My sister-in-law and niece visited over the weekend. I fixed breakfast
Saturday. Counting my wife and me we had 4 coffee lovers in the house. I
wanted our guests to enjoy good fresh roast coffee, but didn't have anything
with which to brew four large mugs at one time. I have a Mr. Coffee or
similar coffee brewer, a French Press and an AeroPress. The French Press is
just large enough to make two mugs of coffee.
I started to brew two cups and then two more, but the AP caught my eye.
Using that, I would have poured part of the hot water onto the grounds and
then poured the rest into the cup. Well, I thought, why couldn't I just do
the same thing with the FP? So, I put enough coffee grounds (Rocky 25
grind) for four cups in the FP, filled it with 200 degree water, covered
it, let it sit for two minutes, stirred it, let it sit for another minute,
plunged, and then filled each mug half full and topped off with hot water.
The coffee was wonderful. Both guests raved about it, remarked at how
different it was than anything they had ever had before.
Probably most of you old FP pros already knew about this method, but it was
new to me and I am so happy I got such good results.
Bill Allison, still in awe about how much there is to learn
