BREWING TIP NO. 1:

More or less agitation will affect the extraction rate of the coffee.

BREWING TIP NO. 2:

When pressing the plunger top down, hold the lid in place to make sure the filter disk is level.

BREWING TIP NO. 3:

Pour and serve your coffee right away. It will continue to brew if left in the French Press.

BREWING TIP NO. 4:

H20 @ 205 degrees is boiled water resting for 30 seconds.

GRIND TIP NO. 1:

All grinders produce a mix of course and fine particles – none are perfect, however, burr grinders produce far more uniformity. If your cup is too strong or bitter, adjust your grind slightly coarser. If it is too weak or sour, adjust slightly finer.

WATER TIP NO. 1:

Filtered or Spring only: no tap, no distilled, minerals aid in the extraction process.

COFFEE TIP NO. 1:

The coffee beans make a difference in the quality and clarity in your cup of coffee. This means you need certified organic, shade-grown and freshly roasted coffee.

COFFEE TIP NO. 2:

The best equipment makes the difference.
