The French Press

Brew the perfect Fyngan cup

Equipement list

  • Freshly roasted coffee (whole bean or Ground)
  • French press
  • Spoon for coffee and to stir
  • Grinder
  • Scale
  • Hot water
  • A stop watch or timer
  • A Fyngan cup 

Step 1 - Boil Water

Start to boil your water while you prepare the coffee and french press.

Step 2 - Weigh Coffee

With scale:

We will be using a ratio of 1:16. By having a 350ml size french press we will be adding around 22 grams of coffee. 

Without scale:

1 Tablespoon is approximately 5-6 grams of coffee. So you can add around 4-4.5 Tbsp of coffee. 


Step 3 - Grind Coffee

If you have purchased whole bean then please follow step if you already purchased ground coffee beans go ahead and skip this step.

 With your grinder set it to a coarse setting and grind the weighted beans. 

Step 4 - Add Coffee 

Add all the ground coffee to the French press. 

Step 5 - Add hot water

Add hot water from boil.

In our recipe we added 350ml of hot water. 

Step 6 - Now Wait...

Wait for around 5 mins. Get the spoon ready and clean up around ya!

Step 7 - Stir grounds

Stir with the spoon the coffee around to mix it up.

Step 8 - Scoop foam and coffee 

With a spoon scoop up all the floating coffee grounds and foam from the surface. 

Step 9 - Now we wait again...

For another 5-6 mins

This is the finesse to your Fyngan cup. As the coffee is still to hot to drink, the coffee grounds get to settle at the bottom.

Step 10 - Plundge till water level.

At this point you do not need to disturb the settled coffee grounds at the bottom. With the plunger, plunge until your filter screen reaches the top of the water. 

Step 11 - Pour and enjoy

Gently pour into your cup carefully as you do not want to unsettle the coffee grounds at the bottom.

Enjoy your Cup of Fyngan!
