Everyone has a different preference when it comes to how they want to get their morning coffee. Some want to down multiple cups from a huge pot before they walk out the door; others don't want to bother with it at all, preferring to pick up a fancy concoction every day at their local coffee shop on the way to the office.
If you're somewhere in the middle of those two things, we strongly recommend the French press.
The brew process is one of the easiest, least expensive ways to make great coffee. It's decidedly low-tech: All you need is some hot water, ground coffee, the device, and some arm muscles to press the coffee.
Want to give it a try? You're in luck! One of the best — and most stylish — French presses you can buy is currently on sale.
The Switzerland-based company Bodum has been crafting the highest-quality French presses (and other java-making accessories) for nearly 75 years, and its copper line is as beautiful as it is functional, making it a welcome addition to your morning routine — and countertops. The 34-ounce model makes up to eight cups of coffee in just four minutes, so while it's not automatic, you can still use it during harried weekday mornings. Just start the steeping process and finish getting ready while you wait.
