How do You Make Your Coffee?
The folks at Ultimate Kitchen sent me a French press coffee maker.
We have a traditional electric coffee maker, but I'm not a fan of the thing. It takes up counter space and is hard to keep clean and, since we don't use it on a regular basis, I think I spend more time cleaning the thing than actually using it. Compared to that, the French press is so much easier! My husband has one he keeps in his locker at work. Our oldest son got one for Christmas. And now we've got one in the kitchen that everyone can use.
I'm not a big coffee drinker. Until our Hawaii trip earlier this summer, I wouldn't have described myself as a coffee drinker at all, but the coffee plantation tour ended with samples of all of their flavored coffees. I didn't know it came in banana nut. That could motivate me to learn how to make my own coffee.
For now, Teenage Son is the one who makes most of the coffee at our house, so he helped me put together a quick video showing how the French press works.
