French press coffee is in a league of its own. The perfect cup t like no other and those who drink it daily love it. The french press method has been used for centuries and is one of the simplest ways of brewing coffee. How can you experience this yourself? The right method and 4 minutes of brewing time. Here is how.
Bring the water to a boil and then let it sit for about 30 seconds so the water can be at the right temperature, which is 200 degrees. While the water is heating up, grind your coffee using a coarse setting. You want the consistency to be similar to sea salt. If it's a bit coarser, that's okay. We won't tell.
Then preheat your french press by pouring hot water so that it touches the sides and use the plunger to push the water down, and then discard the water. Next, pour your coffee into the press and shake the grounds so that they are as even as possible. Set your timer to 4 minutes (remember you can use your phone because I know you have one). Then using a circular motion, pour twice as much water as you have coffee grounds in the press and slowly stir with a wooden spoon or using the handle, letting the coffee bloom and wait for 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds, pour the remainder of the water until it reaches the bottom of the metal bar of the press and start the 4-minute timer. When the timer goes off, slowly press the plunger to the bottom and your coffee is ready to be served. You've survived the most intense 4 minutes of your coffee brewing life, and your reward is a great cup of fresh coffee. Enjoy.
