It was a long weekend and I am still recuperating from our Mystery dinner. When I woke up it was the perfect fall day , just a little rainy with white puffy clouds in a gray blue sky. I went to my favorite cafe to have an ice tea and a croissant sandwich … to just relax and enjoy the cool crisp October day…
I picked up this book on Coffee….decovering exploring and enjoying. I was thinking I would create some coffee gift baskets this year , complete with fresh ground coffee a french press and some baked goods . Who wouldn’t love that ? I have been on a French press buying spree lately and found a few at the local thrift stores. Seem a lot of people don’t know how to use them so they throw them out. I am one such person guilty of such a crime, as I was given one as a present and I thought what is this for and I gave it away. Oh well live and learn.
I really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful photographs of cups of coffee and reading about the fact that a French press is the prefered method of rich robust coffee . And of course I knew that ! After all I have about four of them now, as I like to use one for decaf and one for regular and one for espresso, and my guests are always so impressed !
With all theses beautiful photos of coffee, I had to run into the cafe and have a warm cup of coffee for myself…
Whats your favorite season ? Do you own a French press ? I think my next post will be on how to make a great cup of coffee from a french press.
Hope your enjoying this beautiful fall season..
