There is nothing that can greet you in the morning like a wonderful cup of coffee. As I write this, I’m still sipping on my first cup of absinthe-flavored coffee. There are few things that can start your day off quite like a strong cup o’ joe and it’s important to know how to do it right! Don’t be disillusioned – we don’t make French press or espresso every morning of the week. We’re normal and have a coffeemaker where we can preset the time it brews, the night before. Before that, we had a little 4-cup coffeemaker that wasn’t even capable of being preset. But we certainly do enjoy making more specialty coffees, particularly on the weekends! Below you will find the instructions for making a wonderful brew of French press coffee, with step-by-step pictures (don’t get used to that – this was easy to take pictures of along the way; I’m not usually that coordinated!).
