I got some jamacan blue mountain coffee from a local coffee merchant for christmas and I'm worried that I'm becoming addicted to it (as an espresso from a stove kettle).
The way to make time for french press coffee in the morning is to put the hot water and coffee in the pot then leave it to steep while you shower. I like my coffee stronger then most though.

Yeah.... I like strong tea, but overly strong coffee doesn't appeal to me.
Surprisingly, even though Starbucks doesn't sell them, they offer directions and advice on how to grind beans for and prepare espresso with the stove-top aluminum devices. I remember the advantages being:
- Doesn't need power
- Perfect for people who don't want or need steam for their espresso.

I got a bag of Peet's Holiday Blend from my cousin for Christmas. I can't wait to get into it, but I'm selfish and am not too keen on sharing with my roommate, so I gotta wait til he leaves town for a couple of days.Kuha'o - Kela - Koa

You think that's a hassle, you should see what I go through for a Dewar flask of hot black tea...I would liken it to the boxing or the muay thai of internal kung fu, even though that's like calling apples the oranges of the apple world. --WalkOn
