In these simple steps, you can make the tastiest cafetière coffee:
1. GRIND THE COFFEE BEANS
For the very best result, grind the fresh coffee beans just before use. Use a coarse and even grind. Do you not have a coffee grinder? We grind the coffee for you at the right grind just before dispatch.
2. PLACING THE GROUND COFFEE IN THE CAFETIÈRE
Place the ground coffee in the clean pre-rinsed glass container of the cafEtière. Use 7 grams of ground coffee for every 100 millilitres of water. This is equivalent to one tablespoon.
3. ADD HOT WATER
In the Netherlands, tap water is of excellent quality, but real baristas prefer filtered water (or Spa Blue) for the tastiest result. Let the boiled water cool down. Water that is added directly from the boil can burn the coffee. Next, pour the water evenly into the glass pot so that all the coffee particles are submerged. Fill the cafetière to the top and then place the lid on.
4. SET THE TIMER
Let the coffee brew for 3 to 4 minutes with the lid on the cafetière. After about one minute, coffee will come out from the rim of the cafetière. Stir this carefully with a spoon to give the coffee the proper extraction.
5. PUSH DOWN THE FILTER
After 3 to 4 minutes, press the steel filter down slowly and evenly.
6. SERVE IT!
The coffee is now ready to be served, preferably in preheated cups. Make sure you hold the lid firmly in place when pouring. Enjoy!
