FRC’s How-To Guide: French Press Coffee

The French press is a basic, easy-to-use coffee brewing appliance patented in 1929 by Italian (yes, Italian - not French!) designer Attilio Calimani. It is, by far, one of the simplest devices to use requiring only the French press, hot water, and Fresh Roasted Coffee. The carafe is normally constructed of glass or stainless steel but can also be found in plastic or ceramic. All of the styles all have a screen at the end of a plunger that acts as a filter to separate the brewed coffee from the grounds. Any style of French press is sure to make an excellent addition to your at-home coffee brewing set-up.

The French press uses a metal mesh filter. This style allows the natural oils in coffee that might otherwise be trapped by a paper filter to add dimension and depth and enable you taste everything our unique coffees have to offer. This brew method is often used by those seeking a fuller, bolder body.

Water to Coffee Ratio for the French Press:

For this guide we are making 24 ounces of coffee in 8 cup Bodum® French press. Regardless of what size you use, Bodum® recommends a ratio of 1 tablespoon of coarsely ground coffee for every 4 fluid ounces of water. This is a general guideline, so we recommend trying this and then adjusting to your taste.*

Step 1. Since we know we’re starting with 24 fl. oz. of water, we have measured out 6 tablespoons of coarsely ground coffee.

Step 2. Pour the ground coffee into the French press.

Step 3. Bring your water to a boil.

Step 4. Remove the water from heat and let stand for about 10 seconds. Then pour all of the water into the French press.

Step 5. Replace the lid on the French press with the plunger at the highest position. Let stand for 4 minutes.

Step 6.After 4 minutes, push the plunger to its lowest position.

Step 7. Pour and enjoy!
