FAQs – Coffee Gator


Why the dickens did you call it Gator?

Alligators are among the most successful animals on earth, they have been here for around 35 million years. We wanted to transmit to our customers the feeling that our products are of such quality they can be functional after many years of use. You can be sure you can walk into your kitchen in 50 years, look at your gator and think: “Wow this is a fossil to my kitchen, just like rel gators”. Gators are also interesting and powerful animals and when we say powerful we wouldn’t just write down “Coffee-Lion” that would be boring and predictable (although we love lions too).

Why do you recommend a 9 minutes method for French Press coffee brewing when everything I see online recommends four to five minutes?

The 9 minute method is what James Hoffmann recommends. The added time makes a better brew. It’s not really possible without a double-wall French press like ours as it stays hot for longer.

How does the valve work?

The canister features an airtight seal and a one-way valve built into the lid which allows Co2 to escape. This valve is crucial to helping your coffee stay fresh for longer as freshly roasted coffee emits Co2 gas which can attack and destroy coffee flavor.

When your beans are then ground the amount of carbon dioxide produced hugely increases in a short period of time. The valve is a fairly simple device which allows carbon dioxide to escape by “lifting” the sealer to allow flow, but when air comes from outside of the canister the sealer is closed onto the Inlet which prevents oxygen from entering the canister.

Should I replace my coffee canister valves? If so, how often?

Yes the valves should be replaced every six months. To replace it open the lid of the canister and from the inner part gently push the valve from the inner to the outer part of the lid. After you hear a "click" the whole mechanism of dialing comes out, replace the valve and put it back in the same order on top of the lid. Push the dialing mecahnism softly from the outer towards the inner part until you hear two "clicks" then the dialing mechanism would be safely placed.

Can this kettle be used on the induction burners?

Sure, It can be used with induction, halogen, gas or electric ranges.

If you are using an induction heater you might hear a humming sound. This is normal and due to vibrations between the heater and kettle.

What is the mini canister for?

The mini canister is an ideal solution to transport small amounts of coffee for the day. For example if you would like to bring your favourite coffee from home to your office for an afterlunch cup of coffee, the minicanister is the best solution.

Can the coffee canister be used in the refrigerator?
