John & Linda,
My wife and I often kid with friends and family that we've become "coffe snobs"; coffee-holics would be more like it.
Coffee is one of the few areas we splurge without a second thought.We only drink Starbucks or it's equivelant, and it has to be Xtra Bold beans, (grindfor 12 seconds just before brewing), and we use 3 1/2 scoops per 16 oz. cup. We get a LOT of house/yard work done sometimes, and we get it done fast!
We've looked atStarbucks' coffee presses a dozen times, always considering one, but never buying. So, how big is your press, how many oz's? How long does it take to press? Do you grind your own, and if so, how long do you grind it for?Any other info will be appreciated.
