When using a French Press, it is very important to use a coarse grind to prepare the coffee. We use the ratio 1:14 (1 gr coffee for 14 ml of water). To prepare two cups of coffee, you will need 25 gr of coffee for 350 ml of water (see the picture below to get an idea )
If you do not have a coffee scale, you can use a soup spoon which carries around 8 grams per tablespoon more-or-less depending on the type of spoon you have.
Add the water. Initially put 100 ml of water and let it rest for about 1 minute.
After waiting for 1 minute, for the water to integrate with our coffee, add the rest of the water to complete 350 ml.
It is important to clarify that the water must be at a temperature between 88-92 C. If you do not have a thermometer don't worry. It is very simple, just boil water, and let it rest for about 2 minutes. Then, you will have the ideal temperature to prepare an excellent coffee.
Proceed to cover the French press and let it rest for about three minutes.
The total time that the water lasts integrating with the coffee is about 4 minutes. 1 minute initially when we added 100 ml of water and 3 remaining minutes now that we added the rest of the water.
If you like your coffee a bit stronger you need to add more coffee and less water.
Lastly, after the remaining 3 minutes, gently lower the plunger of the French Press.
Finally, oxygenate the drink before serving it. This gives more consistency to our drink and enables the enhancement of the aromas and flavours.
Now you are able to enjoy an excellent 100% Colombian coffee, ENJOY!
