How Does a Cafetiere Work?
Using a cafetiere means a coffee can brew without using the boiling process and provides a richer taste and a better brew overall.
A cafetiere, or French press, provides a quick and simple way to produce delicious, fresh coffee at any time. You can create lattes and cappuccinos with your own ground coffee for plenty of fresh brews to keep you going throughout the day. Manufactured from high-grade, luxurious stainless steel, the double-walled design insulates the coffee to keep it warm while the measuring spoon has a deep recess that allows you to collect the exact amount of coffee required without any mess and achieve the perfect strength of coffee.
The cool-touch handle also makes pouring easy and safe, no matter how hot your coffee is, and the locking lid prevents any accidental spillages.
Is It Dishwasher Safe?
Yes - you can simply pop your Andrew James Cafetiere in the dishwasher for easy cleaning. Constructed from high-quality stainless steel and resistant to extremes of both boiling and cold water, this reduces the risk of rust over time. It also reduces the risk of breakage, unlike glass cafetieres, and prevents leaching from plastic, unlike plastic French presses.

Using a cafetiere is very simple and straightforward. Remove the lid and plunger and preheat the jug by filling with boiling water. While the jug warms, grind your beans to a medium consistency, although you can use pre-ground coffee if you wish. Empty the hot water from the jug and place your required amount of coffee in the base. Top with hot, but not boiling, water, as boiling water can burn your coffee grounds and add a very bitter taste. Replace the lid with the plunger pulled all the way up and allow the coffee to infuse for 4 minutes. Once the coffee has infused, push the plunger down to separate the grounds from your brew. You can then pour and serve.
When you brew coffee in a cafetiere, it is infused rather than having high pressure forcing through it. The coffee you use in a cafetiere needs to be more coarsely ground and as fresh as possible.
