An easy alternative for beginners who want to enjoy some good coffee without using a coffee machine.
If you feel like a “big, black coffee”, French press can satisfy your taste buds. At the same time, it is quite simple to manage the right preparation and the separation of the infused grounds. Even beginners will be able to make French press coffee without any troubles.
How do we make French press coffee then?
When making French press coffee at home, we always recommend to use fresh tap water (ideally filtered) with a 1:17 ratio of coffee to water (60g per litre, 6g per decilitre). To get the best taste, use freshly roasted and freshly ground coffee.
- it is optimal to prepare French press coffee for more coffee lovers at one time, using 24g of coffee for example
- the best French press coffee maker is the one with the finest mesh filter, which lets only a minimum of grounds through
- the coffee is coarsely ground (sea salt)
- then water is poured into the carafe and the coffee is let to infuse for 4 minutes
- when the required time is up, all you need to do is to press the plunger gently (it is possible to break the crust carefully beforehand)
- after pressing the plunger, the coffee is poured into cups or any container immediately
- it is not a problem if the coffee is a little bit turbid, it is great anyway
