How to - core coffee press filter

To change the metal filter on a cafetiere (French press), follow these steps:

  1. Disassemble the Plunger:

    • Separate the plunger assembly by unscrewing the metal rod from the mesh filter. This usually involves twisting the metal rod counterclockwise.
  2. Remove the Old Filter:

    • Take out the old metal filter from the plunger assembly. If it's stuck, gently tap the plunger on a soft surface to release the filter.
  3. Clean the Plunger:

    • Before inserting the new filter, make sure to clean the plunger thoroughly, removing any coffee grounds or residue.
  4. Insert the New Metal Filter:

    • Place the new metal filter into the plunger assembly. Ensure it fits snugly and sits flat to create a proper seal.
  5. Reassemble the Plunger:

    • Reattach the metal rod to the plunger assembly by screwing it back in a clockwise direction. Tighten it securely but avoid overtightening.
  6. Test the Cafetiere:

    • After replacing the filter, test the cafetiere by pushing the plunger down and up a few times without coffee grounds to ensure smooth operation.

Changing the metal filter is a simple process that helps maintain the performance and quality of your cafetiere for optimal coffee brewing.
