Once you learn how easy it is to make the perfect cup of french press coffee, you may never use your coffee maker again! Step-by-step photos included.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 2 servings


  • Finely ground coffee 4-5 scoops or 1/3 cup depending on how strong you like your coffee
  • Boiling water 3-4 cups
  • Half-and-half cream and sweetener for serving agave coffee syrup, coconut sugar, honey, ect


  • Place ground coffee in a french press pot. Pour boiling water over grounds, filling the french press 3/4 full. Let sit 4 minutes so the coffee grounds can "bloom" in the boiling water.
