  • 680 Grams Hot Water (195-200Degrees, or brought to a boil and allowed to sit for 30 seconds)

3. Place your French Press on your scale and tare the weight to 0 Grams.

4. “Bloom” the coffee. Add double the weight of your coffee (80 Grams) in water over the grounds and allow them to sit for 30 seconds. Start your timer.

5. At 30 Seconds, pour water over the coffee until the scale reads 680 Grams.

7. At 4 minutes, slowly press the plunger down, stopping just before the coffee grounds.

8. Immediately serve, or pour into a carafe to completely decant the French Press.
