Plunger Brewing Guide

For this brewing method immerse a coarsely ground coffee in water for 4-5 minutes and enjoy a full-bodied, rich coffee - just as people have for over 200 years. This method has its roots in Europe and can brew just one cup or more depending on the size of the vessel.

Plunger- Also known as French Press, and Coffee Press
Scales (optional)
Coffee Grind Size - Coarse
Boiling Water


1. Start with delicious, freshly ground and roasted coffee.

2. Pre-heat your cup and Plunger vessel with boiling water.

3. Tip out water from the Plunger vessel once heated.

3. Add one, rounded tablespoon of ground coffee per cup to the plunger (60g – 100g of coffee per litre of water)

4. Next, add the required cups of freshly boiled water to the Plunger vessel and allow it to bloom (sit) for 4-5 minutes.

5. Gently stir after 4 minutes to ensure all grounds are saturated 

6. Place Plunger lid on top of the vessel and slowly press down until it stops on the coffee bed

Your coffee is now ready to serve.

Tip - Any remaining coffee sitting in the plunger will continue to brew, decant to prevent over-extraction of your second cups.

Strong resistance in the plunger indicates that the grind may be too fine and needs to be ground coarser. The strength and flavour of the coffee can be adjusted to your liking by altering the brew time, grind size and the amount of coffee.
