Early starts can be a struggle at the best of times but the whole thing would be a lot easier if you knew the secret to a great cup of coffee.

Fortunately, loaded has been busy doing its homework and has come up with a nine-step guide to creating the ultimate cup of morning Java.

Follow these tips, and you’ll be plunging that cafetière like you’ve never plunged anything before. 


1

Choose Your Beans

Choose decent coffee. We’ve found a few selections of ground coffee that aren’t disgusting. ALWAYS look for 100% pure Arabica beans.

Spring For Good Water

Use good water. Tap water ruins the favour of coffee, try using spring water instead.

3

It’s all about the heat

The water temperature should be 90 – 95 Celsius. Boil the kettle then let it sit for about 30 seconds. If you’re using a filter, make sure its ‘dioxin free’ or it will fuck up the taste, like your disgusting tap water. 

 

4

Pouring perfection

For filter coffees, its all about the pour. Pour the hot water into the filter in a circular motion just until the coffee grounds have been saturated. Let the grounds, ‘bloom’ and puff up.

Then repeat until all the coffee has dripped out.

5

Combine Carefully

Now, you’ve come to the point of combining coffee and water. We’ll use a cafetière as the example for this one. A tablespoon per cup, so if you are serving in a six-cup pot then pile in six, earthy mounds of coffee. Pour in 900ml of water (use the water-to-coffee 10:1 guide if you’re confused)

6

Patience

Leave the top off and let it steep for four minutes. 

7

Plunging

Plunge down into the depths until you reach the very bottom. 

 

8

Milk It

If you must have milk then heat it up on the stove, or if you’re a fucking peasant then use the microwave. Its best if you own a steamer.

 

9

Success!

Enjoy the delicious results of your hard work.
