How to brew coffee with the American Press

 

 

the american press is one of our go-to tools for brewing coffee and tea. despite its simplicity, it brews a surprisingly complex cup, which is only one reason why we love it. with the ability to brew coffee in under two minutes, its durable nature, and its easy clean up, it makes a great addition to the fast-paced environment of our coffee shop. at the same time, it is a great method for brewing at home and looks damn fine on a coffee cart or a kitchen shelf. as an added bonus it’s super travel-friendly!


step 1: 
weigh and grind

weight 22 grams of your favorite evermore coffee and grind for auto drip. pull the plunger, lid, and pod out of the american press carafe and carefully place the ground coffee into the pod. replace the plunger lid and turn clockwise to lock in place.

step 2: 
pre-infuse and press

using a stovetop or electric kettle, bring 12-14 ounces of water to 180° fahrenheit. fill the american press carafe with the hot water to just above the fill line. place the closed plunger lid back into the opening of the carafe and press firmly until it is sealed in place.


to pre-infuse, firmly press down on the plunger until the pod fills with water. if you begin to see a bit of coffee emerging from the pod, this is fine, although it is an indicator to stop pressing down. sit back and relax for 1 minute and 20 seconds as the coffee continues to brew.

step 3:
pour and enjoy!

once ready, simply pour the coffee from the spout of the carafe into your favorite mug and enjoy!

 

*fair warning, we do experiment with using different pre-infusion times and water temperatures, depending on which coffee we’re working with. however, this is our standard method for brewing at the shop and results in a great cup.
