How to Make the Perfect Cup of Black Coffee

In our opinion, brewing with the French Press is the ideal way to go. ⁠And by using the Drink Perfector with the French Press, you get the perfect, safe temperature in no time, every time. ⁠


1. Use Spring water or distilled water. Filtered water is also ideal.

2. Grind your coffee beans until they have the consistency of course salt.

3. Add a heaping tablespoon of coffee to your French Press per 8 oz of water.⁠ About one tablespoon per cup of coffee.⁠

4. Heat your water with an electric kettle.⁠ ⁠

5. Pour in just enough water to saturate the grounds. Give the French Press a quick swirl, and then wait 30 seconds. This will maximize the bloom of the coffee notes that the roasters have worked so hard in creating.⁠ ⁠

6. Then pour the remaining water into the pot, and gently stir.⁠ ⁠

7. Carefully reinsert the plunger into the pot, stopping just above the water and ground coffee (do not plunge yet), and let stand for 4 minutes ⁠.⁠ ⁠

8. Press the plunger down slowly, exerting steady pressure.⁠ ⁠

9. Then pour through the Drink Perfector to bring to the flavorful and safe drinking temperature of 140°. See the video below for more details on using the Drink Perfector.

10. Enjoy!
