How often should I replace the filter in my Core Coffee Press?
The metal filter in a French press should be replaced when it shows signs of damage or wear, such as warping or tearing, and the frequency depends on factors like usage, cleaning habits, and overall maintenance. With regular inspection and proper care, a metal filter can typically last several months to a couple of years.
My cafetiere lets too many grounds into my cup, is there anything I can do?
The metal mesh filter is designed to stop coarse ground coffee getting into your cup, but as it is not as fine as a paper filter it does allow a small amount of residual grounds through. The easiest way to solve this is to get a second mesh filter and add that onto your cafetiere plunger.
