Can I use filter ground coffee in a cafetiere?
Yes. Many roasters recommend opting for a finer grind size when brewing using a cafetiere. Our filter ground coffee option is perfect for use in a cafetiere. The metal filter is still fine enough to prevent sediment passing into the final cup whilst optimising the cleanliness of the extraction, delivering a smooth, crisp cup of coffee. We recommend brewing for slightly less time when using a finer grind size, aiming for approximately 4 minutes as opposed to the usual 6-minute brewing time.
