Home Brewing - How to brew the perfect cafetiere

We like to brew our cafetiere in a similar way to cupping a coffee. We would suggest you try the method below also in order to experience the coffee in the best way, to get the full flavour of the beans.


  • Cupping Spoons/Tablespoons
  • Cafetiere
  • Roasted Coffee
  • Grinder (or pre-ground coffee)
  • Digital Scales (0.1g accurate if possible)
  • Kettle
  • Filtered Water (Between 92.2 ̊c and 94.4 ̊c)


  • Grab your coffee and weigh out what you need (I work with 60 grams per litre). My cafetiere at home is 500ml so I use 30 grams of coffee
  • Get your kettle on the boil
  • Grind your beans to a coarse grind size (similar to sea salt)
  • Add the ground coffee to the cafetiere
  • Add your water from the kettle (after it’s boiled, leave for 30 seconds to reduce the temperature) and make sure you get all the coffee wet
  • Leave it for 4 minutes to brew
  • Push the coffee crust down with a spoon
  • Clean any of the foam off the top of the cafetiere and plunge it to halfway
  • Pour and enjoy :)
