Coffee for the Cafetiere
Discover a world of flavour with our range of coffee specially selected for use in a cafetiere (or, as some call it, the french press). All of the coffee is freshly roasted after you place your order and can be sent to you in whole bean form or ground to your preference. Click on any of the products below to see more information and to choose your options. If you don't have your own grinder, select Cafetiere/French Press in the Grind option and we'll do it for you.
Why the cafetiere as a brewing method?
The cafetiere is a wonderful and cost effective coffee brewing method as it requires inexpensive equipment and doesn't require you to buy special filters. As long as you keep it clean (and if you have a glass one don't break it!) then it will potentially last a lifetime.
There are many different types of cafetiere to choose from. The traditional one consists of a Pyrex jug in a metal holder and a metal plunger, much like the one in our image above, but there are now also stainless steel versions that are insulated to keep your coffee hot for longer.
How do I use it for the perfect cup of coffee?
The cafetiere coffee brewing method is quite simple:
- Boil the kettle
- Grind your coffee coarsely (or buy coffee ground specifically for the cafetiere - it has to be a fairly coarse grind).
- Put the ground coffee into the cafetiere.
- Pour over your hot boiled water and stir the coffee.
- Place the lid with plunger on and wait for 3 - 4 minutes.
- Push the plunger down and pour.
Be sure to take a look at our cafetiere brew guide if you want to learn how to achieve great results.
