French Press Tutorial

I was planning on doing my last 30 for 30 today, but well it's rainy & gross outside,
So instead, I'm sharing some of my morning laziness with you.

Here is my promised French Press tutorial 
[From this day]:

What you will need:
  • Coffee  {Works best if it is a medium to course ground}
  • Hot Water {All you will have to do is boil the water on a stove top}
  • Coffee condiments [sugar, cream, etc] {I prefer normally drinking the coffee black}
  1. Grind coffee and place scoops at the bottom of the press
    1.  Use two rounded tablespoons of coffee for each eight oz. of water- I suggested using four to five rounded coffee scoops for the average coffee press. {It’s all to taste really, for a lighter brew use less coffee to water ratio & vise versa}
  2. Boil Water & pour over the grounds- You will pour this to the top of the press- and give it a quick stir to make sure all the grounds are covered with water
  3. Place top of press over brewing grounds but do not press down- allow to sit for 5 minutes {Your screen should be up against the top of the lid}
  4. Once 5 minutes have passed, press down on the plunger- The screen will separate the brewed coffee from the grounds.
  5. Pour & Enjoy your new cup of tastiness.
My friend Jenny from Thrift Store Dress had a really great idea for a delicious & yummy press that I wanted to share with you as well.
Here is a little DIY at home Mocha:
  • Follow steps above but I instead of hot water, make hot cocoa and pour this over the grounds- simply allow to brew as usual, then pour and top with whip cream- This was absolutely INCREDIBLE! Thanks Jenny for the awesome idea! {These pictures I took today are the homemade Mocha}

Also, I made some more delicious Baked Oatmeal, this time with raspberries and blackberries!
& Finally, here is an adorable little girl to brighten your morning:
