PRESS POT

Also known as a French press, press pots are a great way to brew coffee for a single person or a group.  With minimal equipment and a built in reusable filter, press pots can create an amazing robust brew without a lot of hassle.  If you’re new to home brewing, they’re pretty goof proof.

  1. Pre-heat press pot with hot water; dump out.
  2. Grind beans medium-coarse and add to pot.
  3. Set timer for 4 minutes 30 seconds.
  4. Start timer while pouring a small amount of hot water over the coffee, just enough to saturate all the grounds.
  5. After initial bloom subsides (15-30 seconds), stir and evenly pour in remaining water.  Replace the lid with the plunger extended.
  6. Once time expires, slowly and evenly press plunger down.
  7. Pour into a warm mug.  Extra coffee should be poured into a thermal carafe.  Enjoy!

*Press pots vary in size.  Check the capacity of yours at home and make adjustments as necessary.
