STEP BY STEP GUIDE FOR THE FRENCH PRESS
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
-A bag of Tag Coffee (Milk & Cookies would be delicious)
-A water boiler
-A French Press
-A scale or TBSP coffee scoop
-A grinder or pre-ground coffee
-700ml/g of water or 2 medium coffee cups of water poured into your boiler
-48g of coffee or 6-7tbsp of ground coffee
-Water just off boil
-Coarse ground coffee
-Bring your water to a boil.
-Measure out 48g of whole bean coffee or 6-7 tbsp of ground coffee.
-For whole bean, grind coarse. Your coffee should look a lot like Kosher salt.
-Place your French Press on your scale and pour your coffee in.
Tare your scale so that you can start with fresh weight/time.
Pour 700g/ml of boiling water over your coffee. There's no specific method of pouring, just make sure that you saturate all of your grounds.
Let that sit for 1 minute to allow the coffee to release gases and bloom.
-After 1 minute, take a spoon and break the crust. This pushes the coffee back into the water so that it brews.
-Continue your brew for another 5 minutes (6 minutes total).

-Place your lid back into the carafe and slowly press down. Make sure that you press gently until you reach the bottom so that you don't end up with sediment in your cup.
