How to Press Coffee: Pressing coffee is easy, once you learn how. To make it, you need coarsely ground coffee and a source for hot water, such as a teakettle. Measure 1 tablespoon of coffee grounds for every 4 ounces (118ml) of water, or add more if you like bold coffee. Your hot water should be “just off the boil,” or between 195°-205°F or 91°-96°C. After adding hot water to the press, let it steep for 3 to 4 minutes before you press it. After that, you can sit down and enjoy one of the best-tasting cups of coffee you’ve ever had.
Special Attachment for Hot Cocoa
With the Hamilton Beach French Press, not only can you prepare hot coffee and tea, you have the added benefit of frothing hot cocoa. That’s because in addition to its primary coffee and tea functionality, the Hamilton Beach French Press comes with a frothing attachment for mixing hot cocoa. Now adults and children alike can enjoy their favorite delicious hot beverage from the comfort of home.
