Pour

Allow your water to reach a boil, and then wait 45-60 seconds. Set a timer for 4:00 minutes. Carefully pour 600 grams (20 oz) of water over the grounds, filling the French Press to just below the bottom of the pouring spout. Let stand for one minute, allowing the coffee to absorb the water. Give a quick, gentle stir to evenly immerse the grounds into the brew . Cover the French Press.
