How Does Our French Press Work?
The Café Brew French Press works by steeping (brewing) coffee grounds and hot water. Once the coffee is done steeping, a metal mesh filter is pressed to the bottom of the Press which separates the coffee grounds from the liquid coffee destined for your mug. The metal mesh filter allows the natural oils found in coffee and fine particles to pass through it giving the coffee a thick body.
This process of steeping coffee and water together for an extended time is called immersion brewing because the coffee is immersed in the water as opposed to drip brewing where the water flows through the coffee grounds.
Since the coffee and water are mixed together it is easy to get a uniform extraction with immersion brewers. However this method is vulnerable to over extraction if the coffee is ground too small or the coffee and water are left to steep for too long.
The French Press Steeping (Brewing) Process Made Easy!
Add your favorite coffee (coarse grind) to the French Press. See our Tips below for recommended coffee amounts.
Fill with hot water and gently stir the coffee/water for a few seconds to ensure all of the coffee grounds are wet.
Place the top on the Press with the plunger pulled all of the way up to help keep the water hot while the coffee brews.
Steep the coffee for about 3-1/2 minutes. When steeping is complete, press the plunger downwards to separate the grounds from the coffee.
Once the plunger reaches the bottom, pour the brewed coffee slowly from the French Press into your mug and enjoy!

The Coffee Crust & Your Coffee
After steeping is complete, you will be left with a crust-like layer of coffee grounds on the surface that formed while the coffee was steeping. The final taste and texture of the coffee can be changed depending on how the crust is handled.
For a full bodied final result use a spoon to gently break up the crust and briefly stir it. This will cause most of the coffee to fall to the bottom of the beaker.
For a light bodied final result use the spoon to scoop the crust off and discard it. Keep scooping until you have removed all the floating coffee grounds.
