Tool: Coffee Press
A simple coffee brewing device consisting of a cylindrical container usually made of glass, equipped with a lid and a metal or plastic "plunger." The plunger, which has a fine mesh filter, fits tightly in the cylinder. Coffee is brewed by placing the coffee and water together, leaving to brew for a few minutes, then depressing the plunger to trap the coffee grounds at the bottom of the jug. The coffee is much improved if the glass container is warmed by filling with warm water and emptying before making the coffee.
A coffee press is also useful for making foamed milk. Fill half way with warm milk, press the plunger up and down about twenty times, and the milk will be as foamy as if it were made in a cappuccino machine.
