Brewing French Press Coffee

Coffee / Water Ratio
Ratio of coffee to water is key, the following guideline will yield a full flavor cup of coffee.
  • 1/4 cup of ground coffee to 17 oz water/small French Press
  • 1/3 cup of ground coffee to 36 oz water/medium French Press
  • 1/2 cup of ground coffee to 44 oz water/large French Press

  • In a stainless steel or glass kettle bring water to a boil
  • Pour an ounce of water into Press to rinse and preheat
  • Add ground coffee to Press
  • Gently pour boiled water to fill Press halfway
  • Finish filling Press to base of spout
  • Cover and brew for 5 minutes
  • Swirl again and gently press plunger all the way down
  • For best flavor serve freshly brewed Papua immediately

Note: Even after the coffee has been pressed it will continue to brew. If you prefer a stronger brew, allow the coffee to steep.

For a milder brew drink immediately, or transfer to a glass-lined thermos. An airpot works well to keep your Papua hot and fresh tasting at the office, events & parties!

Brewing Mediterranean Coffee

  • I recommend a clay, copper or stainless steel coffee maker*
  • Measure 1 demi-cup (approx. 2.5 oz) of natural spring water per person
  • 1 rounded teaspoon of Armenian coffee per cup
  • Add teaspoon of sugar per cup (optional)
  • Place coffee maker over medium flame and stir water, coffee & sugar to blend
  • Let coffee sit still over the flame till it bubbles and foams
  • Remove from flame and pour out coffee foam into each cup
  • Then finish filling the cup with the coffee liquid
  • Drizzle with organic heavy whipping cream (optional)
  • Enjoy this traditional recipe with dessert or as dessert
  • Take care not to drink the sediment at the bottom of the cup!

The cordless electric Mediterranean coffee maker we offer online is stainless steel, practical for home and travel, easy & fast! The instructions above, however, are for the stovetop variety of Mediterranean Coffee Maker.
