Wedding Photographers are some of the most hardcore coffee drinkers I know.  As you’d probably already gathered from the photo above, I am a coffee lover. Me and coffee …..ahem, excuse me: coffee and I, have a tight relationship, an eight-cup-a-day relationship. An 80.00 a month relationship, a dont- talk- to – me -until-I’ve had my 2nd- cup-of-coffee-relationship.  It’s not just me….you’re out there….. I can’t see you but I know that you’re there….

Last spring, I read this fascinating article : How to make coffee at home. ” You’ll have the best cup of coffee known to mankind”  he said, and since he was Howard Schultz, chairman and CEO of Starbucks, I believed him.

So here is an excerpt from that article, and  how I make my coffee at home, and it truly is ” the best cup of coffee known to mankind”

“This is the absolute best way to make coffee at home.

Brewing coffee traditionally does not extract the oils, flavor, and essence of blends or a single varietal.

The French press brings out those flavors. It’s a more robust or, in lay terms, a muddier cup of coffee.

I use a coarse grind of aged Sumatra. Don’t buy preground coffee.

After it’s opened, a bag of whole bean coffee has a shelf life of no more than a week.

Store it in an airtight container on your counter, away from heat, sunlight, and moisture.

Put approximately two tablespoons of coffee per cup in the glass beaker.

Let your filtered water reach a rolling boil before you pour it in.

After the water and coffee steep for three to four minutes, stir it to make sure the grinds are wet and submerged.

Then press the coffee down. I never add milk to my French press, absolutely no milk.

And since the French press should not be on a burner, transfer the coffee to a thermos.

Drink it within an hour or two, at the max.”
