French Press/Cafetiere (1 cup) - Total brew time 4-5 mins

Probably the most widely used home brew method which uses a plunge filter system to brew and separate the grounds. Catering for individuals and groups alike this method is ideal for those seeking a fuller body cup of coffee.



French press/Cafetiere (1 cup)
1 cup (12g of beans)


step 1

Boil water using kettle. Whilst waiting, weigh and grind your coffee to a consistency similar to breadcrumbs. We recommend using 12g of coffee beans.

Note: As a base we advise a brew ratio of 12g coffee to 200g water.

step 2

Once the kettle is boiled, add water to the cafetiere to preheat for a more consistent brew.

step 3

Empty the preheated water from the cafetiere and add your ground beans and place the cafetiere on the scales.

step 4

Start timer and add 200g of hot water over the grounds to allow for the coffee to bloom (degassing process). Use a spoon to gently break up and mix the coffee with water.

Note: Ensure coffee grounds are fully immersed in water. 

step 5

At 0.30 add the top of the cafetiere and plunge the filter just enough to submerge the floating coffee grounds under water level.

step 6

At 4.00 gently push down the plunger to seperate the coffee grounds at the bottom of the cafetiere. Hey presto you’re ready to pour and enjoy a cup of coffee.

Note: To avoid over brewing which causes bitterness we recommend pouring the coffee fairly soon after its brewed.
