French Press are probably the easiest way to get started on your brewing journey.

Easy to brew, French Press is a loved by everyone be it a novice or a coffee connoisseur.

Here’s our step-by-step guide


• French Press
• Kettle✎
• Grinderℹ︎
• Scales
• Timer
• Stirring tool
• Mug(s)


• 12-15g or 2 table spoons of coffee beans

• 250g (mL) of just-boiled water♨︎

• Dash of warm milk (optional)

✎: We recommend using a kettle because it offers higher pouring precision. However, if you don’t have one, you can always use a standard one or literally any pouring source. Your coffee, your rules.

ℹ︎: If you don’t have a grinder, that’s OK! You can always use pre-ground coffee, though we recommend freshly ground because it does elevate the flavour of each brew.

♨︎: In our recipes, we measure water in grams because we use scales, and it’s easy to achieve precision this way. However, if you don’t have scales, the conversion is easy: 1g=1mL.

Step 1 : Put in the ground coffee

Take off the top and put your grinds for desired amount into the French Press.

Follow the ratio give above, so if you want to brew 250 ml of coffee, use 12-15g of coffee grounds, use 24-30gs for half a liter of coffee and so on.

Step 2 : Pour in the water

Pour the required amount of inside the French Press

Remember to follow the water ratio given in Step 1. Make sure to wet all your coffee grounds. Once you’ve added in all your water, your brewing time starts. Place the lid back on to maintain the temperature.

Step 3 (optional) : Remove the grounds

At 4 minutes mark, you can take off the lid and scoop out coffee grounds with a spoon.

This is an optional step but you’ll see significant difference in the finish product.

Step 4 : Take the plunge

Slowly push down the plunger to the bottom. But not all the way down.

Make sure not to push down too fast or some grinds may pass through the mesh filter.

Step 5 : Pour out the coffee

Pour out the coffee as soon as you plunge. You can add a dash of milk according to your prefrence.

If there is any coffee sitting after pouring out in the mug, make sure to transfer it to a clean new vessel to ensure brewing isn’t continued. Don’t leave extra coffee with grinds as it’ll leave to over extraction of coffee and ruin your coffee experience.

Tip : You can try different grind size to find and match your blend with your flavor. Go coarse if your feel your coffee is bitter, otherwise if you find your coffee a little weak or sour, grind it to a finer size.
