Be Your Own Barista:  Fine French Press

Want to know the secret to brewing the best French press coffee?  Read on...

The French press is a classic brew method that provides a full-bodied, easy-to-brew cup of coffee.  Personally, we enjoy taking the French press on camping trips to easily brew up two cups of coffee in a breeze.  

Here’s what you’ll need…

Step 1

      Bring 20oz of water to a boil.
Step 2
      Grind 35 grams of coffee coarse.
Step 3
      Rinse French Press with a little bit of the hot water, then pour out the rinse water.
Step 4
      Pour 35 grams of fresh coarse-ground coffee to the French press.
Step 5
      Start your timer and pour 455 grams of your hot water (just off boil, 204°) into the French press over the ground.  Make sure to saturate all of the grounds.
Step 6
      Once you finish pouring in the hot water (around 0:30), gently stir the crust formed by the grounds once or twice to ensure all of the grounds are saturated.
Step 7
      Let the coffee brew, untouched, until your timer reaches 3:30.
Step 8
      Once your timer hits 3:30, plunge the French press slowly so you finish at 3:45.  
Step 9
      Serve immediately.  
Tips

    Serve the French press immediately and refrain from pouring out the last bit of coffee at the bottom!

 

If your coffee is tasting weak, try fining up your grounds. If it’s tasting overly strong, coarsen up your grounds slightly.

The Pleasures and Benefits of a Great Cup of Coffee

Reaching for that first cup of coffee in the morning is a ritual favored by many. Even those who skip breakfast are often eager to enjoy that first jolt of caffeine. Like many foods and beverages, coffee went through its period of being demonized as detrimental to a person's health a couple of decades ago. But, that concern is long gone now. Science has given coffee a whole new image. Coffee, in addition to being the first delightful taste of the morning, brings with it a host of mental and physical health benefits. So, the next time you pour yourself a cup, enjoy how good it tastes and remember how good it is for you.

Are coffee drinkers healthier?

In June 2017, two studies using big data revealed that coffee drinkers have a significantly lower chance of suffering from a number of serious illnesses than non-coffee drinkers. The first study carried by the UK's Imperial College in association with a number of other European medical institutions examined over half a million people in ten European countries. It is the largest investigation ever undertaken into the connection between coffee and mortality. The researchers found that coffee drinkers had significantly lower incidents of liver, digestive, and circulatory diseases, as well as male suicide, and cancer in women.

Let Freshly Roasted Coffee Bloom

Freshly roasted coffee contains many aromatics and gasses that add to its aroma and flavor. They also, however, have a lot of carbon dioxide, which produces a sour taste. Letting coffee bloom gives this carbon dioxide time to escape so that it doesn't interfere with your brew's taste.
