Are you a beginner to plunger coffee and looking to learn more? Look no further! At Kuhl-Cher Coffee, we've got you covered with tips and tricks from our coffee experts.

First things first, what is plunger coffee? Plunger coffee, also known as French press coffee, is a brewing method that involves steeping coffee grounds in hot water and then pressing the plunger down to separate the brewed coffee from the grounds. It's a simple and affordable way to make delicious coffee at home.

To make plunger coffee, start by boiling water and letting it cool for a few minutes. While the water is cooling, grind your coffee beans to a coarse consistency. For plunger coffee, it's best to use freshly roasted coffee beans that are coarse and ground just before brewing. You can find coffee beans for sale at our shop or by searching for "coffee beans near me."

Next, add the coffee grounds to the plunger and pour the hot water over them. Let the coffee steep for 4-5 minutes, then slowly press down the plunger to separate the brewed coffee from the grounds. Pour the coffee into your mug and enjoy!

If you're worried about the caffeine content in plunger coffee, it's important to note that plunger coffee typically has less caffeine than espresso. A shot of espresso has around 63mg of caffeine, while a cup of plunger coffee has around 95mg of caffeine.
