BREW THE BEST COFFEE ON THE GO
If you get this travel mug, here’s a few tips to guide you toward making a good coffee to take on the go.
List of what you need:
- Your favorite coffee beans (30 grams)
- Hand grinder
- Water (about 12 oz)
- Bodum Travel French Press
Steps to brew coffee in your Bodum travel mug:
Step 1: Put the water on and bring it to a boil.
Step 2: As you wait for the water to boil, start grinding the bean with your hand grinder. If you’re not sure how much coffee bean to use, keep this ratio in mind: 1:12 (coffee-to-water ratio).
Step 3: Put the coffee into the Bodum and add the water slowly. Fill about halfway to allow the gases to be released. Give the coffee a little stir then continue filling with water until you reach the top.
Step 4: Give the coffee a final stir then put on the lid.
Step 5: At this time, you’re probably feeling pressed for time. That’s O.K. You can run out the door to wherever you need to be.
Step 6: About 4 minutes into rush hour, you can press down the plunger and start to enjoy your coffee.
This is the ideal situation. If you’re really pressed for time, you can simple use coffee already ground up and all you need is hot water. You can skip the stirring because your rush to your destination will stir it up the coffee for you.
WHO NEEDS THIS TRAVEL FRENCH PRESS?
If you enjoy the full flavor of the coffee bean and you find yourself pressed for time, this is certainly the best travel mug to get.
The spill proof lid allow you to take this coffee and hurry to the office. It is also ideal for the avid mountain climber who wants to brew a cup and enjoy their drink at the top of their climb.
