Whittard Copper 8-Cup Cafetière
Out of stock
Take control of your coffee-making with our classic cafetière. This elegant French press let's you make coffee exactly to your preference, adjusting to water temperature and brew time to suit your taste.
Also known as the 'French press', cafetières are great when you want easy-going coffee with a deliciously full flavour. This cafetière makes around eight espresso cups (or a couple of mugs). It's gracefully designed in hardwearing borosilicate glass and gleaming copper-hued stainless steel, so perfect when you've got guests. There's even a scoop included to help you get the perfect measure of coffee.
While any coffee can be used, we think medium-dark and dark roasts are particularly well suited to cafetière brewing. The natural oils of the coffee beans are brought out during roasting, which transfer to the coffee and give you a smoother, more robust coffee. So if you want to add a bit of chic to your morning routine, or you'd like to make a grand impression when entertaining, look no further than a Whittard Cafetière.

Très Français, N'est-ce Pas?
In spite of its name, the cafetière – or "French press" – was invented by an Italian man in 1929. Today it's one of the most recognisable and popular ways of making coffee; we recommend using a coarser grind for a complex, full-bodied brew.
- Add one scoop of coarsely ground coffee per person to the cafetière. Boil the kettle, wait for a minute or two, and then pour just enough water onto the grounds to cover them. Wait for 30 seconds.
- Top up with the desired amount of water, put the lid on, and leave the plunger up. Brew for around 4 minutes.
- Slowly plunge, then pour and enjoy!
