How to Make A Perfect Cup of Coffee

Happy Saturday, Embarque Readers!

If you love coffee as much as I do, this is the post for you.

A friend of mine told me about french press coffee, and I have to say this has changed the way I make coffee (on the weekends at least).

Here’s what you need:

  • Your favorite ground coffee beans (if you don’t have a grinder to grind them right before you brew)
  • Water
  • French Press
  • Kettle
  • Coffee cup
  • Frothing wand (Optional) Buy HERE
  • Milk and sweetener (Optional)



  1. Boil a kettle of filtered water

kettle2.     Scoop 1/2 C of coffee grounds in the french press


3. Pour the boiling water in the french press and let the mixture brew for 4 minutes


brew4. Optional: Pour milk into the coffee cup, heat in the microwave for 30 seconds

5. Optional: Use the frother to aerate your milk


6. Pour the coffee into to coffee cup and add sweeter (if you choose to do so)


7. Enjoy!

Finished coffee

With Love,
