Fact: Did you know that the coffee bean that we are so familiar with, is not a bean in the technical sense of the term? So, why are they called beans, you may ask? Well, simply because they look like beans! The truth is that these are seeds of the fruit of the coffee plant that belongs to the family Rubiaceae.
Place the coffee grounds in the empty French press. In order to ensure that the coffee releases its full flavor, add a small amount of cold water to the grounds and stir. Let the coffee sit in the cold water while you heat enough water to fill the French press. Do not heat the water directly in the French press. Its best to heat water in a pot on the stove or in an electric kettle. The water should be not quite boiling. The easiest way to ensure that the water is not too hot or too cold is to allow the water to boil, then take it off the heat for a minute or two just until it stops boiling. Then, pour it over the coffee grounds and place the lid on the press.
The Arabs were very possessive about the growing popularity of this beverage and its spread around the world. The beans were dispatched from Yemen and were kept as a highly guarded secret. It was later thought, that it was either the Dutch or a group of Pilgrims who finally tried to smuggle the plants to India. After a few attempts, it finally grew it's roots in this country. The cultivation then expanded to the islands of Java and Sumatra.
The French press has a loyal following. It produces a very rich, full bodied cup of coffee with a small amount of coffee particulate that many find desirable. To brew, take coarsely (standard perk) ground coffee and add it to the bottom of the container. Add hot water (about 190 degrees), put the cover in place and push the plunger down about 1/4 of the way and let steep for about 3-5 minutes, depending on taste. Push the plunger down to trap the grounds and stop the brewing and serve immediately.
