We love using the French Press - it's a portable, cost effective and no frills way of making a tasty cup of coffee.
When brewing with the French press, timing is key. The brew temperature will naturally drop during the brewing process, so if you are not over-steeping it, it's not going to over extract your coffee. Set up a timer with your Alexa / Google app, 3 minutes 30 seconds later, your coffee is ready to be enjoyed!
Tips: Use freshly grounded coffee with a grind size similar to coarse salt. A better grinder will result in a clearer cup.
This 15oz/ 450ml French Press by Timemore is constructed with heat resistant borosilicate glass. Its modern look and neutral color tone can easily complement any coffee setup. Enjoy a simple brew when you feel like it! The French Press is also a fun way to taste the differences when brewing with different water temperatures!
A SIMPLE FRENCH PRESS RECIPE
We recommend using 1:15 - 1:17 water to coffee ratio
For 300ml of brewed coffee, use around 18-20 grams of coffee
For 450ml of brewed coffee, use around 26-30 grams of coffee
Grind size: 25-28 clicks on a Timemore Manual Grinder
Water Temp: from 200-210˚F.
Brew for 3:30 - 4 mins. Gently swirl a couple of times before topping with the plunger to enable an even brewing process. After 3 minutes 30 seconds, plunge SLOWLY, and pour the coffee out in one go into another vessel to serve. Try not to over steep!
**Indicator lines are for easy reference - however, coffee grinds do take up space. For best results, pair with a Timemore Black Mirror Weighing Panel for precision.
