Cafetiere Coffee Vs Filter Coffee
The cafetiere (or French press) method is one of the most popular ways to brew coffee at home. It works by steeping the coffee in water, then separating the grounds from the liquid using a plunger.
This is in contrast to the filter (or drip) method, which works by dripping hot water through coffee in a filter, so the coffee grounds never steep in the liquid.
Both have their advantages in terms of flavour. Cafetieres extract much more of the flavoursome oils from coffee grounds, resulting in a richer, fuller-bodied taste that fills the mouth and throat. Filters, meanwhile, tend to result in a cleaner, more defined flavour that's concentrated on the tongue.
As to which is better, it's all down to the way you prefer your coffee! If you'd like to try the filter method, look for Le'Xpress's Coffee Filter and Measuring Spoon set (search product code KCCOFFEESET).
Le'Xpress serves that all important shot of caffeine, soothing peppermint tea, calming pot of tea and comforting mug of steaming hot chocolate. Whatever your hot drink of choice, Le'Xpress can make, serve and store them all.
