffee
- Course grind
- 550 grams water
- 4:00 minute total brew time
The French press is extremely easy to use and produces coffee with a heavier body and mouth feel than most pour over methods.
How to Brew
Heat water to a boil (or about 205 degrees if using a digital thermometer).
Grind coffee to a course particle size.
Preheat the French press by rinsing it with water.
Put the ground coffee into the press and fill one-third with water.
Stir the grounds with the spoon to promote degassing and an even saturation. Let the coffee bloom for about 45 seconds.
Fill the press with water and cover it with the plunger.
After 4 minutes, slowly push the plunger down to filter the coffee.
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
