French Coffee Press by Chefs Limited

Have you ever tried a french coffee press before? I haven't so this was something new for me. To tell the truth I didn't even know anything about them so it was interesting to find out. The Chefs Limited French Coffee Press came delivered to my doorstep packaged very securely with no problem.

When opening the box I was very impressed at how beautiful this french press looked. It is a very elegant product which is made of stainless steel and heat resistant borosilicate glass. It makes 32 ounces of coffee which amounts to about 8 cups or 4 mugs. Before you use it you have to boil some water separately depending on how much coffee you want. If the water gets to the boiling point then let it sit about 3 to 5 minutes. Or just take the water off the stove before it gets to the boiling point. According to the company, you don't actually want to use boiling water because it can scald the grounds.

All you do is use some of your favorite ground coffee. A coarser grind works better because finely ground coffee can clog the holes in the plunger which may give you more sediment in your drink. For each cup use about a tablespoon of coffee, which is what I normally do. You then carefully add the water, leaving at least an inch or more of space at the top. Then stir a little using a plastic spoon or chopstick. It's not recommended to use a metal spoon because of the possibility of glass breakage.

Put the plunger and lid on and raise it up, letting your coffee steep for how strong you would like it. When you're done steeping you gently press down on the plunger evenly and straight so you don't have any grounds mixing into your coffee. Then pour yourself a cup of fresh coffee which is very flavorful and rich tasting.

 It was a fun new experience using this French Coffee Press by Chefs Limited. You could also use it for hot tea or iced tea which I'm sure will be used for that also. The press looks so nice sitting on my table and it would be a great idea to use for when you have company over.

If you are interested it may be found on Amazon.
