If you're searching for a stainless steel cafetiere that combines sophistication with eco-friendly features, the Core Coffee Press is your trusty companion.

Why We Love It:

Excellent Velvety Coffee

Using a metal filter, this cafetiere creates an excellent velvety coffee with a rich mouthfeel. You can expect a coffee with a heavy body, typical of what you'd expect from specialty cafetiere coffee.

Sustainable Coffee Maker

The cafetiere is made from high-grade 304 stainless steel and thermal shock-tested borosilicate glass. The design is plastic free and spare parts are available if accidents happen so it will never go to a landfill.

Ergonomic and Easy to Clean

We designed this coffee press with a large glass handle which is comfortable to hold when full of hot coffee. The Barista & Co statement knob on the plunger offers greater stability. It also allows the filter to be removed easily for cleaning.

Protected from Knocks

The stainless steel base protects the glass beaker from breakage. It's easy to remove so that you can wash your beaker in the dishwasher.

Ingredients and Tools:

  • Filter ground coffee
  • Hot water
  • Core Coffee Press
  • Stirring utensil
  • Timer

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Measure Coffee:

    • Use a filter ground coffee for French Press brewing. A general guideline is to use a coffee-to-water ratio of 1:15 or 1:16. For example, for every 1 gram of coffee, use 15-16 grams of water.
  2. Preheat your Core Coffee Press:

    • Pour a small amount of hot water into the French Press to preheat it. Swirl the water around, and then discard it.
  3. Add Coffee:

    • Add the measured coffee grounds to the bottom of the Coffee Press.
  4. Add Hot Water:

    • Heat water to just below boiling (around 93°C). Pour the hot water over the coffee grounds, ensuring even saturation. Use a pouring kettle or milk pitcher for better control.
  5. Stir and Bloom:

    • Stir the coffee-water mixture gently with a wooden or plastic utensil to ensure all grounds are saturated. Allow it to bloom for about 30 seconds.
  6. Attach Lid and Plunge:

    • Attach the lid to the cafetiere without pressing down the plunger. Let the coffee steep for the desired time (typically 4-6 minutes).
  7. Plunge:

    • After steeping, slowly press down the plunger, separating the coffee grounds from the liquid.
  8. Pour and Serve:

    • Pour the brewed coffee into your favourite mug.


  • Experiment with the coffee-to-water ratio to find your preferred strength.
  • Use fresh, high-quality coffee beans for the best flavour.
  • Start with clean equipment to avoid any lingering flavours from previous brews.

By following these steps, you can enjoy a rich and flavourful cup of coffee using any coffee press. Adjustments can be made based on personal taste preferences. Still having troubles? Check out our guide to brewing with a cafetiere.

How to Make Coffee in a Cafetiere?

Getting the perfect coffee takes time and practice. Knowing what grind size to use, how much coffee to put in and how long to brew for can feel like a minefield. Find out how to make perfect cafetiere coffee here.

How Much Coffee Should I put in my Cafetiere?

We recommend between 15g - 18g of freshly ground coffee per person for the ultimate brew. This is the equivalent of one heaped tablespoon, or you can use our scoop measuring spoon for more accurate estimates.

Can I Buy Replacement Cafetiere Beakers?

We all know accidents happen, that's why we've made it easy to get your hands on the Core Coffee Press replacement beaker with the glass handle. This product is available in the 3 cup and 8 cup size.

How Often Should I Replace the Metal Filter?

The metal filter on your cafetiere prevents coffee ground from getting into your cup. We'd recommend changing it every 6 - 12 months depending on usage. If you want an even cleaner brew from your coffee press, try doubling up the metal filter.

Can I Use Filter Ground Coffee in my Cafetiere?

Yes! In fact, many coffee drinkers are switching to a slightly finer grind size in order to extract the full flavour from the bean. Our House Darker Roast is full of rich milk chocolate and caramel flavours and is perfect for your cafetiere. Just remember to reduce the extraction time to 4 minutes.

What Size Cafetiere do I Need?

We offer two coffee press sizes, a 3-cup and an 8-cup. Cup sizes are based on a traditional Italian serving of around 120ml. You'll notice the 3-cup cafetiere will make 1 mug of fresh coffee. The 8-cup cafetiere makers around 3 mugs. If you're looking for a single use coffee maker, we'd recommend the 3-cup. The last thing you want to do is leave your coffee to overextract! An 8-cup cafetiere is perfect for family mornings around the breakfast table.

Why Does my Cafetiere Coffee Taste Bad?

There are a number of reasons your brew might not be to your liking (and it's usually not got anything to do with the coffee you're using). This article explains all the reasons your cafetiere coffee tastes bad.

    Customer Reviews

    Based on 74 reviews

    Beautiful little piece of kit. Perfect for my one cup in the morning!

    Fine press, packaging questionable

    Love the press, exactly what I was looking for--box it came in was absolutely crushed. A shame because I could see myself ordering the larger size, but it does feel a little risky considering I'm surprised the first one arrived unbroken.

    I appreciate the desire for environmentally friendly packaging, but when it comes to glassware a fragile sticker might go a long way in ensuring things make it across the pond in one piece.

    Edit 5/29/24 -
    Amended stars in review as the company reached out very promptly and let me know they were going to do something about packaging. Makes me feel much more secure in future purchases knowing that customer service is very quick and willing to assist.

    Thanks for your review and kind words about our Core Coffee Press Caitlyn, I'm pleased to hear you love the coffee maker. We're investigating the packaging issue now as this certainly isn't the unboxing experience we want people to have - if you happen to have any photos of the box, please could you send them to us at Thank you in advance.
