COFFEE TIME

Le Creuset

I have my morning routine all set up. In the interest of saving money, I make my coffee and breakfast at home before I leave for work. I used to make my coffee in one of those old Mr. Coffee pots but it just didn’t fit my coffee needs.

Le Creuset

What are my coffee needs? I like my coffee to be DARK and BOLD because then I just bastardize it by adding cream to it. But I love that mix of dark and bold with cream and Mr. Coffee just wasn’t cutting it. With that old coffee maker, I was getting ridiculously watery coffee, that if I added milk to it, got even more watery.

Le Creuset

I was researching other coffee brewing methods but my needs for coffee are fast and strong. After a lot of research, I decided to go with the simple French Press method. I used to own a French Press but ended up tossing it because it was that cheap kind where the coffee grounds got into your coffee. . .no bueno.

Le Creuset

I also wanted something aesthetically pleasing and with the advent of blush pink beingย the color of 2017, I decided to go with the Le Creuset French Press in Hibiscus Pink. It holds the perfect cup (and a half!) of coffee and the best part is….no grounds!!

So How Do You Do It?

First, you boil the water. We have one of those machines that dispenses hot water at all times, so this part is easy.

Add the water to the press.

Put your coffee grounds on top of the mesh sieve and plunge into the press.

Wait 3-5 minutes and enjoy your coffee!

This has honestly made my mornings so much easier. And the quality of the french press is amazing, because, well it’s Le Creuset! It doesn’t crack or stain or get too hot. You can wash it in your dishwasher and it’s ridiculously easy to clean. I generally let it steep as I take a shower and once I get out of the shower, throw some cream in there and drink my coffee!

The storage canister perfectly matches the french press as well; it has this silicone ring along the edges so it keeps your coffee grounds fresh.

And because I need everything to match, I have 2 of the bistro cups in the same hibiscus pink. My kitchen is in pink overload and I’m honestly obsessed.

  • Your photography is absolutely amazing! I don’t have such a set but I am thinking about buying one! xx corinne

  • I’m a huge coffee snob. I hate the kieregg machines. I prefer the old-fashioned French press method . I would love to have one of these coffee pots not only are they functional but they are absolutely adorable .

  • Oh how cute is your coffee pot, the colour is just absolutely perfect. I can imagine it being the pot at the centre of an afternoon get together.

    I am italian and here in Italy coffee is an ancient tradition. I love to do mine at home in the morning, can’t wake up and go out without! Love your supplies, so pretty!

  • Alison Rost

    How adorable is this fresh press?! In fact, my husband is our coffee drinker and every morning he uses this method to make his brew. I’ll have to go online and look at what other colors they have. He has a birthday coming up. While I’d love the pretty pink one, I image he’d like something a little more masculine! x

  • Ophelia Tang
