Midnight Snack Video: Making Coffee with James Hoffmann – French Press Technique

From James Hoffmann of Square Mile Coffee Roasters in London: The French Press is by far the best coffee brewer you can buy when it comes to the ratio of price and coffee quality. The press works well with just about any style of coffee. The one problem is the sludge, but thanks to a technique shared online from the wise Scandinavians, you can now make a better press at home!

  1. The little comments in the video go by at 180 miles an hour, I managed to catch one out of what I think was 4 or 5. Try viewing your video, you will clearly see the issue. The black pages with white text telling the viewer information – zoom, gone.

    • I rewound it and restarted it quite a few times in order to read it. One thing that was not clear was that after he did the 1st pour to 180 grams, how long did he let it set there until he poured the rest of the water in ? And did he do any stirring ?

      Great video and thanks
