What You Need:
- 3C French Press
- Coffee: 36 grams set at medium-coarse grind
- Water: 660 grams or milliliters at 200 °F / 93.5 °C for brewing
- Additional water at 200 °F / 93.5 °C for preheating
- Stirring device
- Gram scale (1 gram = 1 milliliter)
Brewing time: 4 minutes
Preheat your French press with hot water. Discard this water.
Add coffee to the pot. Set it on top of the scale and tare the scale.
Start the timer and begin pouring 540 grams of hot water into the pot. Saturate the coffee completely.
Without pressing down on the plunger, place the lid on the pot.
After 2 minutes, remove the lid and gently stir the coffee to further saturate all grounds. Pour the remaining 120 grams of hot water into the pot.
Using two spoons, skim the oils and remaining floating grounds off the top of the brew. This will produce a cleaner cup & will stop the coffee from extracting. Without pressing down on the plunger, replace the lid.
At 4 minutes, slowly press down on the plunger until it is at the bottom of the pot.
