Here are the variables you can control and tweak, to hand-brew your perfect cup of coffee:


Water is the most abundant ingredient in your coffee. Opt for a pure-tasting filtered water so that your cup tastes as clean as possible. And of course, use coffee that you like! See the Choosing Coffee section on what to consider.


Choose the right grind size for your coffee-brewing method

The recommended grind size varies from coffeemaker to coffeemaker because of differing filter types, brewing techniques, etc. For Palmpress use a medium grind size, which falls between fine espresso grounds and coarse French press grounds.

For fresher coffee, grind your own

For the freshest taste, grind only the amount of coffee you need just before brewing. Opt for a burr grinder which produces more accurate and consistent results than blade grinders. Uniform coffee particles = even extraction of coffee = better tasting coffee.


Store your coffee at room temperature in an airtight container, away from light, heat, and moisture.


Coffee is a dry ingredient, and dry ingredients are best measured by weight as they vary in shape and size. Although it’s totally fine to measure your coffee with a spoon or scoop if that’s your preference, consider measuring your coffee using a food scale for a more consistent taste cup to cup.


A coffee’s strength and caffeine content is best measured as the ratio of coffee to water. The higher the coffee-to-water ratio, the more concentrated and stronger your cup will be. Experiment with ratios that suit your taste!


We aim for a balanced cup of coffee, and below are tips to help achieve just that. We want to avoid an under-extracted or over-extracted cup, which can yield unpleasant flavors.

Use water at the correct temperature

For hot coffee, use approximately 200°F (93°C) water, which is about a minute off boil. For other types of coffee, refer to the water temperature that the recipe calls for.

Ensure even saturation

Gently stir the coffee and water mixture to ensure it’s evenly saturated.

Brew for a sufficient amount of time

For Palmpress we recommend that you start with a three-minute brew time, and tweak to your taste from there. Just like cooking anything else, you control how long it’s cooked for until it’s just right. Good to know: The larger the grind size the more brewing time may be desired, and vice versa.

A Splendid Cuppa

I am most pleased with my PalmPress. It is a robust little contraption, very easy to use and to clean. It makes a very tasty cup of coffee with very little fuss or mess. It's a pleasure to tote it and know I can make a convenient coffee wherever I go.

Thank you, ELK!
Excellent cup of coffee, but...

The palm press makes a great cup of coffee. I don't need to measure how much, I just pour in grinds up to the line and add water up to the line. My only critique is that it only makes a 12oz cup. Maybe there is a larger size that I was unaware of, but I'm always left wanting, just a little more coffee. And since most of our coffee cups are huge, it only fills them about 2/3 of the way.

However, it's easy enough just to dump the grinds and start over again.

Overall, a really nice product!

Thank you, Jonathan!
