The humble cafetiere is still one of the most popular ways of making luxurious, great-tasting coffee. At Coffee Tasting Club we have a selection of cafetieres and French presses, ranging from single-cup 240ml versions up to one litre versions that are ideal for coffee shops and cafes.
Choose from the simple and convenient Hario French Press, to barista-grade Espro Press products and the innovative Hario V60 coffee decanter, which can make up to three cups of coffee at the perfect strength.
Coffee made using a cafetiere tastes rather different to the same coffee made using an espresso or a stovetop coffee maker, so why not give it a try. You may find you enjoy both the convenience and the milder, more mellow brew.

Why Use A French Press?
A lot of people find themselves questioning whether they should still use a French press when there are several other options for making coffee these days, but cafetieres still have a gap in the market due to the unique type of coffee they produce.
Drip coffee is often described as weak. The brewing process means the beans don’t interact with the coffee beans for long enough to really benefit from a rich enough taste. Espresso machines create a rich coffee but the small shot of coffee is often not enough to satisfy your appetite. Cafetieres produce a great amount of flavoursome coffee. They are perfect for households enjoying morning coffee but likewise they are useful for meeting scenarios at work where people need a considerable amount of coffee, to cater for everyone but also to get them through the paperwork.
What Cafetieres Can I Choose From?
As mentioned earlier we have various styles and sizes. Glass cafetieres are more common as you can watch your coffee brew. If you like the idea of a glass French press however you should look for ones that are double walled. This increases the insulation to keep your coffee warmer for longer on the inside, rather than using a thermal glass straight away you can leave it in the cafetiere for longer. It also means you are less likely to burn your fingers if you touch the glass as the outside doesn’t get as hot.
Plastic cafetieres look like glass, they are transparent so you can watch the coffee making process. These however are shatterproof, they are cooler on the outside but they won’t keep your coffee warm on the inside. They are cheaper however.
Ceramic models are decorative and tend not to be transparent. They can also break more easily but they do look more stylish and elegant within your home.
Stainless steel French presses are becoming increasingly popular. They are more durable so won’t break, they are stylish and while you can’t see the coffee, the insulation properties of the material are better than all other models for keeping your coffee hot. Do beware however
