hot water
4 tbsp coffee
ground medium-coarse, a little more coarse than couscous
1 1/2 cups hot water
  • French press
  • coffee mugs (2)
  • chopstick
We don't brew coffee with our French press too often, so we haven't memorized the proportions. We drafted this recipe so that we can quickly look up how much coffee and water we need when we prepare a French press for two.
Fill the french press with hot water to preheat it. When ready to make the coffee, transfer the hot water to the mugs to preheat them while the coffee steeps.
In the now empty, preheated, french press, add the coffee and the hot water. Stir with a chop stick or equivalent to help extraction, then cover and steep the coffee for 4-5 minutes.
Stir the coffee again with a chop stick, then press down to filter. Empty out the hot water from the warmed mugs and fill with coffee. Enjoy!
