|Brewed Guatemala coffee on the French Press|
I just figured in the shop, that I should summarize the steps in producing a well brewed french press, so I snap a couple of pictures along the brewing process and this is what I come up with.
|Including serving spoon when purchasing a Bodum press pot|
The most people who seeks a more powerful cup have a trend of adding an extra serving spoon. This of cause affects the press filter, contributing a filter that can't be pressed down all the way, which also maybe leading to a over extracted cup of coffee.
|8 serving spoons of ground coffee poured into a 8 cup french press|
- Thin coffee (Tea like appearance with coffee flavors): Under 4 minutes.
- General coffee (Coffee flavors which is enjoyed by the most people) 4-6 minutes.
- Strong coffee (Dark cup of coffee with more bitterness): 6-8 minutes.
In the above picture is shown how much coffee 8 serving spoon is providing to the french press.

|Release the CO2 gasses by stirring|
When you have real eased these gasses, fill up the french press to the bottom of the silver line and let it merge, until your preferred tasting zone.
