If you followed my old blog, you know how much I love my French pressed coffee. I don’t always have beans around to brew nowadays, but when I do, you can bet I’m still making myself a cup of morning coffee!
This is by far the most elegant presentation of how to make a pot of coffee in a French press I have ever seen. It’s beautiful. It’s art.
Click here. Then scroll down and watch the video (but read the post, too). Really. Do it. Even if you don’t like coffee, you might appreciate this.
Notice the “bloom” when he pours in the initial bit of water and then the coffee-water expands so nicely? That impressive amount of bloom means the beans are extremely fresh, and really fresh beans mean really delicious coffee. I get this nearly this kind of bloom when I buy my favorite Stumptown Roasters coffee beans.
This video makes me want to turn on some happy Bach, shine my kitchen, gracefully brew a pot of coffee in my own French press, pour it into two beautiful mugs, then walk off to fetch the one who will be drinking it with me.
Check out the whole blog where this was initially posted. It is lovely kitchen blog, and the recipes are good.
