Add the coarse ground coffee

Pour water to just below the rim

For the best brew, use water that's 30 seconds off the boil.

Water temperature affects how efficiently coffee flavours are pulled from the grounds. The ideal temperature for brewing with a coffee press should be between 90–96°C (195–205°F).

Brewing with a coffee press is also called full-immersion brewing, as the grounds are immersed for the entire brew.

Make sure to clean the grounds stuck in the filter after every use. This will help your next coffee taste as good as the one before it.
