Previously on English Corner last week, we introduced how to use Stove Top. In this time, I will tell you the way to use French Press.
This is one of the easiest ways to start brewing coffee at home. All you will need is fresh coffee, scales, grinder, plunger and water.
The result is a heavy-bodied coffee with a super simple process.

1. Measure out your coffee (22g) and water (350ml). Grind your coffee a little coarser than you would for a drip grind.
2. Preheat your vessel with hot water then discard it and add your ground coffee.
3. Pour the water you measured out on top of your grounds right up to the top, ensuring even coverage and that everything is saturated. Once you’ve poured in the water wait 30 seconds then knock down the bloom by folding the coffee down with a spoon to make sure everything extracts evenly.
4. Put the lid on it so the heat doesn’t escape and twiddle your thumbs for 4 minutes. Once 4 minutes is up, push your plunger down and pour into your cup. If you’re not going to drink it all at once make sure you still pour out all the coffee. If the water is in contact with coffee it’s still brewing and can become pretty bitter.
