French coffee machines offer a rich taste and simplicity of design and operation that are of great interest to coffee lovers who want the best brewing experience possible. Still, if you are used to buying lattes and Americanos, or relying on single-service machines or coffee filters, you will need to go through a few essentials to get to the perfect cup.
Ideally, your design will start with whole beans, so you can control the degree of milling that must be harsh for French presses. Set up your kettle while preparing the beans, in a coarse grinder or in an electric spice grinder, just pulsating shortly. When grinding your beans in the store's coffee hallway, select the "rough" option on the machine.
Measure your coffee
Put 2 tablespoons of ground coffee in 8 ounces of water on the bottom of the glass beaker. So if you want to start your day with two 8-ounce cups of coffee, you'll need 4 ounces of ground coffee and 16 ounces of almost boiling water. You can adjust the amount of ground coffee to the roast strength and try it if you are more experienced with the French Bodum type. For dark roasts you can go for example with 3 tablespoons. Also, when rubbing your beans, hold a dough brush close to brush the ground coffee from the base and top of the mill and in the French Press.
Add hot water and mix
Add water just before cooking about 6 inches above the top of the mug to allow it to play and stir in the ground coffee. Throw in an estimated level of your cups. For example, in the 34-ounce Chambord, if you make two cups for a total of 16 ounces, half the glass bottle. If you make more coffee, add more water, but always leave at least an inch sloping up. Mix hot water and ground coffee 30 times with a wooden spoon to mix.
Brewing and spilling
Install the piston unit to the glass lamp. Align the built-in strainer with the lip on the front of the cup. Set the microwave timer or smartphone clock for five minutes. When the bell rings, gently push the plunger until it reaches the top of the now compressed floor. Gently pour the coffee into a glass.
To clean the French press, remove the piston assembly and rinse under water. Carefully wash the cup. Regularly disassemble the piston and carefully clean. These parts are safe in the dishwasher.
