The Thermo Cafetière keeps coffee hot for longer because it also functions as a vacuum jug. The unique oak handle with its rounded edges provides a secure grip when serving, while the stainless steel pouring spout is completely drip-free. Spoon freshly ground coffee beans into the jug and add boiling water. Stir, and place the plunger in the jug. Allow the coffee to brew for approx. 4 minutes before pressing down the plunger. The coffee is now ready to serve. The plunger is dishwasher-safe, but the jug must be washed by hand because of the oak handle.
