How To Make Delicious French Press

In fact, if you want to choose the most practical entry-level coffee equipment, the French pressure pot may not be the best, but it must be among the top three. Its convenient time control and observation are unmatched by other brewing equipment.

French press originated in France around 1850. It is a simple brewing equipment composed of a heat-resistant glass bottle body and metal filter screen with a pressure bar. At first, it was mainly used to brew black tea, so some people called it a tea maker. The principle of French pressed coffee is to use the soaking method of full contact between water and coffee grounds to release the essence of coffee.

Steps For Making French Press Coffee

Warm up your press. Don't underestimate this step! It can reduce the temperature fluctuation during brewing.

Grind and weigh the coffee according to the amount of coffee you need to brew. Rough grinding is recommended.

Weigh the water according to the coffee grounds you need. The recommended ratio of coffee to water starts with the standard method crushing ratio of 1:15.

Then heat the water and measure the temperature with a thermometer. The recommended water temperature is between 195 ° F and 205 ° F.

Pour the coffee grounds into the pressure pot, then slowly pour in the hot water. After soaking the ground in water, stir properly and wait for about 30 seconds. Then add the remaining hot water.

Close the lid of the autoclave, but do not press it down. Wait 4 minutes.

Start pressing down. If you feel stressed, it is because the coffee grounds are too fine. On the contrary, the coffee grounds are too thick.

After brewing, pour immediately into another insulated container! Please don't delay, as the coffee grounds are still brewing. Next, pour it into a mug and enjoy!

If you want to avoid excessive caffeine intake and drink your daily coffee healthily, you can use a free caffeine calculator to calculate your daily intake of caffeine.

From the perspective of steps, it feels super simple, but it should be noted that the thickness of coffee grounds, the temperature of hot water, and the length of soaking time will affect the taste of coffee.

Tips For Using French Press

Suitable for single source coffee beans, or strong sour coffee beans, suitable for medium to deeply roasted coffee beans.

Rough grinding is recommended (because the hot water directly contacts the coffee grounds, too fine is easy to extract too much).

Always use fresh coffee grounds, as it is not a high pressure extraction. The taste of aged coffee grounds can easily turn sour and bitter.

The rest time is about 3-4 minutes. The longer the soaking time, the stronger the taste and the stronger the sour taste. Each coffee bean has different tastes and personal preferences, so please try them one by one. There is no need to press the filter when standing, so that coffee and water have more time and space to contact.

Last Thought

The easiest thing to control the French press is time. Beans, ground beans, and water temperature under the same conditions have different effects at different times. Generally speaking, the longer the time, the stronger the taste, but it is easy to produce bitterness, astringency, and miscellaneous taste.

However, when the five main factors of coffee change, the control of time will have unexpected effects.

For example, deeply roasted beans can obtain a good aroma and sweetness by controlling a short time, while lightly roasted beans need more time to extract. It can express acidity and aroma.

Observe the state of the bean, because the French press is the easiest device to pay attention to the state of the bean. You can check the amount of foam after coffee comes into contact with water (krima) and how coffee slowly sinks into the water.

Observing these phenomena can not only help you better understand beans, but also have a deeper understanding of other devices. If you want to brew delicious coffee at home, you can use roastercoffees.com to get more coffee resources.
