                        Brewing coffee in a FRENCH PRESS

It is easy to prepare coffee in a French press, and it's always interesting to brew a delicious cup of coffee. The final result is influenced by several factors which I would like to mention:

First, coffee should be fresh, roasted not earlier than three - four weeks prior brewing, the later - the better. None of manipulations with stale coffee will let you get a really delicious and aromatic drink in a French press.

Second, to get the right grind, you need a good coffee 
grindstone, where the grind size is controlled manually. An even grind, which a conventional electric coffee grinder can not achieve, is required for the proper extraction of coffee in a French - press.

Third, only high-quality drinking water should be used. Water quality plays a huge role in the preparation of all coffee drinks, and the French press is not an exception. Any off-flavors in the water can have a significant impact on the taste of produced coffee.

Fourth, you need to observe the correct dosage and the time of preparation.


                                Brewing coffee

 

               


1.Bring the water to a boil. It is better to turn off the kettle immediately after reaching the boiling point. The optimum temperature for brewing coffee in the french press is 92-96 degrees Celsius.

 

2. Make a coarser grind of freshly roasted coffee beans. The recommended dimension of grinding is of of a grain of sugar. Use a hand-grinder. Pour the ground coffee into a French press in the rate of 7-8 g coffee per 1 cup of 100 ml of water.

                                                            

3. Put coffee to the French press and slowly fill it with water from the kettle, trying to moisten it completely. Pour half of water required for the given number of cups. Leave to brew for one minute. Stir with a spoon and add the second half of the water. If you're a fan of spices, they should be added right now. Cover with a lid and leave the drink to infuse for three minutes more.

 




4. After four minutes, slowly dip the plunger. Leave the French press for two-three minutes, until the precipitate falls to the bottom. You can then pour the coffee into cups and add milk and sugar to taste.
Always brew as much coffee as you are planning to consume within 10 minutes. Coffee cools rapidly, and the subsequent cup will not be such delicious.
Also remember that сoffee kept in a French press continues to brew even when a plunger is immersed.
This may lead to a greater extraction, consequently the coffee will taste bitter.
