... or a 'cafetiere' if you're feeling fancy.
We're going with approximately 30g here.
This is optional. You can buy your coffee pre-ground, but frankly the fresher ground the better, so you might want to get yourself one of these.
Because we don't microwave water. We're not fucking animals.
Scale (with a timer)
If we're doing this, let's do it right.
Around 4 minutes.
Bring enough water to fill the french press / cafetiere / plunger to a boil.
While the water is heating, grind your coffee. French press coffee wants a coarse grind. We recommend starting with a 1:12 coffee-to-water ratio. If you're using 350 grams of water, you’ll want 30 grams of coffee.
To start, gently pour twice the amount of water than you have coffee onto your grounds. For example, if you have 30 grams of coffee, you’ll want to start with 60 grams of water. Give the grounds a gentle stir with a stirry device of some sort, not your penis. Allow the coffee to bloom for 30 seconds.
Pour the remaining water and place the lid gently on top of the grounds. Don’t plunge just yet. Let the coffee steep for four, fucking, minutes.
Gently remove your French press from the scale and place it on your counter. Press the filter down. If it’s hard to press, that means your grind is too fine; if the plunger immediately hit the botom, it means your grind is too coarse. An et voila, your coffee is ready to be served.
