French Press Brew Guide

Posted by Dave Relfe on

If ease of use is what you’re looking for, then the consistent performer French Press might be for you. Extremely reliable, it has been engineered to last the distance, and has barely been altered since 1929 – the year it was born. Want a number of deep, heavy coffees? This’ll give it to you in four minutes.

 

What Do You Need?

French Press brewer

Grinder

Wooden Spoon

Scale

Timer

Mug

56 grams of Hoxton Coffee

Hot Water

 

Alright, let’s do this…

 

1. Warm up Press

Using hot water just off the boil (around 96C), rinse the French Press brewer. This holds the temperature suitable for extraction.

 

2. Measure, Grind

Using hot water just off the boil (around 96C), rinse the French Press brewer. This holds the temperature suitable for extraction.

 

3. Saturate Grounds

Once the Hoxton Coffee is in the press, fill it with hot water to about halfway (cover the coffee). Start the timer and at 1:00 use the spoon to break the crust (the top layer). Stir, then add more water up to the top. Place the top on and let it brew.

 

4. Press

Once the timer hits 4:00 you’re ready to press. Push down on the press at the top firmly, until it hits the lowest point.

 

Pour into a carafe right away to avoid over-extraction. Enjoy!
