French press preparation: perfect coffee at home

The French press offers a unique method of making coffee. Here, the coffee remains in contact with the water throughout the brewing process, which results in a longer brewing time. To ensure that fewer coffee particles end up in the finished beverage, the grind should be coarse. In this article, you’ll find out everything you need to know about preparing coffee with a French press and how to make perfect coffee with it.

Why the French Press?

For the perfect cup of coffee in the French press, I use 6 to 7 g of coarsely ground coffee grounds per 100 ml of water. This method guarantees a full-bodied and rich taste.

Step-by-step instructions

Preparing the French press

Pour the ground coffee into the French press. Make sure you choose a coarse grind so that fewer coffee particles end up in the finished drink. This technique is particularly known for its clear and clean taste.

Pour on water

Pour hot water at a temperature of around 90 to 95 °C over the ground coffee and allow the coffee to brew for 4 to 6 minutes. This is an important part of the instructions to achieve the optimum taste.

Press the stamp down slowly

After the coffee has brewed, press the plunger down slowly. To prevent the coffee from being extracted further unintentionally afterwards, we pour it into another container. (Alt-Attribute: French Press preparation step by step)

Tips for perfect coffee

Experiment with the amount of coffee and the water temperature to find your perfect taste. Use more coffee grounds for a stronger coffee and less for a milder taste. The French press allows you to finely tune the coffee notes.

The jug should be cleaned thoroughly after use. This keeps your French press in perfect condition.
