Beverages – Coffee (short note)

I’ve just received a french press as an early anniversary present. This and 9 pounds of coffee has made me a happy man. I had never had coffee made in a french press before but it is an eye opening experience. the coffee tastes so much fuller and richer. I am sold. I have made around a dozen cups since getting it yesterday and would willingly throw away my drip machine at this point. good ingredients + good technique = excellent beverage.

    unless you are willing to get up at five in the morning to make me a fresh cup of french pressed cafe I suggest you do not throw out our drip machine…but, i am glad you are enjoying your gift.

    Well said xtna 😉 There comes a point where the search for perfection runs into how much work it causes. Obviously I’m a lazy person, The only thing that makes them special is because I don’t do them very often.

    Ah, you make me wish I still drank coffee. French press is by far the best. It satisfied all me needs in the coffee department–there was a ritual, exact temperatures and timings, plus the flavor…wow. I loved making Italian roast in the press–that was by far my favorite discovery vs. how it tastes the dowdy old drip way.

    Xtna—you made me laugh out loud, because for some reason you conjured the mental image of our intrepid blogger wearing a French maid’s outfit making you the press coffee at 5 A.M. and calling you “ma’am” pronounced British-style…

    “Will there be anything else, yer mahhhhm?”

  5. Instant satisfaction. I love those things….
