What you'll need:
  • Cafetière / French Press
  • 30g good quality ground coffee (medium-coarse grind)
  • 500ml boiled water
  • Tablespoon
  • Scales
  • Timer
  • Mug 


Step 1

Add 30g (3.5 heaped tablespoons) of ground coffee to the cafetière
and pour over 500ml of boiling water.

Step 2

Start your timer and stir briefly with a spoon to
make sure the coffee grounds are fully saturated.

Step 3

At 5 minutes give the cafetière a quick swirl -
this invigorates the grounds one more time.

Step 4

At 10 minutes push the plunger just below the coffee, you don't want to compress the grounds as this will add unwanted bitterness to the cup.

Step 5

Your coffee is ready to serve, pour and enjoy!


Decant all of the coffee in to a carafe or mugs to prevent over extraction.
