A timeless favourite
A cafetiere or french press brew is richly textured due to the little fine coffee particles that slip through the mesh filter. It has a timeless simplicity and is Britain’s favourite brew method. It only takes 4 minutes to brew during which time you can start your paper, stroke the cat or knock off the dishes.
Put the cafetiere on the tared scales, add the correct dose, tare again & pour the ‘just off the boil’ water onto the coffee vigourously.
Position the plunger lid on top of the cafetiere without plunging to keep the heat in.
Return the plunger onto the cafetiere and press down.
TIP: If it’s hard to press, your grind is too fine.
