@11011110 I don't know about the "right recipe", but I currently use about 1/3 cup beans medium ground to 1 heaping teaspoon of cocoa powder. For water I'm not sure how big this French press is, at least 500 ml. I typically let it settle for at least 10 minutes, but that is more being easily distracted than any great design.
@11011110 5 minutes is plenty to settle. I'm sure it's not to everyone's taste, but some suspension of cocoa is actually my goal here. Also, adding a smallish teaspoon of vanilla extract does not overwhelm the other flavours and (I think) brings out the cocoa a bit.
