How To Use a Cafetiere

How to Use a Cafetiere

Chris Foulkes |

Cafetiere brewing has long been the go-to method for coffee lovers looking for their fix at home; it’s not an expensive brewing method, it requires little preparation and expertise, and it’s one of the best ways to taste the origin bean flavours and character!

Even though getting the most of your Cafetiere brew can take a bit of practice, it’ll be a labour of love and you’ll be enjoying fresh, great tasting coffee in no time. So throw away the freeze dried stuff you have in your cupboard, you won’t be needing that anymore. 

The Cafetiere

Whether you’re looking for something to use every day or something a little fancier for special occasions, we have a full range of cafetieres from only £9.

Always buy a branded cafetiere to ensure better quality filtering and eventually a cleaner cup of coffee, not only this but branded cafetieres will usually last longer because of their greater quality parts, so you’ll be less likely to have to replace them. Our selection of cafetieres includes top brands such as Alessi, Bodum and Le Creuset!

Choosing Your Coffee

Because of the ease of brewing using a cafetiere you can use any coffee, whichever origin, flavour or blend that you enjoy!

We have a suggested selection that we feel work incredibly well in producing the greatest flavours and most enjoyable cups. We’ve selected some of our sweet, fruity and chocolatey coffees such as our Brazil Yellow Catuai, Kenya Peaberry and firm favourite Nicaragua Matagalpa!
