Brewing That Perfect Cup of Coffee


Our dear friend Lévana Kirschenbaum always serves a perfectly brewed coffee. What’s her secret? A French press, of course! About three years ago I picked up one of these presses and my cuppa java’s taste went from pretty good to superb!

French-Press

Coffee aficionados have long used the French press to indulge their buds and nose. Be sure to use freshly ground coffee beans and spring water for best results.

  1. Pour boiling spring water into the pot. Swirl it, let it sit for a minute and pour it out.
  2. Measure coarsely ground, coffee into the pot, allowing 2 tablespoons per cup. Pour in 3/4 cup just boiled water  for each cup you want to prepare. Cover with the lid with the strainer just touching the top of the water.
  3. Allow the coffee to steep for 4 to 6 minutes (depending on how strong a brew you prefer). After it steeped to your preferred strength slowly push down the strainer as far as possible (thereby trapping the grounds).
  4. Serve it immediately with milk or half-and-half.

Enjoy, gentle reader, enjoy!
