How To Make French Press Coffee

Here’s how you make the perfect french press coffee that keeps all the coffee flavors in your cup. Jumpstart your day with this easy to follow recipe!

Preparation: 2 minutes
Cooking: 10 minutes
Total: 12 minutes



  • 4cupswater
  • ½cupgood-quality whole coffee beans,(32 grams)


  1. Boil water in a kettle. While the water is heating, grind the beans to a very coarse grind. Add the beans to the bottom of a French press.

  2. Once the water reaches a boil, remove it from the heat and wait for 45 seconds. Pour enough water in the French press to wet the beans. Give them a quick stir, if needed, so that they are all evenly saturated with the water. Wait for exactly 1 minute.

  3. Pour in the remainder of the water, then give the coffee another quick stir so that the water is evenly dispersed. Cover with a lid and wait 3 minutes.

  4. Once time is up, gently press down the plunger until it is nice and tight on the bottom. Pour out the coffee immediately. (And if there is leftover coffee in the French press, pour it out into a different container to store until ready to drink.)
