Travel French Press Coffee Brewing Guide

How to Use a Travel P1 ESPRO French Press

Overview

Looking to make delicious French Press Coffee in your new ESPRO Travel P1 coffee press? The steps below will help you get started with a quick guide to get you brewing as soon as your press reaches your door.  

What You Need

  • - ESPRO Travel P1 French Press
  • - Boiling Water
  • - Coarse Ground Coffee
  • - Paper Filters (Optional)

Step 1

Measure out your grounds according to the chart below (coffee is subjective so no judgement on how you choose to brew - experiment to find what you like best).

Pro Tip: Can’t find your tablespoon – simply fill up your bottom filter all of the way with grounds and dump them in your French press for a quick medium brew (remember to rinse off and lock your filters back together before using).

Step 2

Pour measured coffee into the bottom of the vessel and then put the two filters back together by twisting to lock. 

Pro Tip: Add an ESPRO paper filter between your dual micro-mesh filters for an even cleaner brew. 

Step 3

Boil water. Fill the press with water until the water meets the maximum fill line located on the inside wall of your ESPRO Travel French Press and give a quick stir to ensure all the grinds are wet. 

Pro Tip: Boiling water is 212°F, but the ideal temperature to make French Press Coffee is 195-205 °F so let your boiled water sit a few moments to bring it down a few degrees.  

Step 4

Place the lower lid, that has the dual micro-mesh filters attached, onto the press gently twisting the lower lid on; allow the coffee to steep for up to 4 minutes. 

Step 5

Press slowly, counting to 15, until the plunger reaches the bottom of the French Press.     

Pro Tip: Our filters have a seal to prevent grounds from reaching your coffee after the coffee is pressed, so there will be more resistance when plunging the coffee. 

Step 6

Put the cap on your travel press and remove the top cap any time you need a sip of delicious coffee, knowing your grounds are staying far away from your perfect brew. 

Pro Tip: Paper filters can be composted with the coffee grounds!
