coffee heresy 

Currently drinking decaf coffee brewed in a french press with cocoa powder. Now the and the can both hate me.

@bremner No hate here. I only French press occasionally, when I find myself with one and without an espresso machine, and was getting inconsistent results until a couple weeks ago I tried James Hoffmann's recipe (youtube.com/watch?v=st571DYYTR – 30g medium-ground to 500ml boiling water, pour and wait four min., stir and let grounds settle, skim off foam+fines, wait five more min., press). Very strong, very smooth. Now I'm wondering what the right recipe for French press decaf+cocoa is.

@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.
