How to make a french press coffee

What is a french press?

The French press, also known as a cafetière is one of the most popular ways to brew coffee. A french press is a glass beaker with a plunger and a filter, that presses hot water through ground coffee.

The best grind for french press

The best grind size for a French Press / cafetière would be a medium to coarse grind, with uniformity and consistent grind size throughout. If the grind size is too fine it will pass through the filter and if it’s too coarse it may clog the filter.
