My cafetiere coffee brewing process
This is an abridged version of the Clifton Coffee Company’s brewing guide. The method is the same, I’ve just put it into a form I find easier to refer to.
- 60g of ground coffee per 1L of water.
- 2 cups is about 600ml
Grind, weigh and add the coffee grounds to the cafetiere while the kettle boils.
00:00 Kettle boils; let it sit to allow the water to cool slightly.
01:30 Pour the water from the kettle into the cafetiere. Allow coffee to bloom.
02:30 Use a dessert spoon to push the coffee down into the water; a single stir. At this point I usually use leftover water in the kettle to warm the cups.
05:30 Add the lid to the cafetiere, plunge the plunger, serve.
I wrote my own timer app to help with this. The main differentiator is that it counts up rather than down. If you’d pay 69p for such a thing, drop me an email.
