The Scoop with a Twist
Making coffee correctly is very important. Because getting this wrong can be a taste disaster – no one likes bitter burnt coffee (you don’t do you?)!
The beauty of cafetiere coffee is that it combines simplicity in preparation with a great outcome. Coffee which is brewed in a cafetiere is infused, much like tea (which is why you can make tea in a cafetiere too), rather than having high pressure forcing through it, like in an espresso.
This means, for the best results, the beans should be more coarsely ground. The flavours created with a cafetiere tend to be slightly milder and more evenly balanced than say in espresso.
In our opinion the coffee should be stirred. This is where Scoof comes in, because it stirs better than anything we know (short of picking up the cafetiere and shaking it).
