The Planetary Design Plungers

The Planetary Design Plungers
If you like to drink A LOT of coffee at home, love camping and wish your coffee stayed warm for longer. We’ve got something for you!
 
 

PLANETARY DESIGN

 

The planetary design plungers are very well designed and durable, you can take them wherever you go with no smash or breakage anxiety. Unlike your classic glass plunger, these are stainless steel double-walled and vacuum insulated and can keep coffee warm for up to 2 hours.

The series features a built-in bru-stop press screen, which halts the brewing process when the plunger is pressed down, acting as a divider that separates coffee and water from each other. Expect to never have an over-brewed bitter coffee again!
 
 
 

THE DOUBLE SHOT COFFEE PRESS

WITH COFFEE STORAGE CONTAINER

 

The initiative design of the double shot coffee press allows you to carry fresh, ground coffee no matter where you are. It has a handy built-in coffee storage container that is accessible by twisting the bottom part of the press. 

 

BREW GUIDE - PLANETARY SERIES

 

 01.
 

Set your kettle to boil, preferably using spring water over using tap water. Grind your coffee to a medium coarseness and measure out the dose for your brew.

 02.


Fill your plunger/press about one-quarter full with hot water and press the plunger all the way down. Swirl the hot water around inside the French press for about 10 seconds, then pull the plunger up and remove the lid. Discard the rinse water. Then pour your ground coffee into the French Press and gently shake it back and forth to settle the grounds.

 03.

Pour about a third of your hot water evenly over the grounds and use a spoon to gently stir, so the coffee is wet throughout. This step is called the bloom. Hot water forces the ground coffee to release trapped gases, leading to the expansion of the coffee and wonderful aromas for you to enjoy. Allow the coffee to bloom for the time listed above (based on the amount of coffee).
 

04.

Pour the remaining dose of your hot water over the coffee and stir gently again. Place the lid on your French press with the plunger pulled all the way up, and let the coffee steep.

 

05.

Slowly press the plunger all the way down to filter the grounds from the coffee. If it’s hard to press, that means your grind is too fine; if the plunger “thunks” immediately down to the floor, it means your grind is too coarse.

06.

You can now take your time to savour your coffee due to the design of the plunger. The bru-stop system locks the extraction at the point of the press and the double-walled insulated body will keep your coffee hot for up to 2 hours.

  

PRO TIP:
To make your coffee stronger, make the grind slightly finer (smaller particles), and vice versa (coarse - larger particles) for weaker coffee.  Note. this is purely for strength as a component of flavour. The caffeine will be the same for both options.
