How to Make French Press Coffee

Do you want to make better coffee? With a budget of $30 - 40, you can own a French press. A French press is cylindrical glass urn fitted with a filter plate on a plunger. You put the grounds in the bottom of the urn, add hot water, let the coffee sit a few minutes, and then press the plunger down, separating the coffee from the grounds. Many aficionados believe the French press produces a far richer coffee flavor than the traditional drip method.

  1. 1 - Boil as much water needed for the amount of coffee you want to make. 
  2. 2 - Grind coffee beans, if necessary.
  3. 3 - Preheat French press by filling it with warm water from faucet.
  4. 4 - Allow boiled water to rest for a few minutes to cool to optimum temperature (195 to 205 degrees F).
  5. 5 - Pour warm water out of press and add ground coffee. Use two level tablespoons per six ounces of water.
  6. 6 - Pour just enough hot water over grounds to wet them. Fresh coffee will expand as gas escapes.
  7. 7 - Pour in remaining water and stir.
  8. 8 - Place the plunger over the press to keep the heat in, but don't press it down yet.
  9. 9 - Let the coffee brew for three to four minutes.
  10. 10 - Push plunger down slowly.
  11. 11 - Pour and drink the coffee.
