Top Ways to Get your Holiday Coffee Fix

Christmas is just around the corner and that means summer holidays which also means that your favourite cafe will be shutting down for a bit. But don’t panic, we’ve come up with some handy caffeinated ideas that you can use at home or on holidays.

Option 1

There aren’t many of us who lug our espresso machine, grinder and other coffee essentials on holidays. It’s just too much hassle. An easier retro option is to pack a plunger and some ground coffee then all you have to do is add water and plunge away! If you’re into exact quantities etc here’s the super-correct way to make incredible coffee while you’re away…

Plunger Brewing Method:

  1. Spoon approximately 10g of pre-ground coffee per serve (roughly one heaped tablespoon) into the plunger.
  2. Fill your plunger with water that’s just below boiling (90-95 degrees) and sit the plunger head on the top of the water.
  3. Brew for 3-4 minutes
  4. Plunge away and enjoy!
Top tips:
  • Make sure you serve the coffee immediately. Do not let it sit as it will continue to brew.
  • It’s important to choose the right coffee to plunge which is why we’ve created our Plunger Bundle – find it here…

Option​ ​2

If you’re not into plunging then why not try a more modern take on portable coffee making with an Aeropress or V60 appliances?! Simple and painless, these gadgets will fit easily into suitcases so you can have a great morning coffee without any hassle.
