How to Make Perfect French Press Coffee
When you're tired or in a hurry in the morning, it's tempting to just reach for the instant coffee or run by your local coffee shop on your way out the door. But there's something doubly satisfying about taking the time to make coffee the slow way at home.
The ritual of grinding the beans and taking mindful steps to brew your coffee just right make that first sip taste so much better. Plus, you avoid all the pointless waste of K-Cups and single-use paper cups.
The french press (patented by an Italian but so named in America because of its popularity in France) creates one of the tastiest cups of homemade coffee, and requires zero disposable filters or K-Cups. Click below for a step-by-step guide from Portland roaster Stumptown Coffee for making perfect french press coffee right at home.
