Mini Class: Let’s Brew

Join Maggie and Ebbie in the kitchen making press pot coffee.

French Press Coffee

  • Place the pot on a dry, flat surface. Hold the handle firmly, then pull out the plunger
  • Add a heaping tablespoon (7-8 grams) of coffee to the pot, per 1 cup of water
  • Pour hot water—not quite boiling—into the pot, and gently stir
  • Carefully reinsert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the water and ground coffee (do not plunge yet), and let stand for 3-4 minutes
  • Sometimes it helps to give the pot a quick stir, before inserting the plunger.  
  • Press the plunger down slowly, exerting steady pressure
  • After each use, wash the pot with water and mild detergent, and dry thoroughly
