HOW TO MAKE COFFEE

Our quick tips and must-knows for making the perfect Kick Ass® cup of coffee.

For more detailed information and secrets of the universe, head over to our Coffee 101 section, where we reveal some of coffee's mysterious and delicious secrets.

Overview

  • Boil cold, clean water.Grind beans and add to the French Press (see measurements below).
  • Let water rest for at least 30 seconds after bringing it to a boil.
  • Fill French Press with the desired amount of water (see measurements below).
  • Watch the coffee bloom (fresher coffee results in a better bloom).
  • Give the grounds a good stir.
  • Let it brew for 4-5 minutes.
  • Plunge gently and serve.

French Press Tips

Water

Water makes up 98.5% of a cup of coffee. If the tap water tastes good to drink, it's good to make coffee with. Use it cold and freshly poured from the tap. (Let the tap run for a few seconds first.) If the tap water isn't great, then use natural spring water for best results.

Grinding

Grind fresh beans just before use. The French Press method calls for a coarse grind. The grind size should be between .75 mm and 1 mm. If the grind is too coarse it will make the coffee taste weak. If the grind is too fine, it will make the coffee taste bitter or too strong. For the most consistent outcome, we recommend a burr grinder.

Measurements

We recommend a coffee to water ratio of 50 grams (1.8 oz) of Ground coffee per 1 litre (34 fl oz) of water. In English, that's two heaping tablespoons for every ¾ cup of coffee. More if you're bold, less if you're not.

Storage

Coffee absorbs odours and deteriorates when it contacts air. Keep coffee tightly rolled in its Kicking Horse® Coffee valve bag or sealed in its Kicking Horse® Coffee can until ready to grind more beans. Store coffee in a dry, cool location, but not in the fridge or freezer.

About the French Press method

The French Press is the French-kiss of coffee brewing — it enables a more intimate experience with the flavour of the beans. Low-tech and time-honoured, just grind, pour and plunge. The result? A simple method and deliciously complex cup.
