Take Agent Dale Cooper's ardent passion for a good cup of black coffee and his uncontained enthusiasm for cherry pie, for instance—now  that's something we can understand. So we obviously were thrilled that actor and real-life coffee connoisseur Kyle MacLachlan offered to show us exactly how a cup of "damn good coffee" is done.

Here's how Agent Cooper makes the perfect cup of joe:

① Add 85 grams of coarsely ground dark-roast coffee to a 6-cup French press.

② Boil water, then let sit for 30 seconds until just off-boil.

③ Pour the water into the French press.

④ Steep the coffee for 4 minutes, then press the plunger down into the press.

Enjoy your coffee hot and black.
