The Exceptional Cup

There are many ways to prepare a cup of filter coffee at home, but you can’t go wrong with a cafetière for a consistently delicious brew.

Freshly ground beans will provide the richest flavour profile, but we’ll forgive you for using ready-ground if you don’t have a coffee grinder, or you’re running late for the train.

We recommend you start off with 40g of coffee in a pre-warmed 6-8 cup cafetière. Boil some fresh water, let it cool for a few seconds, then slowly pour to cover.

Wait half a minute or so before topping up with a little more water. Brew for a total of around five minutes, then press gently and pour.

Experiment with the quantity of coffee until you find a strength that suits your taste. We love our coffee black, without milk – this way you can really experience the unique flavour profile we keep going on about.
