Spotlight On…Coffee in Color
Just in time for the holidays is a new French Press!
And this time, the double-walled Frieling French Press that you know and love in stainless steel has a whole new decorator look.
I love the colors and it’s hard to pick just one. Since they are color-coded, you can easily buy one for coffee and one for loose-leaf tea and never get them mixed up.
For example, I have a green one for tea and a sunny yellow one for coffee. They look good together and I can set them out when I entertain so tea drinkers and coffee drinkers get equal billing!

Frieling Double-Walled French Press Coffee in Color

  • 34 ounces
  • 6 gorgeous decorator colors
  • Stainless steel with lacquered finish
  • Keeps beverages hot 4x longer than glass


Why Coffee Lovers Love a French Press:
1.  Taste
Rich, Robust and Delicious. Because there is no paper filter used with a French press, more of the aromatic oils of the coffee bean make it to your cup.
2.  Control
You have more control over how your coffee tastes since you control the water temperature and brewing time. Which means you can experiment and find your perfect cup of Joe.
3.  Portability
You can use it anywhere. A French press is easy to travel with and the FrielingFrench Presses are insulated stainless steel, so they won’t break! It packs easily, and you can have great coffee wherever you are.
How to Brew Coffee in a French Press:
1.  Heat the water to 195°F*
2.  Grind the coffee beans to a medium grind
3.  Place 1 tablespoon of grounds for every 4 ounces of water inside the press
4.  Saturate the grounds (pour the water) and stir gently
5.  Place the plunger unit on top of the press (but don’t plunge yet)
6.  Set a timer for 4 minutes
7.  With the spout turned away from you, push the plunger unit straight down using minimal pressure to lower the [grounds and] filter to the bottom
8.  Serve and enjoy
*If you don’t have a thermometer, a good rule of thumb is to boil the water, remove it from the heat and wait 45-60 seconds before pouring.
Espresso Martini
The Espresso Martini is having a moment and I love one both after dinner or as an afternoon cocktail. This drink is also very easy to make in bulk and served over ice or shaken over ice and portioned out into individual glasses and would be a nice treat after Thanksgiving dinner!
2    ounces favorite vodka
½  ounce coffee liqueur such as Kahlua, Tia Maria or Mr. Black
½  ounce maple syrup or simple syrup
1    ounce espresso, freshly brewed
1.  Add vodka, coffee liqueur, espresso and simple syrup to a shaker filled with ice and shake until well-chilled.
2.  Strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve over crushed ice.
3.  Cheers!
I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the Holiday Season.
I’ll see you next month!
