How to make the perfect coffee?
Here are Sid from Cafezinho’s top tips for making the perfect brew:
- First warm the cafetière with hot water – just like you would a tea pot.
- Measure out a dessert spoonful of coffee per cup (two dessert spoonfuls for mugs) and place into the bottom of the cafetière. If possible, buy coffee beans and grind them yourself as required for the freshest flavour.
- Fill the kettle with fresh water and bring to the boil and then allow to stand for 20 seconds before pouring over the coffee.
- Give it a stir with a wooden spoon and leave to stand for 3-4 minutes without plunging.
- Stir again, then press the plunger down to stop the brewing process.
- Pour slowly into mug…
