French Press

Step by Step Brewing-Guide

A true classic among the brewing methods is the so called "French Press". It is extremely simple to use and delivers, when used correctly, good constant results. The stainless steel sieve which separates the coffee grounds from the brewed coffee allows some fine coffee particles to pass through. Thus, you will get a strong, full-bodied coffee.

Frenchpress - Step 01

Required accessories:

  • Coffee Grinder
  • scale
  • thermometer
  • stopwatch
  • French press (Model for 3 cups)
  • 17 grams of coffee, coarsely ground as coarse salt, (i.e. "Fleur de Sel")
  • 300 ml suitable water (6-8 degrees dH, pH between 6.5 and 7.5) at 95–96 degrees Celsius


Step 01

While boiling up some water, freshly grind your coffee beans. Add the ground coffee into the jug. The coffee should be ground quite coarsely – more corarsly than your would grind it for brewing it in a filtering machine. In general, the longer the ground coffee stays in contact with the water, the rougher it should be ground in order to develop properly and not turn to be bitter.
