What you will do

Step 1:    Heat enough water for 450 ml and some extra.  Heat between 200º to 205º.  You can also let water come to a boil, rest for 30 seconds, then use.

Step 2:    Grind 30 gm of fresh coffee to medium coarseness.  Slightly coarser than table salt; just as you would use for a regular filter coffee.

Step 3:    Pre-heat device by pouring in a small amount of heated water.  Swirl water to heat sides.  Dispose of water. 

Step 4:    Drop freshly ground coffee in french press container, and zero out digital scale.

Step 5:    Pour in heated water (200ºF to 205ºF), evenly covering and wetting all coffee grounds.  Fill french press container with 450 ml of water for a 15/1 ratio of water and coffee (30 gm of coffee, 450 ml of hot water).  Start timer for 5 minutes.

Step 6:    Place french press plunger just above the coffee slurry.  Let stand without moving.

Step 7:    Once timer finishes, stir the coffee crust that sits at the top of the brew 3 times.  Take 2 spoons and scoop of the small bits of coffee floating at the top as well as all the foam and dispose.  Use a side cup of hot water to wash spoons each time you remove foam.  Place plunger back on french press container, sitting just above the brewing coffee, and let stand untouched for another 5 minutes.  This will allow all of the grounds and sediment to fall to the bottom.  This WILL NOT over extract your coffee, but provide a much sweeter cup as well as a heavy body to the coffee mouth feel.

Step 8:    Once timer finishes, DO NOT plunge the french press plunger, but leave at the top of the brewed coffee.  Holding the top of the french press, pour your deliciously brewed coffee into your favorite coffee cup.

Step 9:    Enjoy the moment.
