How to make French press coffee - it's simple, easy, rich, and flavorful!

How to Make French Press Coffee

Please tell me why I didn’t learn to do this years ago.  Making French press coffee is so simple that I found myself literally slapping my own forehead at how I had missed out on this.

The truth is that coffee has become a driving force in my life relatively recently, so (thankfully) I can’t regret too much lost time.  However, the discovery of how to make French press coffee is something I must share with any of you who have not tried it yet.

Since learning how to make French press coffee, I have made it part of my daily routine.  I have the most adorable mini French press, and just looking at it sitting on the counter brings a smile to my face.

Today, I’m using a new creamer from Silk.  Silk Almond Creamers are non-dairy, non-GMO, gluten free, and lactose free.  Did I mention they come in lovely flavors?  There’s Vanilla, Caramel, and Hazelnut to choose from!

I picked up my Silk Almond Creamer in the dairy case at Walmart.

All three flavors have no artificial flavors or colors, no cholesterol, and no saturated fat.  The subtle nutty flavor, combined with Vanilla, Caramel, or Hazelnut, can transform your coffee into a real coffeehouse style flavored coffee.

They’re a perfect addition to your daily cup of coffee.  Plus, Silk Almond Creamers are an excellent option for when you have company that prefers dairy-free creamer.  Try adding it to your French press coffee!

You’ll find that using the French press coffee method will add a richness and depth of flavor to a cup of coffee that drip coffee just can’t math.  Plus, it’s grand fun.  Enjoy!
