Using a cafetiere can improve the flavour of your coffee, as it heats the beans without exposing them to the boiling process. To get the best out of your cafetiere, you need to use high-quality coffee. By combining a quality cafetiere with the very best coffee, you can treat yourself to a rich and flavourful coffee experience whenever you want it.

Also, a kettle takes up more space on your countertops, so if you install a boiled water tap, you’ll have more space for other gadgets.
