How to Brew Plunger Coffee

How to Make the Perfect Cup of Plunger Coffee

The French Press, also known as a coffee plunger, originated in the 1800s and is a popular and easy way to brew a great cup of coffee at home.

Here’s how to make your own at home:

Place 3 tablespoons of fresh DHUWA ground coffee (one per cup plus one for milk) in your  your French Press.

Fill glass jug 1/3 full with boiled water to wet coffee grounds. Leave for 30 seconds to allow coffee to bloom.

Fill rest of the way with boiled water, stir and insert plunger. Its filter should sit just above the water.

Let steep for at least 4 mins. Want a stronger brew? Let steep for up to 6 mins.

While you wait, warm milk to body temperature for a sweeter taste.

Slowly plunge the press and pour into your favourite mug.

We suggest plunging…

First Light if you like a bright and light black coffee.

Kickstart if you enjoy a great espresso or want to add milk.

Bigshot for a big coffee hit.
