How to make strong coffee in your French Press:
The French Press or Cafetière style of brewing is very common. Understandably so, it's inexpensive, quick and makes a delicious cup.
Let's get down to the detail, how to make a strong coffee in your French press or Cafetière. First of all, start with our gymBrew coffee blend! The following the below steps:
1. Weigh & Grind
Use a medium to coarse grind, roughly 22g per cup.
2. Grounds & Water
Pop the coffee grinds in the cafetiere, slowly add the boiling water ensuring the grinds are completely covered. Use 170ml of water per cup.
3. Brew & Pour
Leave the coffee for around 5 minutes, longer if you like it even stronger. Place the plunger onto the pot and slowly press down. If there is a lot of resistance, there may be too much coffee or it’s too finely ground. When fully pressed, pour into your favourite mug.
Easy - your lovely strong coffee is done. Enjoy!
