My husband and I drink coffee every morning. We typically use a single serve brewer. Even though we use compostable coffee pods, I think about how much energy that uses over the year.

When possible, I prefer to use eco-friendly methods over energy intensive methods. When our single serve brewer started acting up, we bought a new coffee pot, which we ended up hating.

So we decided to try something new – making coffee in a French press at home. While you do need to heat the water to make French press coffee, you don’t technically need electricity so I thought it would be a good skill to acquire.

It took some time to figure out all of the nuances, but coffee made in a French press just tastes so special! And don’t worry, it’s so much easier than it sounds! Once you’ve done it a time or two, you’ll be a French press coffee pro.
