Funding Circle Friends

Hello friends of Funding Circle

Thanks for finding this page, great to see you're looking for the best method to brew that coffee sample of yours.

Your sample bag will make approximately 5 cups of 'french press' or 'cafetiere' coffee (so choose who you make one for wisely!).

Should you think our coffee is really great (why thanks), we've created a little 15% off code for you (because YOU'RE really great) to use in the next month, simple enter FUND15 at the checkout.

Things you will need to make a really great cup of coffee:

  1. A cafetiere/french press (same things different names)
  2. Ideally some scales
  3. Even more ideally, some sort of timer/stop watch
  4. A kettle
  5. Something to stir with, a wooden spoon perhaps?

 

Here's how to make 1 cup:

  1. Weigh out 15g (or 2 level tablespoons approx) of our delicious coffee
  2. Fill your kettle with at least 250g (or one cup) of water and leave it for 1 minute off the boil
  3. Pour you coffee into your cafetiere/french press and place it on a set of scales.
  4. Zero or 'tare' the scale, using your phone, a clever watch, or the elephant counting system start a timer as soon as you start to pour your water.
  5. Give it a cheeky little stir once you've used all 250g of water to break up any sneaky lumps.
  6. Let it brew for 4 mins, perhaps think about how great kittens are in that period.
  7. 'Break the crust' - this means give is a couple of big stirs.
  8. Insert the plunger and press down slowly/gently.
  9. Pour the coffee carefully into your chosen cup, the slower you pour the less likely those little grinds are likely to go with it.
  10. Sit back and marvel at your new found coffee mastery.

 

Here's how to make 5 cups (using your sample in one go):

  1. To start with, make sure you have a cafetiere/french press that will hold 5 cups or 1250g of water.
  2. Fill your kettle with at least 1250g of water and leave it for 1 minute off the boil.
  3. Empty your entire sample into your cafetiere/french press and place it on a set of scales.
  4. Zero or 'tare' the scale, using your phone, a clever watch, or the elephant counting system start a timer as soon as you start to pour your water.
  5. Give it a cheeky little stir once you've used all 1250g of water to break up any sneaky lumps.
  6. Let it brew for 4 mins, perhaps think about how great biscuits are in that period.
  7. 'Break the crust' - this means give is a couple of big stirs.
  8. Insert the plunger and press down slowly/gently.
  9. Pour the coffee carefully into your chosen cup, the slower you pour the less likely those little grinds are likely to go with it.
  10. Sit back and marvel at your new found coffee mastery.
