Measure The Coffee
Whether you choose beans and grind them yourself or ground coffee, the real secret to a perfect cup of coffee is in getting the amount of coffee right.
If you’re going with beans then experts recommend two tablespoons of coffee for 6 ounces of water. Start with this, you can always increase or decrease a little to suit your individual tastes.
Grind The beans
Grinding is easy when you have a grinder. But, you’ll have to choose the grinding size. The smaller the pieces the more the flavor will be pulled out of the beans. In contrast, large pieces will simply take the caffeine, giving you a powerful punch.
Coffee should be made with water that is just off boiling. That means you need to bring your kettle to the boil and then, after it’s clicked off, wait approximately 30 seconds.
Now pour it into the French Press where your coffee is already waiting.
It’s a good idea to leave the coffee granules and water just to soak for thirty seconds before you stir them.
The trick now s to leave them for the right amount of time to brew. Two minutes is a good average although you may want to tweak this each time you make coffee until you find your perfect flavor.
Once your two minutes have passed slide the plunger to the bottom. Do this slowly and evenly, too much force risks breaking the press or spilling your precious coffee.
You can now pour into a cup and taste. You’ll get all the different flavors if you leave the coffee black. Don’t forget that the coffee flavor will change as it sits in your cup. It tastes very different straight from the press compared to the taste when it’s cooled.
Following the instructions will help you to make the perfect cup of coffee. But, remember that it is a process of trial and error and your perfect cup of coffee may not be the same as someone else’s.
