Tips For French Press Coffee
My favourite coffee shop, of the franchise kind, has to be Second Cup.
I stopped by my local SC store yesterday to grab a half pound of ground Colombian medium roast coffee. After the order was filled by the worker lady she handed me the bag of gold, and a piece of paper; on it were some handwritten notes:
Tips for French press coffee;
1. Steep coffee in water for 6 to 8 minutes
2. Wrap French press in a tea towel while brewing to preserve warmth
3. When ready to press; do so Gently & Slowly
4. Immediately pour your coffee out after pressing
I was impressed. What service!
The "tea towel" advice is good. I find that the coffee cools quickly after brewing; if I let it sit in the press for any length of time I'm racing to empty my mug.
Coffee from a French Press is pretty fine. Which reminds me....
