Turns out all of my hip friends have been drinking French press coffee for ages. I wish they would have turned me onto it earlier. I stumbled upon it a few months ago when I fell for the adorable French press coffee makers like this one:
French press coffee offers a much wider range of flavors than drip coffee. It's also much easier to make. Am I the only one who struggles to get drip coffee just right? Somehow, French press coffee always tastes wonderfully rich without being too strong or even a tiny bit bitter. Just rinse the coffee maker in warm water, measure in your favorite coffee grounds and add boiling water. Give it a few minutes. Then push the plunger down and pour the coffee out. I can even manage to brew it on a busy morning, though I enjoy myself much more when I'm making a quiet weekend brunch for one. I like to add spices to the grounds and maybe even try my hand at a gourmet cup of coffee by adding warm milk and flavoring syrups for a homemade latte. Really, all you need is a splash of milk to enjoy what the French call "cafe crème."
Do you have any coffee tips that everyone seems to be so good at withholding?
