How to Make French Press Coffee

Step-by-Step

  • 1Spoon grounds into carafe (two tablespoons per eight ounces of water)
  • 2Pour water just off a boil into carafe, getting all the grounds wet (they will rise to the top). Leave at least ½ to ¾ of an inch of room between the carafe's rim and top of the grounds/water.
  • 3Let grounds soak for four minutes.
  • 4Press filter through grounds to bottom of carafe, then pour.
  • 5NOTES:A French press brews the fullest-flavored cup of coffee, thanks to its stainless steel filter. While a paper filter soaks up the coffee's natural oils (where much of the flavor is held), the press' filter allows the oils through. But without a paper filter, there will be a little coffee sediment at the bottom, so leave that last sip in the mug.

    Best for: brewing one to four good-sized cups (depending on size of carafe) of full-flavored coffee that will be served right away.
