The French Press

The French Press

Welcome to another installment of Rock Canyon's how-to series on brewing, you guessed!

Now if you're someone that prefers to know the history of said French Press prior to giving any consideration to employing it as a brew method, start here: History of the French Press

That aside, whether this is the 1st or 51st blog post you've found about making a French Press...we're going to show you the Rock Canyon Way, which is to say the methodology we've found works best with our coffees. 

We like to start with our Breakfast Blend and an eight cup french press (we figure the more the merrier). Other than that you’ll need a few more things: 

  • 34oz of purified water just off boil 
  • 3 heaping tablespoons coffee (56g)
  • Stir stick (I like to use a chopstick) 
  • Timer

Note: for this recipe we are using a ratio of 1:16 coffee to water. You can adjust coffee and water to taste. You can use the ratio as your guide if using a different sized french press as well! 

Step 1: 

Grind coffee. You’ll want around the coarseness of sea salt.

Step 2: 

Place ground coffee in your french press and pour your hot water over the grounds. Set timer. 

Step 3: 

When the timer reaches 3 minutes, stir the grounds. Once the timer reaches 4 minutes place the lid on the french press and slowly plunge. 

Step 4: 

Pour coffee into a mug and enjoy!
