A beloved companion for coffee enthusiasts and a staple in kitchens around the world, the 8-cup cafetiere, also known as a French press, is a sophisticated and timeless brewing device that marries simplicity with excellence. Crafted with a combination of sleek design and functionality, this coffee maker is a testament to the art of manual coffee brewing.

At its core, the 8-cup cafetiere is a vessel designed to extract the full-bodied richness of coffee grounds through the immersion brewing method. Standing tall and proud, it consists of a cylindrical glass or stainless steel body, which serves as a transparent window into the coffee-making process. The transparency not only adds an aesthetic appeal to the device but also allows the user to witness the mesmerizing dance of coffee grounds and hot water, creating a sensory experience that goes beyond just taste.

The magic begins with the plunger and filter system, the heart of the cafetiere. A meticulously designed stainless steel or nylon mesh filter is attached to the plunger, ensuring that no stray grounds infiltrate the final brew while still allowing the full flavour profile to be extracted. The plunger itself is a dual-purpose tool, serving as both a lid to retain heat during brewing and a mechanism to separate the grounds from the liquid when the brewing process is complete.

One of the defining features of an 8-cup cafetiere is its generous capacity. Able to produce up to eight cups of coffee in a single brew, this coffee maker is perfect for entertaining guests or fuelling a caffeine-loving household. The large volume doesn't compromise on quality, as each cup retains the robust and nuanced flavours that define a well-brewed coffee.

The cafetiere is user-friendly, making it an ideal choice for both seasoned coffee aficionados and those new to the world of manual brewing. The brewing process is a symphony of simplicity: coarsely ground coffee is combined with hot water, left to steep, and then separated from the liquid with a gentle press of the plunger. This method allows for a more direct interaction with the brewing process, giving the user control over variables like steeping time and water temperature, resulting in a cup of coffee tailored to personal preferences.

Versatility is another hallmark of the 8-cup cafetiere. While it excels at producing a full-bodied and rich coffee, it can also be employed for brewing loose-leaf teas. The device transforms into a vessel for steeping tea leaves, allowing for a seamless transition between coffee and tea brewing without compromising on flavour integrity.

The design of the cafetiere is a fusion of form and function. The sleek lines and polished surfaces of stainless steel models lend a modern and sophisticated aesthetic to any kitchen, while glass models provide a visually pleasing transparency that showcases the coffee's transformation from grounds to liquid gold. The handle, often made of heat-resistant materials, ensures a comfortable grip during pouring, adding an element of practicality to the elegant design.

Maintenance is a breeze with the 8-cup cafetiere. The detachable components, such as the plunger and filter, can be easily disassembled and cleaned, either by hand or in the dishwasher, depending on the material. This user-friendly approach extends the lifespan of the cafetiere, making it a durable and reliable companion for the long haul.

In conclusion, the 8-cup cafetiere is more than just a coffee maker; it's a vessel that encapsulates the ritual and artistry of manual brewing. With its capacity to produce ample servings of rich and flavourful coffee, its sleek and functional design, and its versatility in accommodating different brewing preferences, the 8-cup cafetiere stands as a timeless icon in the world of coffee culture, inviting enthusiasts to savour the beauty of a well-crafted cup.

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.
