Frequently Asked Questions about our Coffee Makers | Strength 1

To achieve a milder cup of coffee with the Brew It Stick, adjust the coffee-to-water ratio, use a coarser grind, choose a different roast, and consider dilution with hot water or milk. For lower caffeine, opt for decaf coffee, utilising the carbon dioxide decaffeination method for the best flavour.
If sensitive to caffeine, choose a coffee maker from our lowest strength collection like the Brew It Stick. Customise caffeine intake by varying coffee bean types and drinking times.

If you're already using the Brew It Stick and you still want a milder cup of coffee, there are some easy steps you can take to achieve that. To make your coffee weaker, start by adjusting the coffee-to-water ratio. Increase the amount of water relative to the coffee grounds when brewing. Use a coarser grind, as finer grinds release more flavour compounds, intensifying the brew.
Opt for a lighter roast, as it generally has a milder flavour than darker roasts (although a higher caffeine concentration). Consider diluting your brewed coffee with hot water or milk to further reduce its strength. Additionally, if using a drip brewer, reduce the brewing time to extract fewer soluble from the coffee grounds. Experiment with these variables until you achieve the desired level of strength, tailoring your coffee experience to suit your taste preferences for a milder and gentler cup.

For a coffee with less caffeine, go for decaf. It's made by taking out most of the caffeine, making it a good choice if you want less kick. They use different methods to do this, like using chemicals or water. Our decaf coffee utilised the carbon dioxide decaffeination method for a great tasting brew with 97% of the caffeine removed. Decaf isn't completely caffeine-free, but it has way less than regular coffee. Typically, 93-99% of the caffeine will be removed. You can also look for beans that naturally have less caffeine, like certain types of Arabica. Lighter roasts usually have a bit more caffeine than darker ones because of how they're roasted. Try these options to find a coffee that's gentler on the caffeine but still tastes good to you.

If you are sensitive to caffeine, but love to drink coffee, there are a few things you can do. Firstly, choose a coffee maker from our lowest strength collection. The Brew It Stick makes a mild tasting cup of coffee with less caffeine than a cafetiere, pour over or espresso so this is a great place to start. You can then start to look at the coffee beans you are using and the time of day that you drink coffee. If you are sensitive to caffeine, you might prefer a half-caf coffee in the morning, followed by a decaf in the afternoon.

A filter coffee maker is a brewing device that adopts various manual styles like immersion, gravity, or pressurised methods. Its name originates from the use of a filter, either paper or metal, to separate coffee grounds from water during the brewing process. A popular example is a cafetière, which employs a metal filter plunger for this purpose.

Before investing in a filter coffee maker, ensure you have suitable coffee. While pre-ground coffee is available in most supermarkets, grinding fresh beans is recommended for an enhanced home setup. Consider upgrading to an electric burr coffee grinder for better control over grind size, tailored to your specific filter coffee maker.

If purchasing pre-ground, opt for medium-coarse coffee, widely compatible with our range of coffee makers. Elevate your coffee experience by choosing the right grind and brewing method for a delicious cup at home.
