Posts Tagged ‘french press’

This is something Tanisha would ask me every morning when she was home on maternity leave with the Wee Baby Esther. We both love coffee and after a restless night, it’s usually just what you need to get the day started or maintain sanity. That and a giant plate of bacon.

A few years back, I opted for a french press. I like it because it’s simple to use and you can make killer coffee, figuratively. It’s as good as coffee shop but without the smug barista. Also, I recommend grinding your own coffee. It’s an extra step but definitely worth it. Below, you will find links for both a french press and grinder. I’ve also included the step by step instructions for brewing coffee.

1. Boil water.

2. Grind coffee. Medium coarse is recommended.

3. Add 2 tablespoons of coffee for every 6 ounces of water.

4. Remove boiling water from heat. Let cool 10-15 seconds. Steadily pour water into pot to your desired level.

5. Stir the coffee grounds and water.

6. Add lid and let steep for 4-5 minutes. SET A TIMER! (sorry to yell, but it’s important)

7. Push down plunger with steady pressure.

8. Enjoy your coffee.

UPDATE: And for anyone that wants to discard this advice. Here is a link to a reusable K-Cup filter. This way you can still grind your own beans and it’s less expensive than buying the pre-packaged K-Cups.
