Recommended Tools


  • Start by boiling some water. An electric kettle makes it a lot faster.
  • Preheat the filter and cup by pouring a bit of boiling water through it.
  • Remove the metal filter and pour in 1 heaping tablespoon of Cafe Du Monde.
  • Twist the filter on gently until it just starts to stop. Then turn it little more, a bit less than 1/8 a turn.
  • Pour a tiny bit of water in the filter just to wet the grind and to let the grind expand a bit. This will help rid of some small grinds that happen to make it through the filter. You can toss it out if you see any.
  • Fill the filter all the way and let it drip. Ideal brewing time comes to about 3 to 5 minutes so adjust the filter accordingly. Too loose and you'll just have runny brown water. Too tight and nothing will drip through. The filter will be hot, so use a fork or another utensil to adjust the filter. Place the cap on and watch the coffee drip!
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of condensed milk and slowly add more to taste. Stir to fullly dissolve.
  • For iced coffee, let it cool off a bit then pour the brew into a glass filled with ice.
