French Press Coffee FAQ
Can I reuse the Coffee Grounds in My French Press?
When you steep your coffee in a french press, you’ll notice the leftover grounds at the bottom. You might ask yourself, “can I reuse these coffee grounds in the french press?”
You can certainly reuse your grounds if you’re feeling a second cup of coffee, but we recommend that you stick to using the grounds only once. If you’re wanting a second cup, it might be worth it to just use new coffee grounds.
How long do you let a French Press brew?
How do you know how long to let a french press brew? 4 (four) minutes is a good starting point steep time for french press, but you can alter time and measurements for different strengths.
Depending on what kind of coffee you are using, 4 (four) minutes might not work as the best french press brew time for you.
If your coffee comes out too weak and watery, try either adding more grounds, or adding 30 seconds-a minute of steep time. If your coffee comes out too bitter, you may want to coarsen the grind or subtract about 30 seconds from your brew time.
Have fun experimenting with your favorite coffees and enjoy the process of discovering how long to let your french press coffee brew.
