    Hello,

    Making coffee in a french press is not hard at all. I recently wrote about this. Check out my guide on how to make coffee in a french press.

    I don't have an espresso machine and prefer french press over drip or pour over. This is my process at this point:

    While heating water on the stove I weigh out my beans on a food scale. Current ratio is 23 g of water per 300 g of water.
    I wait to grind the beans until just before the water boils. Freshly ground beans do make a difference.
    I then pour about 100 g of water into the carafe with the grounds, swirl it, set the timer for 4 minutes and let it steep for about 30 seconds.
    I then pour the rest of the water for a total of 300 g of water, swirl it to mix and then let it sit until the 4 minute timer goes off.
    When the timer goes off I take a spoon and carefully remove the crust of grounds that have not sunk and throw them away. I make sure I remove the foam as that is not the same kind of foam as crema on espresso.
    I then set the timer for another 5 minutes and let it sit. I don't stir or swirl it again. I put the plunger back on to keep the heat in and make sure the plunger screen is sitting just above the top of the coffee in the carafe.
    After the 5 minutes is up I just carefully pour some into a mug, add some frothed milk and I have an amazing cafe au lait.

    I hope this helps. Good luck.
