French Press for 2 people
What you need
- French Press
- Digital Scale
- wooden or plastic stirrer
- Grinder (if you have whole beans)
- 30g of good coffee
Boil 500ml of water.
Grind 30g of coffee (best) or take the same amount of pre-ground coffee from your bag. The beans should be ground at a medium to coarse level.
Place the French Press on top of a digital scale and pour the coffee inside.
Add 50g of water and stir the coffee. Start the timer. Wait for 30 seconds.
Add the water until the total of 450g (If you like a stronger coffee you can use a total of 400g of water).
Let it sit for 4 minutes.
Give another stir to break the crust on top of the liquid and, with 2 spoons, take the foam that keeps floating on top of the coffee.
Put the cover on and gently press the plunger until almost the end. Serve the coffee slowly so that the solids in the bottom of the French Press don’t get agitated and end up in the cup.
What you get
The French Press Press makes a strong and heavy bodied coffee. The grounds will stay infused in the water for a good amount of time. The oils and micro solids will stay in the coffee once we don’t use paper filter to hold them. If well done, it gives a strong but clean taste and it’s for sure a great way to perceive the quality of the coffee.
