Make French Press Coffee Right At Home! @Folgers #Folgers #Ad

    There's just something about making a hot cup of coffee right at home that makes it taste all that much better.  I love it when the delicious aroma of my Folgers Coffeehouse Blend permeates through the whole house.  Not to mention the fact that it also saves me a ton of money since I'm not purchasing my coffee at expensive coffee shops.  Recently, I have been experimenting with different ways to prepare my morning coffee and I stumbled upon the French Press.     A French Press is a brewing apparatus that extracts coffee from the grounds through a process where you "bloom" or steep your coffee in boiling water.  It is a favorite among coffee aficionados because it has a strong, true coffee flavor since the coffee to water ratio is higher in every cup.  Most Hispanic households love to drink their coffee strong so I immediately knew that preparing my coffee this way would immediately catapult me back to my childhood in Spain.   … [Read more...]
