The Plunger, Cafetière or French Press

The cafetière usually consists of a glass jug (pitcher) which has a plunger. The plunger goes through the lid and has a metal filter at the end - this tightly fits the jug. The plunger is first removed and the coffee - a medium grind is usually recommended - placed at the bottom of the jug, boiling water is then added and the coffee is left to brew for a few minutes. The plunger is then firmly pushed down; this action effectively separates the coffee grounds from the brew, leaving you with a great tasting cup of coffee.
