Filter Coffee FAQs

What is filter coffee?

Filter coffee is a term used to describe how coffee is brewed. It can broadly be categorised into two areas; drip brewing and immersion. Both methods involve combing hot water with coarsely ground coffee to create something delicious. Whilst drip brewing involves pouring water over coffee grounds, and letting it pass through using gravity (V60, Kalita, Chemex) immersion brewing is where the coffee ground and water are combined (immersed) together.

  • Both approaches can provide different flavour profiles in the final cup, shop our range of coffee brewers to find your favourite device.
How do you filter coffee grounds?

This is typically done with a metal or paper coffee filter.

What is the best grind size for filter coffee?

This depends on what coffee brewer you use. We recommend choosing whole bean for maximum freshness and using a home grinder to fine tune your grind size. If you don’t have a grinder at home, simply select our filter grind type option.

What equipment do you need to make filter coffee?

You simply need a coffee brewer and some coffee filter papers to get started. We always recommend weighing your dose, so scales are important too. That’s it, you’re good to go. Elevate your setup with a home grinder, kettle, ceramic cup and server.

How long should you leave filter coffee to brew?

Again, this depends on the coffee and final profile you want. A good benchmark is to use 15g of coffee per 250g of water, and aim for a brewing time of 3-5 minutes. Watch our coffee brew guides for more information.

What’s the difference between filter coffee and cafetiere coffee?

Filter coffee is an umbrella term used to describe one approach to brewing coffee. Cafetiere coffee falls into this category.

What’s the difference between filter coffee and espresso coffee?

There are many differences between filter and espresso coffee, including the brewing method, ratio and recipes, and final flavour profile. Coffee brewers are used for filter coffee, whereas espresso uses home espresso machine. Typically, filter coffee uses a 1:15 water to coffee ratio, whereas espresso is closer to 1:2. Soft, smooth, vibrant are often terms used to describe filter coffee whilst espresso is typically described as rich, bold and intense.

Can you use filter coffee grounds with AeroPress?

Yes. Our coffee is omni-roasted, which means it will work well with all brewing devices.
