Coal Town Coffee and Tea
Homer Spit - Homer, Alaska

A French press makes a rich, deep, and intensely flavorful cup of coffee. 

To make coffee using the French press, start with 3 tablespoons of coffee for every 8 ounces of water.

Grind the coffee coarsely (8-10 seconds using a blade grinder) and add water just off a boil. 

If your coffee is very fresh, the grounds may ‘bloom’, or expand rapidly, when the water is poured on top.  Wait a few seconds for the blooming to subside, stir gently, then add the rest of the water.

Allow to steep 4 minutes, then press and pour.
