#148- Classin’ things up over here

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.

  1. Shea, As the one who enlightened you and told you to let your coffee steep before pressing, I should have also told you that you can’t use regular ground coffee with the french press. You need it ground more coursely. Either grind it yourself or ask your local coffee spot to grind for a french press. Good luck. Hope it gets to divine.
