French Press Brew Guide

Classic by design and full-bodied by nature, the French Press or Plunger is easy to brew, very consistent and super reliable.


Bodum French Press (4 cup)
Kettle & Filtered water
Stirring device
Fresh KoKo coffee


  1. Bring filtered water to the boil and wait till it cools to 97° (about 45-60 secs).
  2. Warm up your French Press by rinsing it with very hot water to maintain temperature while brewing.
  3. Weigh out 38 grams of whole bean coffee. Grind the coffee so that it’s about as coarse as breadcrumbs then add it to the press.
  4. Place your French Press on scales and tare.
  5. Start your timer then add 300ml of water to the Press making sure to saturate all the grounds.
  6. After 1 minute, break the crust with your stirring device and give it a good stir.
  7. Add a further 300ml of water to the Press and place the top on without pressing the plunger down. Let that baby brew.
  8. At 4:00 minutes firmly press the plunger all the way down.
  9. Let all the fines settle to the bottom of the French Press for a minute or so, serve, and enjoy!

For larger of smaller Presses, the brewing ratio is 60-65g ground coffee per 1L filtered water.

To make cleaning easier, pull the plunger up a little so it’s not resting on the ground coffee.
