    🧑🏻‍🍳 Method:⁣⁣

    1. Weigh out your coffee, we recommend 20g, however adjust according to taste.

    2. While you put your kettle to boil with around 370 - 380ml of water, add your coffee grounds to your french press.

    3. Pour your freshly boiled water onto your coffee grounds in a clockwise motion.
    4. Let the coffee brew for 2 minutes, then using a spoon stir to break the crust that will have formed on the top.

    5. Let sit for another 2 minutes so the grounds can settle before plunging halfway, using the mesh filter as a strainer.

    6. Pour the freshly brewed coffee into your favourite mug and enjoy!
