How To Brew: Plunger

Brew Guides

What you’ll need

  • 60g coarse grind coffee
  • 1000g filtered water heated to 90-96°C
  • 8 Cup Plunger (or ‘French Press’)
  • Spoon


  1. Add coffee to plunger.
  2. Pour water over grounds ensuring to evenly soak and to form a crust.
  3. Allow to steep for 5 minutes.
  4. Slowly plunge and serve.
  5. (Pro Tip). After steeping, use the back of a spoon to break the surface of the formed crust with 5 strokes – avoid over stirring. Peel away excess grounds for a cleaner cup and less sludge.
