BREWED METHODS

French Press:

*You need an 8 CUP FRENCH PRESS BREWER and GRINDER

  1. Warm up your empty French Press by rinsing it with very hot water. It helps maintain the temperature while brewing for the best extraction.
  2. Measure out 48g (about 8 Tablespoons) of guayusa cacao and grind it as coarse as breadcrumbs.
  3. Now that your French Press is warmed up, discard the hot water, add guayusa cacao into the empty press, and fill up with hot water.
  4. At 4:00, you are ready to press. Firmly push the press all the way down.
  5. Serve it up. Pour guayusa cacao into a carafe immediately to avoid over-extraction. If the guayusa cacao sits on the grounds too long, it continues to extract and will become bitter.
  6. To clean the French Press, we find it easiest to add a little water to the grounds, give it a good swirl, and empty it into the trash or compost bin.

 

ICE: Bring infusion to room temperature, add ice or refrigerate until the desired temperature.
