French Press

A very long time ago, my friend Laura gave me a wonderful French press. I used it from time to time at home, but I used it all the time while camping. It was awesome! About 2 years ago it broke- so sad! I replaced it with a regular coffee maker and then sort of forgot about it. About a month ago we were in Target looking for dorm room stuff for Travis and came across some adorable, brightly colored French presses. I thought it would be nice to have, but didn’t know if I should get one- I mean really, how many coffee makers does one person need? I think I own 5!

 

Fast forward to move-in day at the condo and I remembered that Alex doesn’t drink coffee! Seriously, how could a child of mine not drink coffee? What am I going to do when I visit him? Well, we solved that problem – off to Target for this adorable bright turquoise french press, and now it’s even on sale! Yay!

We decided we needed to try it out – the coffee was yummy. I’m so happy to have a 6th coffeemaker!

Pour the ground coffee into the bottom of the French Press, and pour hot water over the top. Stir it up then leave for 3 to 4 minutes and then press and drink. We used it on our recent camping trip and it was awesome! It was definitely strong and had a real kick!

  1. One can never have enough coffee makers! I love this one!! Currently my coffee making involves a stick blender as we are into the Bulletproof coffee recipe! It’s on my ‘Tried and True’ Pinterest Board.

  2. I’m with Laura — you can never have too many coffee makers! 😉 I love my French press, but often forget about it pushed to the back of my cupboard. I think I shall dig it out tonight…..

  3. Oh fun! We used our french press yesterday and then let the coffee cool a bit and then made iced coffee. It was so good!
