minutes. Then, press down the stainless steel filter to the bottom of the French

steeping or gravity to brew. This machine requires more skill than French Press

aromas. It is capable of producing great Cappuccino and Latte.

flavors and leave the impurities behind.
5 Brewing Basics
1. Coffee Freshness
Great lasting coffee must start with freshly roasted beans. To maintain
freshness, it is necessary to store the coffee beans in an airtight container
away from heat, sunlight and to minimize the exposure of the bean surface to
oxygen. Coffee has to be used within 7 (seven) days from opening your pre-packed
bag or can.
Just before brewing, grind the beans. The grind needs to be not too coarse and
not too fine, so just the right amount of soluble materials is extracted into
the finished cup. This means "the right grind for the right brewing method". Use
a finer grind than required will lead to over extraction, using a coarser grind
will lead to under extraction in the coffee, which affects the taste and your
3. Water makes up 98% of every cup of coffee
The taste of the coffee, therefore, is directly related to the taste of water
used to brew it. For brewing, use filtered fresh water free from any "off
tastes" and odors. Mineral water is a good substitute when filtered water is not
available. Temperature is essential for your proper coffee extraction. The ideal
temperature for all brewing methods other than espresso is 212ºF/100ºC, which is
the same as "just off the boil".
4. Proper proportion
The proper proportion is 1 heaping tablespoon (10 grams) of
fresh, properly ground coffee for every 6 ounces (180 ml) of fresh hot water.
Too little or too much ground coffee will lead to over-extraction (over brewing)
or under-extraction (too short period brewing) of your cup of coffee.
5. Holding Time
Once brewed, the coffee should be held for a maximum of 20 minutes. Transferring
the coffee immediately into a professionally insulated dr.CAFE COFFEE thermos extends the coffee's useful life to 45-60
minutes. French Press brewed coffee should be enjoyed within 20 minutes after
brewing to fully enjoy the taste of the natural ingredients it contains.
