French Press

1. Grind 68g for every litre of water you’ll be using and put into jug.
-
2. Start a timer and pour in filtered water, just off the boil, pouring in a circle to make sure all grounds are wetted - but do not stir.
-
3. Place the lid and plunger on top to keep heat in, but keep the plunger clear of the coffee.
-
4. When the timer reaches 4:00, remove the lid and stir the coffee. The coffee that was floating on the surface will now sink to the bottom, leaving just a light foam on the surface.
-
5. Use two spoons to skim the foam off the surface and discard.
-
6. Replace the lid and slowly push down the plunger.
-
7. Pour the coffee out slowly, in order to leave any remaining ‘sludge’ behind.

After you’ve enjoyed your coffee, clean the press thoroughly - completely disassemble the mesh each time and wash in hot soapy water to ensure no coffee remains stuck in the mesh.

ENJOY!
