Le Creuset fans have been chomping at the bit to get their hands on the iconic kitchenware brand’s latest addition – this stylish coffee plunger. Available in most of their signature colours, the stoneware plunger is a typical French Press coffee maker, which many java addicts claim is one of the best brewing methods. This is because the longer contact of coffee with water allows for a richer, fuller taste and heady aromas. Just like any French press, make sure to use coarsely ground coffee beans, steep them in boiling water, and then filter away the grains by plunging the mesh sieve through the press. The added bonus of this new gadget is that tea lovers can enjoy it too. Simply brew your tea leaves for a few minutes before pressing down the plunger. The Le Creuset Plunger is available from all Le Creuset stores or lecreuset.co.za and retails for R630.
