Plunger (French Press) Coffee


Since I generally only drink coffee when in Australia, I need instructions for those few times when I make it in the States.

To make single cups of plunger coffee:

Bring fresh water to a boil, then wait a minute or two.  Swish a bit of the hot water in the plunger to warm it, then pour it out.

Put 2 tablespoons of freshly-ground, coarsely-ground coffee into the plunger.  Pour 8 ounces of the hot water evenly over the grounds; stir to make sure the water gets to all the ground coffee.  Steep for about 4 minutes; then press down on the plunger evenly and slowly.  Pour and enjoy!
