Learn how to brew the perfect cafetière with fresh ground filter coffee from Artisan Coffee Co. A staple in most homes, the cafetière is reliable and easy to use, and the perfect choice when brewing for a group or to enjoy on your own. Follow our simple visual guide to learn how to use a cafetière and make the best French Press filter coffee you have ever tasted.
Before getting started, gather all your equipment into one place.
Boil 500g/ml of filtered water.
Place the cafetière onto the scale. Empty your sachet of ground coffee into the cafetière then zero the scales.
Add 500g/ml of filtered water, just off the boil. Make sure to saturate all the grounds. Set the timer to 4 minutes and press start.
Place the lid of the plunger onto the pot, but do not plunge. The lid is just to keep the heat in.
When the timer goes off, remove the lid and give your coffee a good stir for 5 seconds. Allow the water to settle, and then use a spoon to remove the foam & any coffee grounds floating on the surface to achieve a cleaner cup of coffee.
Place the lid of the plunger back onto the pot - once again resisting the urge to plunge - and allow the coffee to brew for a further minute. Then gently push down on the plunger and stop just before it touches the coffee grounds.
Serve immediately for the ultimate ground coffee experience.
