What better way to get get your day off with an aromatic cup of your favourite hot beverage. People love bringing a Parisian cafe culture into their lives and with a selection of classic cafetieres, you can do just that. When brewing coffee at home or at work, you simply can’t go wrong with a French press or cafetiere and there are traditional French designs or more contemporary designs to suit your style. The beaker of a cafetiere is mostly made from either glass, stainless steel or plastic, and each of these materials have their own advantages and disadvantages.
For longevity, most people opt for the stainless steel, as this is certainly the most durable and least fragile. The capacity of a cafetiere is measured in small demitasse cups. A 3-cup cafetiere will make 360ml/12fl oz of coffee while a 12 cup cafetiere will make 1500ml/53oz.

You can buy ready ground coffee at most supermarkets, bearing in mind that Cafetieres require a coarser grind of coffee because of the larger size of the mesh in the filter. To use your cafetiere to its best advantage, always rinse the cafetiere out with some boiling water. Then its time to spoon in your freshly ground coffee and add hot water. Replace the plunger in the raised position onto the cafetiere and leave to brew for about 4 or 5 minutes. Slowly press the plunger down, allowing it to engage with the pod. Turn the lid to the open position and you’re ready to pour your coffee.
