Around 1710, in France, the process of injecting coffee was invented for the first time. They put the ground coffee in a cloth bag and by adding hot water to it, they prepared the ground for better brewing of coffee and reaching a more delicious drink. However, in the 19th century and even part of the 20th century, previous methods were still used by many people.
Learning the invented method and many other innovations in this field, largely owes to the help of Jean Baptista W. (Jean Baptiste de Belloy) the Archbishop of Paris in the 18th century, who believed coffee should be brewed in the best way.
In later years, inventors’ efforts to improve the quality and ease of use of this method increased, and a French inventor invented a coffee maker using water pumping. An American inventor living in Paris, invented the first example of the French Drip, and another French inventor used a metal filter.
How to make French coffee
The best water temperature for brewing coffee is 80-95 degrees Celsius. Preheat your French press with hot water, 20 grams of coffee per person and 250 cc of hot boiled water are required.
First, pour the coffee into the French press and pour half of the boiling water in a circular motion over the ground coffee and wait for 15 seconds. This releases gases trapped in the coffee powder. After this time, pour the other half of the boiling water over the coffee in the same way. Then close it without pressing, after 5 minutes, gently press the filter and serve the extract in a cup.
