Learn to make a great French Press Coffee every time.
Ingredients & Ratio:
- Blue Monarch Coffee
- French Press
- Water warmed to 200-205* F
- Ratio: 7 grams of Coffee to 8 ounces of water
Step 1: Preheat
Start with preheating your french press with a few ounces of hot water. This will allow the glass to warm up before brewing coffee. If you start with a cold press the water temperature will drop significantly and will not give you a perfect brew.
Let the press warm up for 1 minute with hot water in it. During this time weigh and grind your beans. It is best to grind your beans medium to medium course on your grinder. We recommend a burr grinder for the most consistent results.
Once grinding is complete pour hot water (200-205* F) out of press. Now add your coffee grounds and hot water. Once water is added stir your grounds in the water for 10-15 seconds to ensure they are all wet and ready to start brewing.
Now put your brew top on but do not press it down. Let the coffee brew for 2-3 minutes and then press down on your filter and enjoy some amazing, fresh coffee.
