French Press


  • There's a golden ratio when it comes to great coffee, which can be scaled up or down as you need. For every 1ltr of water, we add 60g of coffee. So if your french press is enough for 1 x 250ml mug worth, add 15g coffee. If it is big enough for 2 x 250ml, add 30g. You get the idea. For this demo, ours holds 750ml so we're using 45g coffee.
