Brew Guide (Cafetiere)
Brewing a Cafetiere using the Bodum
- by our Cafe Manager, Joel Darville
For this one, you're going to need a cafetiere - obviously, we recommend the Bodum Brazil, you'll also need a kettle, filtered water, grinder, scales and some roasted coffee.
40g coffee (medium/coarse grind - 9.0 on EK) / 600ml water / 95 degree water / 5 min brew time (1:15 brew ratio)
START - Pour all 600ml into cafetiere
- Stir coffee four times
Leave coffee for 3 minutes then stir again four times
At 5 mins use the two spoons to remove the crust from the top of the coffee
Insert plunger but only press to the top off the coffee and use as a filter
- Pour and enjoy.
If the coffee is too strong and heavy, use less coffee or brew for less time.
If the coffee is weak and thin, use more coffee or brew for longer.
If the coffee is bitter, grind coarser next time
If the coffee is sharp, sour or flat, grind finer next time.
If the coffee is just right, grab a pal and share a brew together.
