I usually have coffee at work everyday, but on weekends I would usually go out and buy a cup somewhere - because I did not want another appliance on the countertop. Let's be honest here - most coffeemakers aren't that attractive anyway.
My darling Cody (he does not like coffee - at all) suggested we get a french press. I really like it - and you know what the best part is - Cody always makes it for me. He is sweet. He seems to like to use it.
This video shows the simplicity of the french press.. and I thought it was cool.
