French Press Brewing Method

Normally we tell everyone to drink their coffee however they like, but here are some tips on how we like to brew our coffee to extract the best flavor from our blends.

French Press for our Medium and Dark Roasts.

Grind sizes
  • Use a coarse grind.


  • Whatever size of French Press you use, a good rule of thumb is to follow a 1:12 ratio of coffee to water. So, for every 1 gram of coffee, add 12 grams of water. We have found that 4.5 or even 5 tablespoons of our coffee give us the best flavor from our roast using 24oz of water.  but experiment from there to find the ratio that works for your taste.


  1. PREP: Boil water to a range of 195F°-205F° degrees, ensure to have enough water to pre heat the press and your mug if not already done. Pre heating helps maintain the consistent temperature so you’re not adding steaming hot coffee to a cold mug or press.

  2. Remove preheated water from press, add coffee ground, add your water and let sit for 30 seconds, then use a spoon and gently stir the mixture and let steep for 4 mins.

  3. SERVE: Lightly push the plunger all the way to the bottom then pour into your Dark Pool Coffee mug and enjoy!
