Brewing coffee with a French Press

Recipe for 40 ounce carafe.

65 grams of medium-course ground coffee.

2 liters (34 oz) water at 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Chop stick/Spoon, something to stir with.

Step 1

Preheat carafe by filling carafe with 1 liter of hot water. Wait 30 seconds then discard water.

Step 2

Add 65 grams of coffee. 

Step 3

Add 200 ml of water. Stir 10 times. Wait 30 seconds.

Step 4

Add remaining 800 ml of water. Stir 10 times.

Step 5

Place lid onto carafe then slide plunger down so that it is barely under water, ensuring all of the coffee is submerged and extracted. Wait 3 minutes 30 seconds.

Step 6

Plunge slowly to prevent blow by and serve immediately. If you aren’t drinking all of it right away, pour the remaining coffee into a thermos so it doesn't remain in contact with the coffee grounds.
