Shall we try?
Step 1Grind the coffee, coarsely. If you don't have a coffee grinder, grinding with an object at hand - for example, a rolling pin - is quite suitable.
We take the following amount of ground grain per 100 ml of water:
- if the grind is very large - 8g,
- if it was ground on a coffee grinder and it came out medium or a little more, then 6-7g.
The lid with the piston of the French press must be removed and the ground coffee poured into an empty, dry flask.
Pour hot water (note: the flask may have a microcrack or air bubble, so before pouring boiling water into the flask, insert a long spoon and pour water on it, not on the glass).
Cover with a lid with a piston, but do not lower the piston! The lowered piston practically stops the brewing process, so it should be lowered:
- for very coarse grinding after 6-10 minutes,
- for medium grinding after 4 minutes,
- or do not lower it at all, because the piston in any position will help to filter particles of ground grain.
Enjoy your drink! Be careful - the heat of this temperature can be dangerous!
This time we prepared HONDURAS ANA NATURAL monovariety in a French press. This coffee gives a sparkling acidity thanks to the sweet pineapple, the taste of which cannot be confused with anything else. Yellow mango notes are combined in a velvety coffee body with hints of kiwi. It's a real tropical symphony of flavor in your cup! You can order it with home delivery here
