love the French Press
I don’t know if the French really had anything to do with this, or French Fries for that matter, but I love my new French Press! Got some fresh coarsely ground coffee beans from Starbucks the other day, and they offered me a free cup of coffee. Plus, I snagged the 3 menu posters from the holidays. Made my day! (I posed with a poster, but didn’t have time to photoshop it re: like son, like father)
The coffee does taste better via French Press. So good that I drink coffee black now. I’m told that you can make great tea in it too. No more messing with infusers. Thanks to Dave & Lucy Wang for the tip!
Side note: I see that Starbucks has a newly redesigned home page, classic case of executive preference for flashy visuals on the front page taking up real estate to promote the latest ad, instead of serving web users with how they actually use the web – to quickly get to what they want, which for me, is store locator for meetups and renewing my Starbucks card). What I’d love to see is for Starbucks to serve French-Pressed coffee at the store, that’d bring me back more often! 🙂
