Bonito Coffee Bag That Triathlon Life Label

Each month we will update our brew guide to specifically match the beans that you receive through The Coffee Project. Notes for March are below.


What you will need:

8 Cup French Press
Water ≈ 198-203°f or 93°c (bring water to a boil, then remove from the heat for about 1 minute) (Do not use boiling water)
Coarse Ground Coffee ≈ 50g (≈7 tablespoons)
Gram Scale (optional, but recommended)


  • The standard ratio for coffee to water is 1:16. For every 1 gram of coffee add 16 grams of water. For an 8 cup french press, 50g coffee, 800g water
  • With your ground coffee in the press, start a timer for 4 minutes, and then add about 1/2 the total water recommended and let the coffee “bloom”. Some people like to gently stir at this point.
  • After about 30 seconds of the coffee blooming, add the rest of the water. If you have a scale, go for 800g, if you don’t just fill your press around 90% of the way. 
  • Once the water is added, place the plunger on top (do NOT press down!) to help retain some heat.
  • Once the time is up (4 minutes total from when water first touched the ground coffee), slowly plunge the filter down, immediately serve the coffee and enjoy!
