Enjoy The Perfect Coffee At Home

Fortunately, at Robert Timms we have created a variety of products to ensure there is a coffee that is right for your tastes and lifestyle. Here are some tips to help you make great coffee at home.

The coffee has been ground to suit a range of home coffee makers, from plungers to percolators, through to drip filter coffee makers. Try the following tips when next making coffee at home.


Pre-warm the pot. Add the measured amount of Robert Timms ground coffee and top with hot (not boiling) water. Allow the coffee to infuse for 3 – 4 minutes, then carefully depress the plunger twice before pouring the coffee in your cup.


  1. Unscrew the base of the cafetiere and take the coffee basket out of the base. Fill the base of the cafetiere with cold water, ensuring the water level is just to the level of the valve.
  2. Fill the basket to the top with ground coffee and use the back of a spoon to smooth the surface, without pressing the coffee into the basket. Place the coffee basket back into the base and screw the base back onto the cafetiere.
  3. Place the cafetiere over medium heat (a hotplate, or gas or electric stovetop is fine) and heat for about 8-10 minutes or until the gurgling sound subsides and all the coffee has risen to the top half of the pot. Don’t put it over a high heat as a slow extraction will yield a better result.
  4. When the gurgling noise stops, immediately remove cafetiere from the heat (it should be about half-full with brewed coffee). If you leave it on the stove too long, the coffee will boil and may develop a burnt flavour.
  5. Stir coffee with a spoon and pour into warmed serving cups. If you like weaker coffee, add hot water to taste.

Drip Filter

Spoon the correct amount of Robert Timms ground coffee into the filter cone of your coffee machine. Add near boiling water to moisten the coffee, allowing grounds to expand, and then add final near-boiling water.

Coffee Bags

The House of Robert Timms coffee bags come in individually wrapped single-serve pouches, delivering maximum freshness, whilst being convenient to take anywhere and easy to use. 

Our coffee bags offer a fast, no fuss way to prepare the perfect cup. Simply pour in the hot water and allow the coffee to infuse for 3-4 minutes. Ensure that the coffee bag is fully immersed in the boiling water for a better flavour.
