Coffee Tutorial: French Press

Posted by on

Welcome to our first tutorial during which we will teach you how to get the most out of your Fernweh coffee beans. In this opportunity we will focus on how to brew coffee using the french press also known as plunger pot, melior, coffee machine piston and press pot. Invented in France in the mid-1800s, this easy to use brewer will be your mornings best friend.

What you will need: medium-coarse coffee, french press and hot water.


Step 1 - Preheat your french press. Adding some hot water will elevate the plungers temperature helping achieve temperature stability throughout the whole process. Let water heat the cylinder for a moment and empty the french press.

Step 2 - Add coffee and water. At Fernweh Coffee Subscription we like the 1:10 ratio: 10 grams of coffee per 100 ml of water. Spoiler alert: the perfect ratio doesn't exist. As it depends on your taste, we encourage you to variate the amounts in order to find your ideal formula.

TIP Water is best used at 91-96 degrees, but if you can't mesure the temperature: boil and let it rest a bit before using it.

Step 3 - Place the lid and let sit for 3-4 minutes.

Step 4 -  Slowly plunge, serve and enjoy your delicious Fernweh coffee!
