- 1. Medium grind your coffee beans until they resemble course crumbs. You do not want to grind them too fine or they will go through the strainer on the french press and make your coffee grainy.
- 2. Boil your water in a tea kettle until just before boiling, or microwave on high for 5-8 minutes, until the water is hot but not boiling. I took the temperature of mine and it was 205 degrees.
- 3. Pour the coffee grounds into the bottom of your french press, then pour in the hot water and stir vigorously to combine. Allow to steep for 5 minutes (do less time if you prefer a lighter bodied coffee). After steeping, press the coffee to separate the coffee grounds from the liquid.
- 4. Serve immediately while hot. Flavor your coffee with cream and or sugar if desired.
