Fair Grounds Organic Cafe & Roastery

French Press/Bodum

The French press is touted as the purist brewing method. They require less work than you would imagine, and produce the most flavourful coffee - albeit, strong coffee. Fill the bottom of the beaker with a few tablespoons of very coarsely ground coffee. Fill the beaker with water that is 10 seconds removed from a running boil. Stir slightly and let the coffee steep for four minutes. Slowly, push the grounds down with a plunger of two finely netted screens. A thick, rich coffee soaks up all the oil of the grinds and floats to the top.

Type of grind recommended: coarse
