How to brew:
- Weigh out 100 g of ground coffee – very course grind size.
- Place French Press on scale, make sure to tare it, and pour grounds evenly at the bottom.
- De-gas the coffee with a bloom phase by pouring 100 g of almost boiling water (enough to wet all of your grinds but no more) in the French Press.
- Let sit for roughly 60 seconds.
- Fill the French Press up with 500 g of cold filtered water.
- Replace plunger-lid back on press and push plunger down to just above water line.
- Place in fridge and let brew for 15-20 hours depending on preference – the longer the stronger.
- Push plunger all the way down and serve!
