HOW TO MAKE THE BEST BEACH BAY BREW with a French Press / Coffee Plunger:

  1. Boil water, as soon as the kettle shuts off – leave top open for 45 seconds
  2. Pre heat your plunger with the freshly boiled water and throw water out of plunger
  3. Pour your ground coffee into the plunger
  4. 45 seconds after boil, fill up 500ml of water – making sure all the grounds are wet
  5. Don’t stir the coffee yet and leave for 2 minutes (important to use your timer here) with the lid off (Take in the smell of that deliciousness as the coffee blooms)
  6. At 2 minutes, give the coffee a few gentle stirs, put the lid on and wait until 2:30 to start plunging. Plunger down for the next 20 seconds.
  7. Let coffee stand for a minute before drinking

*If you prefer a stronger brew, go for a 15:1 ratio (30grams = 450ml water)
