French Press

This method of coffee preparation was already applied for patent by two frenchmen (Mayer and Delforge).

In 1929 the design was significantly improved by the Italian Attilia Calimani and gave the French press the form and design that has been maintained until today.

 

Coffee for Frenchpress

 

There is not one specific type of bean especially suited for this kind of coffee preparation. Depending on your preferences, aroma and taste of the chosen bean is beautifully developped when brewed with the french press.

In most cases, however, it is recommend using a lighter to medium roast with a high proportion of Arabica, 100% Arabica blends or single origins.

 

Coffees that we can recommend and enjoy: Caffe Varesina Top (intense taste, balanced aroma).

 

Grind level for French Press

 

The grindness for French press is coarse (coarser then for e.g. Drip Brew , a bit like sea salt)

 

Amount of coffee

 

For the preparation of 1 Liter we recommend approx. 60g of ground coffee - 8 table spoons (7,5g per spoon).

This specifications should be seen as a rough guidance, depending on personal taste and type of coffee bean.

Best you try different doses and let yourself be surprised by the (positive) results !
