Using a cafetiere

Posted on July 20, 2016 at 11:07 pm

Instant coffee isn’t the hero it once was in the 1990s. Over the last two decades we’ve all become coffee connoisseurs, and that means we’re happy to grind the coffee beans ourselves and brew the coffee using cafetieres. With a cafetiere you get all of the flavour of the coffee bean, and though it takes a little longer to make, the results are very rewarding. Using a cafetiere is easy when you know how much ground coffee you require and it can be fun to experiment with different strengths. You can buy single cafetieres as well as those large enough for making 6 or 8 cups of coffee, which is perfect if you’re having guests over at your house. If you don’t have one already, buy yourself a cafetiere and open your eyes out the world of freshly roasted, full flavour coffee.

Consider country kitchen accessories like traditional wooden table and chair sets, wooden storage boxes, and carved wood wall hangings. Wooden shelves with cut-outs, like heart shapes, are also useful places for storing your collectibles and kitchen tools. Country-style chairs are often similarly detailed, carved with cutouts and featuring interesting lathing. (more…)
