I recently acquired a French Coffee Press, which I have never used before. I like my coffee in the morning, but hate making a full pot as that is just too much caffeine for just one person. I tried the French Press for the first time this week, and I am in LOVE!!! The coffee comes out creamy and perfect every time, and I can heat a kettle of water first thing in the morning (excuse to make a tea kettle cozy!), and have coffee as I want/need it all morning long! Why didn't I get one of these sooner?! Not to mention, this makes one more non-electric appliance to replace my plug-in everything in the kitchen! Hubby still will want his pot of coffee on the weekends, but I can live with that. I wonder if I could get away with putting the coffee pot in the cabinet during the week, as it takes up so much room on the counter. I'm still looking for a hand crank coffee grinder, but these are very hard to find in the thrift shops. Now if only I had my woodstove, even the hot water would be passive. One step at a time!
