Simple French Press Recipe

Posted by Nate Lee on

If you're a coffee lover, you know there are countless ways to brew a delicious cup of coffee. One method that has stood the test of time is the French press. Also known as a press pot or plunger pot, the French press is a simple and effective way to brew coffee. In this post, we'll share a French press recipe that will result in a rich and flavourful cup of coffee every time.


What You'll Need:

  • Coarsely ground coffee beans
  • Hot water (around 93°C)
  • French press
  • Coffee scoop or tablespoon
  • Timer



  1. Start by boiling water and letting it cool for a minute or two to get the right temperature.
  2. Measure out the coffee beans according to the desired strength. We recommend a 1:15 coffee-to-water ratio. 
  3. Add the coffee grounds to the French press.
  4. Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds and stir to ensure all the coffee is saturated with water.
  5. Place the lid on the French press with the plunger in the up position and let the coffee steep for 3-4 minutes.
  6. Slowly press the plunger down, pushing the coffee grounds to the bottom of the press.
  7. Pour the coffee into your mug, and enjoy!



  • Longer Brew time for a lighter roast, shorter brew time for a darker roast.
  • Adjust the coffee-to-water ratio according to your preference.
  • If the coffee is too weak, add more coffee grounds next time. If it's too strong, reduce the amount of coffee used.


The French press is a classic brewing method that can produce a delicious and full-bodied cup of coffee. You can enjoy a rich and flavourful coffee at home with the right technique and ingredients. Try this French press recipe and see for yourself how easy and rewarding it can be to make a perfect cup of coffee.
