    Great info, I used to stir my coffee. Plus I never measured. Thanks Todd.

  4. 17g of water is 17milliliters, right ? For 45g of coffee that’s 765ml or roughly 2 cups of joe

    • @BigBen yep, pretty much! Although if you want to be super precise, it’s probably best to measure the water by weight and also when you’re pouring it into the french press. 17mL at 39 degrees may be 17g, but at 212 degrees, 17mL would be 16g.

    So is the grind for this more of a medium to medium-fine grind? I tried this using the lowest of the coarse settings (13 of 16) on my conical burr grinder (capresso infinity) and it came out very watery and weak. Please advise, I’m dying for a good french press method.

    • We generally recommend going more coarse for French press. How hot was your water and how long did you let it brew for? It might be that you need to let it extract longer, but by all means, play around with a finer grind to get the body you’re looking for!

  6. The only problem I have with french presses is that my coffee cools off too soon. I leave it for a few minutes and it’s already too cold to drink.
