Coffee Press

Brewing with a coffee press retains the precious natural oils that paper filters absorb, and extracts the coffee’s full flavor while giving it a consistency that’s thick and rich.

Step by step tutorial:

1. Grind and measure

Use coarse ground coffee that resembles sea salt in your press, and measure 2 tablespoons per 6 ounces of water.

Tip: Remember, coffee is like produce. Buy it often in small quantities to enjoy it at the peak of freshness.

2. Add hot water

Fill the press with hot water that’s just off the boil. Make sure to saturate all the grounds.

Tip: To give your coffee the best possible flavor, use filtered or bottled water.

3. Place plunger and brew

Put the plunger back on the press without pushing it down, and let the coffee brew for 4 minutes.

4. Press and pour

Gently push down the plunger until it reaches the bottom of the press, and enjoy.
