saki University :: Expert French Press Tips

Fro of The Recylery and Ian from Gaslight Coffee Roasters
Yesterday we had our first installment of saki University, a free skillshare workshop. We teamed up with some of our favorite Chicago businesses Gaslight Coffee Roasters (Fullerton & Milwaukee) and The Recyclery. Huge thanks to Ian (Gaslight) and Fro (Recyclery)!!!

If you missed it, here's a lesson for you! We learned a bit about the factors that go into the perfect french press. Here are some EXPERT TIPS ON FRENCH PRESS.

• Water temperature should be between 195-205º. If you boil water, let it sit for 3-4 minutes after boiling.
• For french press a coarse grind of coffee is best
• 2 level tablespoons of course ground coffee per 6-8oz. of water.
• Pour water into french press, push the press up and down on top to make sure all the grounds are in contact with the water
• Let sit 4 minutes, then push press down slowly

Check out this expert video from Metropolis Coffee to get all these details in order!
