Okay, staying with the coffee gadget theme. If you haven’t had french press coffee, you haven’t lived! First, get yourself a french press. Starbucks sells them, but you can also get them at any coffee specialty store. Then you need coarsely ground coffee! The folks at Starbucks can grind it for you (or any other cafe or coffee shop). Then you pour about 1/2 inch of coffee into the bottom of the french press. Next, pour boiling hot water over the coffee until the carafe is full (about an inch from the top). Place the plunger over the top of the carafe, careful not to plunge it yet! Then let it brew for about 10-20 mins (depending on how strong you want your coffee). Then you push the plunger down to the bottom and voila, you have the yummiest coffee you’ve ever tasted! It maintains all the coffee oils and thus will have a richer taste and creamier consistency! Yummy!
Et Voila, Le Press Francais!
