- French Press
- Coffee (coarsely ground)
- Preheat the French press by rinsing it with hot water and discarding the water. At this time you should also begin to heat the water in your kettle. –pictures of the set up
- Measure out 43 grams of your coarsely ground coffee. If you are grinding coffee at home, your grounds should look to be about the size of course sea salt.
- Place the French press on the scale. Add your coffee grounds and tare so that the scale reads zero.
- At this point remove your kettle from the heat source. Wait for it to cool slightly if you are using a traditional kettle. The temperature of the water should be between 195-205 degrees.
- Pour water into your French press until it reads 600 grams. Make sure as you are pouring all the grounds within the French press are being saturated. –action shot into a French Press
