How To Brew Your Coffee: French Press

Recipe from Level Ground Trading, a fair trade coffee company.

Since 1997, Level Ground has been passionate about connection. It started with small-scale coffee farmers in Colombia and it’s grown to a community of people who believe our choices matter.

You'll need: 55g (9 tablespoons) coarse grind coffee, and 1L (~4.25 cups) of water 


  1. Add ground coffee into french press

  2. Add water, just off the boil. Pour water in with lots of turbulence, saturating the grounds

  3. Stir with a non-metalic spoon

  4. Place the lid on, and press just below level

  5. Let stand for 4 minutes

  6. Press. Pour. Enjoy!
