Got a French Press (Coffeeblog #10)

August 28, 2010

My neighbor told me to go to TJ Maxx to find a good deal on a french press.  $7.99 for a 12 oz.  I almost got the 35 oz. size for $15.99.  In fact, I stood there for 10 minutes debating which one to get.  I opted for the individual size because I am going to be drinking this by myself mostly and I dont' know maybe I should have gotten the bigger one.  But I bought some yellow converse shoes, too.  Anyway, got one finally. I'm gonna take a break from cowboy style- and drippers suck cuz the lipids don't go through the filter.  I ground up about 3 tablespoons of leftover Starbucks whole bean french roast (as per recommendation in french press instruction- 1 rounded tablespoon for every 4 ounce cup).  Perfect.  I heated up some purified water and did it.  mmmmmm. delicious.  Why have I gone so many years without one?
