A Guide to Home Brewing

Head of Coffee Josh Tarlo says: ‘The French Press is the coffee brewer many of us grew up with and it’s a perfect entry into home brewing. With a little precision in your preparation, you can get a coffee that leaps better and tastes sweeter and more vibrant than you’ve ever had before.’
