French Press

Be bold and be beautiful

Prep It

  • Food Scale (Recommended)
  • Quality Burr Grinder (Recommended)
  • Kettle 
  • 55 Grams of your favorite Kamiak Coffee (Coarsely ground if you dont have a grinder)
  • 32 fl oz French Press
  • 950 Grams of good tasting water (Roughly 4 Cups) 
  • We recommend a 1:16 coffee to water ratio by weight (Adjust recipe as needed)

Brew It

  • Heat water to 195' - 205' F if you're using an electronic temperature controlled kettle. If not, bring water to a boil
  • Rinse and warm your french press with 50 grams of the hot water. Keep the remaining 900g heating 
  • Grind your Kamiak Coffee to a coarse grind size (coarse sea salt esq)
  • Add grounds to French Press carafe and shake to level 
  • If you boiled the water, remove from heating element and let sit for 30 seconds to bring the temperature down to about 200' F 
  • Pour half of the water onto the grounds. Give the coffee a gentle stir to promote even extraction.
  • Fill the carafe with the remaining water and give it one more gentle stir
  • Replace the lid and plunger. DO NOT PLUNGE. Let steep for 4 minutes.
  • After 4 minutes of steeping, gently plunge the coffee with even pressure.
  • Serve and enjoy. Avoid leaving leftover coffee in the French Press to avoid over extraction for a second cup!
