The French Press has been around a long time for a reason, it is an excellent way to brew coffee. Water temperature 92C, poured slowly over your grinds. Wait about 3 minutes for the brew to develop and the crema to form. My favorite way to enjoy a coffee is the french press. Each of us has our own particular way to tweak the prep to make it our own. Here in Sumatra, a bold coffee goes well with a local delicacy, Lapis Legit or layer cake. This is Leo’s fave.
