All About the French Press

There are a number of great methods for brewing coffee. Each one has a unique way of bringing out certain qualities in your coffee or masking them.

The French Press was originally designed as a way to grab a quick cup of coffee in the morning as you dash out the door for work. As such, brewing with it is quick and exceedingly simple.

You’ll want to start with a course grind since this is a full-immersion brewer. You’ll want to use 1 ounce of coffee for every 15 ounces of water. On a typical Bodum french press, that’s about one cup, and it goes straight into the bottom of the press.

Bring your water to a boil in a pot or kettle. Then slowly pour the water over the coffee, and start a 4-minute timer.

At the end of four minutes slowly press the filter firmly to the bottom, and pour. You’ll be enjoying a very bold cup of Epic Coffee!
