While I most certainly have my personal preferences, when it comes to coffee, pretty much anything will do in a pinch. While I make my own coffee at home nearly every day, sometimes I feel like indulging in some java that’s, you know, a little more extra. Sure, I absolutely love an afternoon latte for a quick pick-me-up, but there’s also something undeniably indulgent about french press coffee.
Maybe it’s because I have fond memories of slipping a french press with my best friend in college over hours of conversation, but there’s something that just feels far more elevated about drinking coffee made via french press than a normal cup of drip coffee. Fortunately, you don’t have to head to a pricey coffee shop to get your french press fix—there are plenty of affordable options you can get for your home. Of course, there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to mastering the fine art of french press coffee—or, at least there was for me—but once you get the hang of it, it’ll be pretty hard to go back to your conventional coffee maker—trust me on this one.
