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?
