A brew kit including a Bodum Chambord French Press and a 12oz bag of Guatemala Guaya'b whole bean coffee. Kevin, our Head Trainer, put this brew kit together. He says:
I love brewing at home with the French Press because it’s easy and delicious - I’d even say the pillowy mouthfeel is luxurious!
Guatemala Guaya’b is a great choice for the French Press with its sweet, inviting flavors of chocolate and cherry, each sip is like a bite of a decadent truffle. Guaya’b is also a Smithsonian Migratory Bird-Friendly certified coffee, which makes me smile when I watch local birds visit my feeders over a nice cup of coffee, with or without milk!
My main tip for brewing with the french press is to grind your coffee fresh right before you brew it! You want your coffee to be about the size of coarse salt. If it’s too difficult to press the plunger down to stop brewing, your coffee is too fine, and will come out sludgy.
