French Press

French Press

If you fancy a quick cuppa with a heavier profile, the French Press is the way to go. It's been around since 1929 and remains a crowd favourite.

What you need:

  • Rivers Coffee Press Core (or any other French Presses)
  • Grinder
  • 16g of whole coffee beans (about 1 heaping tablespoon)
  • 200g hot water off the boil (around 90°C - 93°C)
  • Digital scale
  • Timer
  • Coffee server of your choice

Let's get brewing!

  1. Put 200g of water to boil.

  2. Rinse the french press with hot water and pull the plunger upwards.

  3. Weigh and grind 16g of coffee to the coarseness of sea salt.

  4. Pour ground coffee into the pot and pour 30g of hot water to preheat the brewing chamber.

  5. At the 0:30 mark, pour more water until it reaches 200g in total. Push the plunger slightly and let the coffee brew until the 4:00 mark. Complete the brewing process by pushing the plunger all the way down.

  6. Serve and enjoy your coffee.
