Equipment

  • Plunger
  • Fresh ground coffee
  • Spoon
  • Kettle

Step 1
Scoop ground coffee into your plunger. We recommend one rounded dessert spoon per cup as a good ratio to follow.

Step 2
Fill the plunger with hot water.

Step 3
Stir gently and avoid tapping the sides of the plunger as the glass beakers may crack.

Step 4
Plunge immediately. You will know you have the correct grind and amount of coffee when it is firm to plunge. Use one hand to steady the plunger with the spout pointed away from you and plunge straight down with firm and steady pressure for 20 seconds.

Step 5
Pour and serve immediately.

Remember, when making coffee at home:

  • Fresh is best when it comes to coffee – we recommend buying your coffee in smaller quantities, more frequently.
  • We custom-grind for all brewing methods – just tell our staff how you make your coffee at home, or select your brewing method when you order online.
  • Use filtered water where possible.
  • Water should always be hot but not boiling, as boiling water will burn the coffee grounds. Aim for 92°c.
