Trying Out the French Press

One cold night last week, I got home from work and wanted a cup of coffee to warm me up. Since the coffee had already been set up for the next day in the coffee pot, I decided to get out our new French press and give it a try. The first time I made it way too weak but the second time it was much better. I still like my coffee from the pot but this was good for a quick cup. Have you ever tried to make coffee with a French press?

I always wanted one of these. I have tasted coffee made in them in restaurants and cafes, and while it was really good, i felt it was a tad too strong, and i do like my coffee on the strong side! I guess the type of coffee and the measurement is key. Enjoy, though! I am in love with my Keurig. xo

I have never tried coffee this way at home, I have had it in restaurants. So glad you enjoyed and that the second cup turned out.

I like French press coffee when it is not too terribly strong. We bought one last summer at a small roasting house. She taught me how to make the coffee for best result and it was fantastic! But the clean-up brought out my laziness and I've since forgotten how.

Never tried it, thanks for sharing.

Hi Katie, I used to have a french press but I got rid of it and haven't had it in a long time. I guess I should give it a try again.
