It has been months since our trusty french press bit the dust. First it was the spout that broke and even tho it made a leaky mess when we poured with it, it still worked. Then came the large crack down the front and we finally had to retire it. So, I gave in and let DH replace it with a junky plug-in coffee maker. Ugh!
Well, due to other circumstances, we had to get rid of that junky one and I insisted on replacing it with the real thing again! DH insisted on getting a good one and now our mornings feel like they are back to being good again. I love the difference in the taste and the simplicity of the french press! Now I need to knit it a cozy to keep it warm...as if we ever leave and left over coffee behind! lol
