The Secret to Mastering the Perfect French Coffee Press Brew


Am I officially considered to be bourgeoisie? Honestly, I have hinted at as much to a friend that proclaimed the French Coffee Press to be the only way that they make their daily pot of coffee. I withdraw my insinuation, even though I may still be considered bourgeoisie. It was great while it lasted, however no more enjoying the convenience of coffee pod cups which have been filling up our recycling bin, I'm going green. I have also retired our trusty, little automatic coffee pod machine and am now have become a French coffee press fan club member. Well, I'm excited to share with you the secret to mastering the perfect French coffee press brew.

The Secret to Mastering the Perfect 
French Coffee Press Brew

First things first, we each have our own version of a coffee survival kit for making the perfect cup of coffee. In addition to your essentials and your french coffee press, prepare your favorite coarse ground coffee (or tea leaves!), hot water, and any extra touches preferred to make that cup of coffee (or tea) absolutely perfect.

1 - Add coffee grounds into the cylinder of the coffee press.

2 - Pour hot water (not boiling), to fill the coffee press cylinder halfway.

3 - Stir the brew briskly using a swift up and down motion.

4 - Brew coffee for approximately 4 minutes for desired flavor.

5 - Fill the coffee press cylinder with hot water leaving about one inch of room from the top of the cylinder.

6 - Place the plunger into the coffee press cylinder, turn the lid to block the pour spout.

7 - Lower the plunger to the bottom of the coffee press.

8 - Turn the lid to open the spout, now pour and personalize your coffee (or tea) to perfection.

Our French Coffee Press is durably crafted from stainless steel to prevent concerns about interior or exterior rusting. One of the benefits of using a stainless steel French coffee press is the capability of keeping your coffee warmer longer with a double-walled cylinder than with a glass coffee press. With a sleek design, durable construction, and multipurpose for steeping tea leaves a coffee press is a valuable and practical investment.
