Weighing coffee in a bowl on a scale

Your coffee should be as coarse as a normal drip coffee grind. I like to use an 8:1 water to coffee ratio then add water to the concentrate. Anything between 7:1 and 16:1 will turnout great.

Making french press coffee

A wooden spoon is ideal. When covering, push the plunger down just beyond the level of the grounds.
