Caffeine Trivia 11.27.13

THE PLUNGER or CAFETIERE METHOD: The plunger method, thought to have been invented in 1933, extracts the most flavour from the ground beans. Coarsely ground coffee is placed in the warmed pot and hot water added to the grounds.  After stirring the brew is allowed to steep for three to five minutes, before the plunger is pushed down to separate the coffee grounds from the coffee infusion. This method is only slightly less convenient than the filter method and is today one of the two fastest growing ways to make fresh ground coffee.
