If you want to make a perfect cup of coffee at home use a French press. Coffee at a coffee shop can be hit or miss (lots of misses). The keys to making a great cup of coffee are using freshly ground beans and water that’s hot, but not too hot. The ratio of beans to water is subjective to taste, find what’s right for you–there is no wrong way! And experiment with different beans; where the beans are from and how they are roasted can make a HUGE difference…sample grinding different beans to find what makes you happy.
Over the years I’ve made coffee every which way there is to make coffee, and using a French press is the easiest, quickest, and most reliable way to brew the perfect cup.

How To Make French Press Coffee:
Measure your water and bring it to a boil.
Coarsely grind coffee beans and add to the pot (use whatever ratio of beans to water YOU PREFER…I like strong coffee, and use a ratio of 1 Tbsp whole beans for every 4 oz. of water)
Once water boils, set aside uncovered 1 minute to cool. You don’t want to use boiling water…in one minute it will be just right.
After one minute, pour water over beans.
Cover and let brew for 4 minutes.
After 4 minutes, slowly plunge the filter through the coffee.
Pour and drink and enjoy.
That’s all there is to great coffee. Keep it simple.
