Morning Coffee Break: Ode to the French Press

Feb 20

I’m struggling a bit this morning with my internet access out here in North Dakota, so I thought I’d take a moment for a quick coffee break. If you’re not a coffee drinker, I’m not quite sure how to describe my morning coffee ritual other than to say it’s one of my favorite parts of the day. In our home we’re big on really good coffee and no morning is complete or really ever gets started until the first cups are being sipped. We’re decidedly of the French press, vintage percolator or pour-over coffee making variety. The auto-drip coffee maker was banned many moons ago and shan’t be making a return. That said, our French press recently took a fall from grace so I’m on the hunt to replace this well-loved member of the family. The great debate? Deciding between this gold French press or switching things up with a pretty Chemex pour-over coffee maker. Big decisions, friends, big decisions.
