The French Press Kit

The French press is the most classic expression of a full immersion brewer. Characteristics of a French press include producing a full bodied cup with a rich flavor profile.

A coarse grind, with a coffee to water ratio of 1:15, is ideal for the French press. When using a full immersion brew method, it is extremely important to have a timer to monitor the brew time. Although it is one of the easiest brew methods, it is possible to produce overly extracted coffee by brewing the coffee too long.
