Bring enough water to fill the French press to a boil. For a 17-oz press, you’ll need about 350 grams (12 ounces).
While the water is heating, grind your coffee. French press coffee calls for a coarse, even grind. We recommend starting with a 1:12 coffee-to-water ratio. If you’re using 350 grams of water, you’ll want 30 grams of coffee.
To start, gently pour twice the amount of water than you have coffee onto your grounds. For example, if you have 30 grams of coffee, you’ll want to start with 60 grams of water. Give the grounds a gentle stir with a bamboo paddle or chopstick. Allow the coffee to bloom for 30 seconds.
