I have read many recipes over the years and everyone seems to have a slightly different method for preparing the perfect french press coffee. I have tried quite a few and feel I have found my method which works best for me.
My first choice would be to go with a brew-over which I brew the coffee using the boiling water method. I have found that this tends to create a very bitter coffee, so I am not keen on drinking it in the morning. It is better to start with a less bitter brew, and as it gets easier the choice of brewing method changes.
Next I would like to experiment with the French press method. I have found this method the easiest, as it requires no steam and the coffee remains hot nearly the entire time. The only disadvantage with this method is that during the brewing process it is quite difficult to keep the hot coffee at the right temperature; you need to keep an eye on it and have it ready when you feel like caressing your sore throat.
Another method that I have tried is the Arabica coffee brewing method. This method requires that you pre-heat the coffee pot using a method that suits you. For me this is convenient as I can brew my coffee in the office. I do not have to worry about it gaining heat and having a thermostat reading keeping it at the right temperature. The only disadvantage with this method is that the brew is a little weaker compared to the standards brewed in Japan.
The brewing process itself is quite simple. You will need to have a filter coffee filter, a large metal kettle, some ice and the most important element, your coffee. The following steps are as follows:
Instructions Step By Step
- Prepare the coffee grounds by placing them in a coffee grinder. The important thing is to grind the grounds to a fine dust.
- You will need to put enough ice into the coffee pot so that the ice will not form a layer over the liquid.
- Brew the coffee using the Brew-over method.
- Remove the ice and pour the remaining ice into the coffee pot.
- Put the lid on the pot tightly.
- Brew the coffee for about five minutes.
- Remove the lid and keep the pot in a cool place away from lights.
- Within a few hours you will have a nice steaming coffee pot full of savory, cool coffee.
- When you brew the coffee pot of hot water, you will notice that the water will cool down and turn to a frosty frost. This is normal and you will have a perfectly roasted cup of coffee.
- When you brew a cup of fresh, cold coffee, the lid of the pot will form a seal. This keep the lower atmosphere of the pot venturing away from the heat of the stove. Hence, you may hear your co-workers say “time to brew another cup of coffee”.
