HOW TO PREPARE THE PERFECT COFFEE WITH A FRENCH PRESS
1) Place the French press coffee maker on a level surface. Remove the plunger with the filter from the bowl and set it aside.
2) Add a spoon of ground coffee to the container. Keep in mind that for each tablespoon of coffee, we will need 150 or 200 ml of water, approximately.
3) Heat the necessary amount of water depending on the amount of coffee you have added. Once hot, wait for the water to settle for a minute.
4) Add the water over the ground coffee and stir gently.
5) Put the plunger back with the filter just above the water and the ground coffee.
6) Let the coffee and water mixture stand for about 4 minutes.
7) Gently press the plunger down to the bottom of the coffee maker, and everything will be set to serve and taste the coffee!

How Coffee Makes Us More Productive
Caffeine is the most used psychoactive substances available in nature. People often experience a more energised mental state after drinking coffee and even tea and it’s a well-known fact that caffeine has a direct impact on our overall productivity. But how does caffeine work exactly?
When caffeine enters your body, it is metabolised by the liver and broken down into three simpler substances, theophylline, paraxanthine and theobromine. It is these caffeine metabolites that make us more productive.
