How to Brew Guide

Making a cup of coffee can be a pleasure, a ritual to enjoy, a space in a day for yourself, or to share with friends or colleagues. A ritual that is improved with beautiful brewing equipment, delicious coffee beans and a little knowledge. Below are three short films which  show you how to get the best from each brewing method.

How to Brew Cafetière Coffee

– Rinse your cafetière with water from a just-boiled kettle to warm the glass.

– Put 30g ground coffee into the cafetière and pour over 500ml freshly-boiled filtered water. Stir gently to break up the crust and mix coffee and water.

– Leave the cafetière for four minutes to steep.

– Put on the lid and slowly depress the plunger.

– If you wish to increase coffee strength, increase the amount of coffee in increments of 2g. 32g will give you a discernibly stronger cup. Once you have nailed it, make note of it.

– Grind: Medium coarse
