Cafetieres for fresh coffee
Aah, freshly brewed coffee. The aroma of coffee beans, the sound of boiling water poured over the beans and, not least, the smell that spreads throughout the room. When you sip your coffee, you get to savour the coffee bean’s refined taste and quality. And the coffee bean is truly allowed to come into its own when you make your coffee in a cafetiere. This is because you are involved in the entire process from start to finish, so you decide how intense the flavour should be. Freshly brewed coffee is one of the best things we know here at Rosendahl.com. That’s why we also carry cafetieres in our range, so you can quickly and easily make your own cup of coffee at home.

How does a cafetiere work?
When you make coffee in a cafetiere, you get freshly brewed coffee that's a little different from ordinary filter coffee. You don't just pour coffee powder into a filter, pour water into the machine and press a button. With a cafetiere, it's down to you to filter the coffee. To do this, press the plunger down on the lid and you'll get clean and filtered coffee. With the help of the cafetiere, you can decide how fine your coffee should be ground, the dosage, water temperature and drawing time. This gives you much more influence on how the coffee will taste.
Coffee from a cafetiere – can you taste the difference?
Coffee is an individual matter. Some people prefer their coffee strong, while others prefer a mild cup of coffee. Others love to sweeten their coffee with a little milk, cream or sugar. So when you talk about a good cup of coffee, it's very individual what this means.
As to whether coffee tastes different when it's made in a cafetiere – we can answer that. Because yes, it does. Not only do you take part in the whole process, but the coffee you make has a deeper and fuller taste, no matter how you prefer your coffee. This is because the coffee is able to mix more with the coffee grounds, unlike filter coffee. The coffee is in better, and longer, contact with the water than with filter coffee, where the water flows through the ground coffee and the filter, which draws the coffee through.
Choose the right cafetiere
When buying a cafetiere, it’s a good idea to look at what it’s made of. Most cafetieres are made of glass, but not all are equally protected against knocks and falls. You can also find steel or ceramic cafetieres that are better able to handle being knocked over or dropped, but they have a different look and may not be dishwasher safe. If you choose a glass design, it's a good idea to check whether you can get a replacement glass beaker. Sometimes accidents happen, and it would be a shame to have to throw away your cafetiere. With a new glass beaker you can easily replace the old one.
As with all kitchen equipment, it’s also worth considering how much cleaning it requires. You can buy cafetieres were most or all the parts can go in the dishwasher, which makes your daily life easier. We carry these types of cafetieres as part of our range. They combine clean, simple design with high functionality, as no compromises have been made to the product itself. Design also plays a role in finding the right cafetiere, and this is often a personal choice. While some prefer the traditional glass cafetiere, others prefer a ceramic design or an insulated cafetiere in stainless steel. So think about which design you like best.
How to brew the perfect cafetiere coffee
First, you can relax. The cafetiere is one of the easiest brewing methods to get started with. You'll get the best taste from a cafetiere by using whole coffee beans rather than ground coffee. These should be coarsely ground, as too finely ground beans will seep through the filter and into the coffee. Now, pour the water over the ground coffee beans. This should be between 90 and 96 degrees. You can get this temperature by boiling the water in an electric kettle and letting it stand for about two minutes before you pour it into the cafetiere. You should let the coffee sit for about 4 minutes. In the meantime, you can just relax and enjoy yourself. The longer it draws, the stronger it gets, so you can try out a little to find the optimal time for your personal taste. After the coffee has drawn, remove any froth with a spoon and press down on the plunger.
We recommend pouring the coffee into a thermos flask after brewing. This allows the coffee to stay warm for longer while also removing the coffee from the coffee beans that are at the bottom of the cafetiere, which will only make it bitter at this point. A good tip is to wait another five minutes before drinking the coffee. This allows the coffee’s taste and aroma to stand out more.
Experience 'hygge' by making coffee in a cafetiere
Would you like to invite your friends over for an elegant cup of coffee? Then it’s time to place the cafetiere on the table. Not only is it stylish to look at, it’s also a more personable way to make coffee. Just imagine sitting at the table with a good friend. You've placed some cookies on the table together with a couple of coffee cups. Now, you place the cafetiere between the pair of you. The fact that you can brew the coffee yourself right there on the table gives a very special feeling of cosiness, rather than when the coffee is brewed in the coffee machine in the background. This is why you'll also find cafetieres in a lot of cafes, because many people believe that it is much more cosy than serving it in a thermos jug.
Cleaning the cafetiere
Once you're done using your cafetiere, it's important to clean it well. Fortunately, this is very easy and straightforward. With a cafetiere from Rosendahl, you can put all the parts in your dishwasher, as long as you remember to remove the coffee grounds first. Otherwise, you will have coffee grounds all around your dishwasher.
Of course, you can easily wash it by hand with warm water and washing-up liquid. First remove the grounds, then pour some soap and water into one side of the glass. Now slide the plunger up and down until foam forms, then rinse well with water. Then take the cafetiere apart and clean the individual parts free of coffee grounds and rinse.
Don't forget coffee cups and mugs
In order to enjoy a good cup of coffee, you need a nice mug. Perhaps you already have a favourite mug that has special sentimental value. If you haven't, you can find one in our range. We offer cups with handles and mugs without handles. You’ll also find cups with saucers, depending on what you’re looking for in your kitchen. At Rosendahl.com you’ll find coffee cups and mugs in a wealth of different designs, colours and beautiful patterns. Choose from classic white porcelain cups and mugs without saucers that can hold a larger cup of coffee. You can also find thermo mugs and to-go mugs to take with you on-the-go.
