How to use a French Press, a.k.a "Press Pot"

  1. Pre-warm pot by filling with hot water. Dump out water when ready to brew coffee or tea.
  2. Spoon coffee or tea into press pot. How much depends on your preference. A good place to start is about 1 Tablespoon (3 Teaspoons) of ground coffee per 6-7 ounces of water, and about half this much for most tea.
  3. Pour water that has just come to a boil into the press pot in the proportion just mentioned above. Put the lid on top, and let the coffee or tea steep for 3-5 minutes.
  4. After 3-5 minutes, when coffee grounds (or tea leaves) had mostly settled to the bottom, push the plunger down to separate the grounds (or leaves) from the coffee (or tea).
  5. Pour directly from press pot into cups.
