Last week I introduced you to (slow) filter coffee, this time around I’m introducing you to the french press. I’ve been on the lookout to buy myself one of these for ages so I was a happy camper when the people from Belgian chain store Fun asked me to test the Bodum french press coffee maker.
Over the past couple of years I’ve seen myself turn into a true coffee afficionado. I can’t remember when I had my first cup of coffee though, I just know that it was early on. While I stuck to the traditional coffee maker for years, I found myself drawn to barista-made coffee in the recent years. Until recently, the barista-made coffee was sipped in the coffee bars I frequented in different locations. However, earlier this year, Steven and I took a slow coffee class, where we learned all the different techniques to provide us with a cup of barista-made coffee at home. Discover a couple of tips and tricks after the jump.
