• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: It's Meant to Be Strong

    Coffee in a French press is a preferred method for making dark, strong coffee. French roast is a dark roast that is popular in espresso drinks. If you are feeling a bit sluggish, use 2 tbsp. per cup of water to enjoy coffee with a real kick.

    On the Other: Some Like it Weak

    There is no rule that says coffee made in a French press has to be made overly strong. French presses can deliver a robust and aromatic cup of brew and be on the light side. To tone it down, use 1/2 tbsp of grounds per cup of water.

    Bottom Line

    How much coffee you use in a French press is a matter of taste. Although it is a preferred method for making very strong coffee, there is no rule that states you can't make it weaker. Most suggestions for a robust brew are around a level tablespoon of grounds per cup of water. Weak or strong, it is highly recommended that freshly ground coffee be used since part of the appeal of a French press is strong aroma, and this is greatly increased when beans are freshly ground.
