How to make French Press coffee

“I think that possibly maybe I’m falling for you.” One of the many songs involving one of my favorite things. I can recollect early Sunday mornings watching my great grandmother make coffee. It was very rare that my parents would ever drink coffee, actually I would go as far as to say that coffee was a foreign concept in our home. If we were drinking anything relative to the bean, it was in the form of an icy cold frap mostly consumed by a syrup of some sort (probably chocolate in my case). My great grandmother, who we referred to as Nanny had an internal clock that would hardly ever let her sleep past the 6 a.m. hour. And her morning ritual was a cup of black coffee in a floral mug.

As I stood in the doorway, I can recall the beams of light blinding me as her silhouette reached for the shimmery blue can …

dose. [coffee and tea]….’java nirvana’

I am a sucker for warm welcoming environments with good views & eats.

(We love you Hersh) But anyways, come and rediscover you muse for the American infatuation with edible gold. Oh, yeah! The title of the ‘highlight’ is “More coffee and chocolate, please?” [There are moments in life when you taste something and it completely changes your perspective on what you can get from a certain type of product. It could be an fresh-picked heirloom tomato, a masterfully crafted beer, or a hand-brewed cup of coffee. If you haven’t already had this happen with chocolate, Mast Brothers Chocolate will most certainly do it – and we’re proud to now be selling a selection of their bars at dose. Working out of Brooklyn, NY, Mast Brothers has slowly been building critical acclaim and a widening fan base. They specialize …
