French Presses

Of all the different coffee brewing methods, the one I’ve used the most has been the French Press. Also known as a press pot or Melior, the French Press is a simple way to make a rich delicious cup of coffee.

The French Press is a low tech portable coffee brewing method. Let hot water steep over coarsely ground coffee for 3-4 minutes before pressing down the filter and serving. It doesn’t get more simple than that. This tutorial will go into grind, water temperature, steep time and fixing common issues when the brew is less than perfect.
