THE FRENCH PRESS/PLUNGER
Heat | Warm your vessel before brewing by running hot water through it. Remember to throw out that water before starting brewing.
Water | Even though tap water in Melbourne, and Australia is delish & clean, we always brew with filtered water. It eliminates any 'extras' that come through you pipes. It also softens the water, and makes comparison between our cafes easier.
Freshness | It's not a marketing ploy. Buying smaller amounts more frequently means your coffee will taste better. We reckon you should use coffee one month after roast. Yes, grinding just before you brew gives you the best result. But we know not everyone can get their hands on a grinder, that's why we'll grind it for you.
