A French Press or plunger pot is an often-underrated method of brewing coffee. It is a simple, inexpensive and reliable way to make a great, full-bodied cup of coffee.Use a ratio of coffee to water of 1:16 to 1:18.

What you will need:
  • Freshly roasted Centurion Coffee
  • French Press
  • Kettle
  • Scale
  • Timer
  • Mugs
Brew Guide: (2 Cups)
  • Grind – 30g coffee (coarse like bread crumbs)
  • Water – 480g (200F and 30s off boil)
  • Ratio – 1:16
  • Total Time – 4 minutes (no longer than 6 minutes)
Method:

Step 1: Preheat the walls of your French press with hot water. Dump out the water.

Step 2: Weigh and measure your coffee according to the number of servings you desire. Grind the coffee coarse like bread crumb.
