  •    We recommend that you buy fresh coffee beans and grind them on demand to prepare your beverage. Coffee is a product susceptible to rapid oxidation, this process is accelerated by grinding for the simple reason that grinding increases the surface that is exposed to oxygen.

    • FRENCH PRESS ESPRO

      GEAR USED: 

      Espro Press P3 18 oz:

      Ratio 1/16.5

      300 ml water

      18 g in

      265 g out

      4 min brew time

      Temp 94-96 C

      Target EY 18-20%

      Grind size 700-900 microns

      When we brew French Press we aim for the balance between sweetness and body. The grind size is finer than regular french press recipes, one of the reason being the micro filters Espro Press uses ( which we highly recommend). If you have a really basic filter in your french press you should grind coarser and extend your brew time. 

      First step is pouring around 80 grams of water over the grinded coffee, in circular moves,  trying to wet all the coffee so it makes contact with the hot water and starts blooming. This should take around 15 seconds, wait for extra 25 seconds and pour the rest of the hot water, in a circular move, so you constantly wet all the coffee particles that tend to stay afloat. The aim is to extract as even as possible the coffee particles, keeping them immersed in the hot water. Finish the extraction at minute 4 and try to move the coffee in a coffee server as it can keep extracting in the press.
