Brew delicious, fresh and aromatic coffees with this 1000ml French Press/cafetiere.
Simply add your favourite ground coffee to the French Press and cover with boiled water, place the lid on top and allow the coffee to brew for 3-5 minutes. Once your coffee has brewed, gently push down the plunger to separate the grounds and enjoy your freshly brewed coffee.
When preparing your coffee with our French Press Kettle, we recommend using about one tablespoon of freshly ground coffee per cup, with a cup measurement of 125ml (this is about 6 to 8 grams if you are weighing out the coffee).
Boil your water and allow it to cool for a few moments before pouring, as overly hot water can scald your coffee. Pour a little water over the coffee grounds, just enough to ensure that they are well soaked and can be stirred. Then fill the French Press kettle to the desired level according to how many cups you want.
Fit the plunger into place, but do not use it just yet. Instead, leave it in place as a lid for 3-5 minutes to allow the coffee to brew properly.
Once the time is up, press down the plunger with a smooth, firm motion. Do not hurry the press as this can allow grounds to escape into your coffee; allow the plunger to proceed slowly. Once the plunger is all the way down, all the coffee grounds should be trapped under the filter, leaving you with smooth, delicious French Press coffee to enjoy.
At Coffee Direct, we have a wide range of delicious coffee beans that have been pre-ground for use with our French Press Kettle.
