Gavin: "OOh, can't wait for my morning coffee...." *SMASH* ...."Noooooooooo!!"
Don't be like Gavin, get a stainless steel double walled plunger.
Avanti's Modena coffee plungers are made using high quality 18/8 stainless steel with a mirror finish and are double walled so your coffee keeps its temperature for longer.
To brew correctly, simply add coffee to the brew chamber. We recommend using a dessert spoon of medium ground coffee per cup (e.g. 3 spoons for a 3 cup, etc.), however this is just a guide and you can add as much or as little coffee as desired. Next, add hot water (be sure not to use boiling water as this will burn the coffee and leave you with a bitter finish). Once you have added the desired amount of water, stir the coffee and then place the plunger and lid over the top, without plunging just yet. This will keep some of the heat in while you brew your coffee. Allow 4 minutes for brewing and then slowly plunge the coffee. This will hold the grinds down the bottom, allowing you to pour the fluid out for you enjoyment.
You may need to replace certain parts of your plunger from time to time - for example if your mesh screen is failing to hold down the grinds. We usually carry the mesh filters for most sizes and other parts of the assembly are often available but can usually be ordered if we do not have them in stock. Contact us here for parts enquiries.
