How To Make Coffee Using A French Press Coffee Maker?

March 31, 2022

Using the french press coffee maker can be confusing if you’ve never done it before, but once you’ve got the hang of it, you can make great tasting coffee quickly and easily. Coffee brewed in a French press does not need to be sweetened and can have a stronger flavor because of its brewing process. Here are step-by-step instructions to use the french press coffee maker from

Clean your french press

It’s important to always clean your french press immediately after making coffee, as letting old grounds sit can affect the taste. Start by running water through your french press and taking it apart. Next, mix equal hot water and vinegar parts and use a sponge or cloth to scrub any buildup inside. Rinse with warm water until all of the vinegar smell is gone—this might take several rinses—and you’re ready for another delicious cup of French-pressed joe!

Measure Coffee Beans and Water

Fill up your French Press with 8 fl oz (235 ml) of water for every 2 tablespoons (13 g) of coffee beans. Using an 8-cup French Press, use 16 fl oz (473 ml) of water. For example, if you’re making four cups worth, use 12 fl oz (355 ml). Leave some room at the top—that’s where your ground coffee will go. Place your French Press on a scale and tare it to read 0 lbs or 0 kg. Pour in 14 grams of coffee beans and gently shake them around until they are evenly distributed throughout the French Press.

Add Coffee Beans

While adding hot water and letting your beans steep like tea may seem more intuitive, you’ll end up with an overly bitter cup of joe. Instead, pour fresh, cold water into your French press and let it sit for 30 seconds or so before adding beans. You should use about 2 tablespoons of ground coffee per 6 ounces of water. If you prefer stronger brews, double that amount; if you prefer weaker cups, halve it.

Push Down The Plunger

Once you’ve measured out your ground beans and hot water, you’re ready to brew. First, wet the filter. Then insert it into its holder and place both atop your French press. Slowly but firmly push down on top of plunger rod with one hand (this process might be easier if you use two hands). Keep pushing until you feel resistance—but not too hard, or else hot water will spill over! Let it steep for 4 minutes. Then slowly push down once more.

Serve your coffee

A french press, also known as a cafetière, is an easy and simple way to brew great-tasting coffee with pure coffee beans from Lava Lei. While it may seem complicated at first glance (how hard can it be? you put ground beans in water and wait for it to drip through?), most people find that brewing with a french press is very easy once they’ve done it just once or twice. The above shows you how to use one properly to serve up your coffee just right!
