Weighing your coffee and finding a time, invariably between 4-6 minutes, that fixates your pallet is your goal.
There is a difference in the body and flavour of the coffee between these time intervals and the endeavour of finding a target is worthwhile. Don’t be bad and lazy!
Grinding your coffee immediately before use is best.
Water quality makes a difference. Tap water is treated for health outcomes not taste. Use the best water quality within your reach for the best tasting coffee.
Heat your plunger with hot water before use.
Pour freshly boiled water onto your bed of coffee and fill the plunger to your set point.
Stir the grinds and water after pouring the water to entice infusion.
Let the coffee brew for 4-6 minutes.
Insert the plunger, push down and pour.
