French Press

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

Yahoo! It's not a surprise that I love coffee, so a few days ago Balazs and I finally got a French press. Do you use it as well? We really enjoy the raw coffee taste and the rich aroma. Plus, this brewing process is somehow deeply relaxing. I made a whole pot of сafetière à piston (as the French would say) this morning and the whole flat smells like rosted coffee beans. I love that! How about you, darling? How do you make your coffee? What coffee maker you use? xo

Btw: Hugh, did this awesome video on how to brew a perfect "morning eye opener". I promise after you see it you will want a cuppa:)

P.S: An awesome giveaway is coming later today!!!

Diana, You know what's really good :) And after this film with beautiful music I had to do my afternoon cup of coffe. And yes, I am using French press too. For me it is the first thing in the morning, everyday :) sometimes when I need a bigger kick I use Italian espresso maker, but I`m addicted to coffe...

ilene @ muchloveilly said...

i need one! i've had coffee from a friend's french press and it was incredible.

Sara said...

Love my french press. Have been using one for years. I like the process. Recently i switched to an eva solo carafe. I like this as well, I like the design. 1 cup of great coffee a day. That's all I need, but I usually have 2.:)

Tish said...

Oh yes...Jersey got me HOOKED on french pressing (I just made it a verb. Aren't I snazzy?)

Although, yesterday I made THE worst pot of java I've ever tasted. We had to laugh it was so bad....shame.

Diana Mieczan said...

hahaha..you are, Tish! I have some of my coffee left, so come over for a cup:)

Diana Mieczan said...

Sara, I just had a look at the eva solo carafe and it looks so cool.

jeanette from everton terrace said...

This might shock some but I don't like coffee :) So no, I haven't tried the french press but it's sexy looking.

That's Not My Age said...

I need one of these - we only have a small kitchen so no room for a big coffee making machine!

Bride-onicles said...

I have never used one but maybe we should put one on our gift registry! I didn't have coffee ALLL day yesterday and was dragging and had a caffeinne headache by 9PM..Hope you had a great holiday weekend!!!

Mo Pie, Please said...

This may have just changed my life. I was never sure about french press for my own personal use because every time I make it, it always turns out sludgy. I think my problem is I never stirred it to mix the water and grounds up like he did! I'm so going to try it again as soon as we move and unpack (I can't find the french press now!). Thanks for sharing!!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

mmmm that sounds wonderful! might have to look into getting a little one for the office...that would make mondays much more tolerable!

Marjorie Rose said...

Oh! Now I'm going to have my second cuppa :)

I'm so glad you got a french press! They're the best. I'm so surprised you didn't have one already!

Monica from Hola!design said...

yumm I love coffee, too! I never tried a french press, I have a espresso maker....

now i craving coffee!

Diana Mieczan said...

Annie, I know! We really wanted to get it for a while but till now we mostly used the classic Italian moka coffee maker. This totally changed my morning routine and I love it!

Diana Mieczan said...

Mo Pie.P, yup, mixing the water and grounds up will do the trick for sure. Btw: Congrats on the move! That's so exciting.

Nikki said...

I have a french press at work because I don't like the office coffee. I'm sure they all think I'm a snob, but so be it ;)

La Feem said...

French presses are lovely. xoxo

Carly said...

I can't tell a lie...french presses intimidate me...I feel like I would have NO idea how to use it.
But the coffee always tastes SO delicious...maybe it is time to get over my fear. lol.
Happy week to you:)
