I'm a natural night owl with a traditional office job. These are two things that don't go well together, even after a decade of trying. The other problem with an office job is that people are quick to drink all the coffee from the percolating machines without starting a new batch. Last year, I got this French Press as a birthday gift from a friend and it changed the game. With this French Press, I was able to start brewing some decent coffee while working in an office setting - without having to share it with everyone else. The office coffee machine dispenses boiling water which is absolutely perfect. At this point, I now have two - one for the office, one for home. And for home, I pair it with a coffee grinder and an electric kettle. My favorite part of the French Press is that I'm able to make a lighter coffee or a blend darker than the far side of the moon. I can even do both on the same brew - drink one cup sooner and let the rest brew longer. It also works really well with making a cold brew. Overall, this is a simple brewing method with great results.
