I first experienced tasting this new thing at Green Zebra a few years ago and it was truly divine.
I made french pressed coffee.
After shopping around, I realized that many french press machines are not expensive. I bought this one at World Market. The first few times I used it resulted in failure. I then realized I wasn’t doing it correctly- I was pushing down the press before I let it steep. Oh, the embarrassment. When I corrected my mistake, the coffee came out slightly better, but still not great. I wonder if the Costco brand coffee I used doesn’t fare so well in a french press. I will try again with some decent coffee, but overall I remain annoyed.
