There are two categories of coffee drinkers in the world. The ‘average’ and the ‘connoisseur’. On any given morning in my home, you’ll hear the rumble of coffee beans grinding. My morning joe is a very important part of my day. Using a ceramic french press is worth the extra effort if coffee is your morning everything. If there is one simple thing I’d like for Mother’s Day, it would be a freshly brewed cup of coffee brought to my bedside.
So while I received the BonJour Coffee & Tea Wayfarer™ Ceramic French Press as a media sample, it is 100% something that I would love to have as a Mother’s Day Gift.
What makes this BonJour French Press so unique is the BonJour Flavor Lock® Filter. It works by stopping the brewing process to preserve coffee’s fresh pressed flavor, which makes for the ultimate cup!
The BonJour Wayfarer French Press is so easy to use; before brewing make sure to line up the imprinted numbers on the discs when putting the filter together.
Then add one tablespoon of ground coffee per cup, coarse or medium coarse is best for a French Press.
Pour boiling water into the carafe within approximately 1 inch from the top of the carafe and stir with a non-metallic utensil. Turn the knob to open the BonJour Flavor Lock® and place the lid on the carafe. Brew four minutes. With one hand firmly holding the handle, use the other hand to slowly press the plunger down to filter the coffee. Turn the knob to close the BonJour Flavor Lock® to stop the brewing (see the filter in the bottom picture that’s the magic that happens when you close the filter!), then pour and enjoy. Clean up on this is easy too.
The Wayfarer™ Ceramic French Press has a full 8-demitasse-cup capacity, and the teakwood knob at the top adds a touch of warmth and timeless elegance. The heat retention is much better on this ceramic french press than on others I have owned. I make 24 oz of coffee in it and the first two 8 oz cups are always hot and even by the time I’m ready for the third, while it’s not piping hot any more it is still at a drinkable temperature.
This is a great splurge for the Total Java Mama for Mother’s Day this year. BonJour Coffee & Tea Wayfarer™ Ceramic French Press will satisfy all the coffee loving moms out there. You can find it at PotsandPans.com and it retails for $49.99.
