Can I use filter ground coffee in a cafetiere?
Filter ground coffee is perfect for use when brewing a cafetiere coffee. The fine grind size allows for more coffee to be in contact with the hot water, making for a stronger, more flavoursome brew. The metal filter in the cafetiere is still fine enough to capture the grounds, delivering a clean cup of coffee. Due to the finer grind size of the coffee, it is recommended to reduce the brewing time slightly, aiming for 4 minutes instead of 6.
What is the best coffee to use for a cafetiere?
The truth is, it’s impossible to say the ‘best coffee for use in a cafetiere’ as everyone will have their own preferences on taste. Our Mexican lighter roast is our most popular coffee here at Barista & Co. With undertones of almond, berry fruit and vanilla, our house roast is best when enjoyed black, allowing the delicate flavours to deliver without compromise.
