  1. Boil water and let it cool for a few minutes until it reaches 195-205°F (90-96°C).
  2. Weigh and grind 30 grams of coffee beans to a coarse consistency.
  3. Add the ground coffee to the French press.
  4. Pour hot water (500 ml or 16.9 ounces) over the coffee, making sure all the grounds are evenly saturated.
  5. Stir the coffee and water.
  6. Let the coffee steep for 4 minutes.
  7. Press down the plunger slowly and evenly.
  8. Serve and enjoy!


  • Adjust the grind size to control the extraction rate. A finer grind will produce a stronger flavor, while a coarser grind will produce a milder flavor.
  • If you prefer stronger coffee, increase the coffee to water ratio or use a darker roast.
  • If you prefer weaker coffee, decrease the coffee to water ratio or use a lighter roast.
