Preheat your french press with hot water
Place freshly ground coffee in press
Start the timer & begin pouring hot water into the press
Completely saturate the grounds with all the water. Stir.
Place the lid with the plunger up on the press
When the timer is at 2 minutes, remove the lid & stir the coffee again
