The French Press, simple and effective to giving a great tasting coffee!

I came across this method some years back, and it still baffles some people when I explain it. 

#1 RULE

Invest in good coffee

Don't try this with cheap supermarket blends as its not even worth your time.

You need some good quality fresh coffee. If you've not tried RaveCoffee then I'd highly recommend. Once you've got your beans or pre-ground blend you want to weigh out around 15g of coffee and add 250ml of water per serving.

Leave to sit for 4 minutes and give the newly formed top crust a quick stir. This will cause any loose blend to fall to the bottom of the press which is where we want to keep it.

Then....

add the press element and rest it on top of the water, leave for another 4 minutes to complete extraction and pour. Don't press down as this will stir up the coffee again, just pour. Mind blowing right, not pressing a french press? Trust us, this will ensure a clean coffee and won't stir up any sludge at the bottom of your cup.
