How To Make Coffee With A French Press

Measure 2 TBSP. (10G) of ground coffee per each 6 fluid ounces (180ML) of water.

Boil water and let settle for about 15 seconds.

Pour water into French Press and stir with a wooden spoon - Do not use metal spoons.

Keep stirring until French Press is filled to about 1" from the top.

Place plunger into the French Press and gently press down a quarter of the way and then pull back up so it is just covering the top of the coffee.

Let it sit for about 3 minutes.

Gently press the plunger down to the bottom. If there is any resistance, wait, (you should be able to push the plunger down with just one finger).  If there is resistance then it is not ready.

When the plunger goes down with the press of 1 finger, press it to the bottom and it is ready to serve.
