As one of the most compact coffee brewers on the market, the Cafflano Kompact has become a favorite of backpackers, minimalists, and frequent travelers. When not in use, the brewer compresses to a mere 61mm x 108mm and weighs just 220g, making it perfect for brewing on the road.
The Kompact uses mixes bellows-style and immersion brewing to produce full-flavoured and full-bodied that’s similar to coffee from a french press or the Aeropress.
Basic Cafflano Kompact Instructions:
- Uncompress the brewer.
- Grind 16g of coffee at a medium setting and place in the Kompact.
- Add 270g of hot water and attach the airlock cap.
- Wait 2-3 minutes, then take the airlock cap off.
- Flip the brewer over onto a mug and press down firmly.
The spill-free airlock cap allows you to cold brew coffee. Simply mix coarse grounds and cool water, attach the cap, and let it brew for 8-12 hours. Then, remove the cap and press like normal.
The Cafflano Kompact is primarily built with food-grade silicone that’s very durable. It also
features a built-in stainless steel etched filter. This encourages a richer brew and eliminates paper waste. However, if you’d like to use a paper filter from time-to-time, Aeropress filters are compatible.
Cleaning the brewer is very quick. Simply add hot water to the brewer and press the bellows several times to flush out coffee grounds.
