My favorite part of every morning is slumping out of bed, pulling my favorite wearable blanket over my head, and sleepwalking downstairs to the kitchen to make my first of several cups of coffee of the day. And on slower days, I might even take a little extra time to make my many cups of joe.
There are many things to consider when it comes to your morning coffee routine. You need to have your mug choice nailed down of course, but aside from that, it's also essential to know the way you'll prepare your morning. Some like the pour-over method, some like a smoother brew via the drip method, and others like a fast track to caffeine with instant coffee. Me personally? I'm a French press man myself. I like how it produced a robust cup of coffee without adding too much extra time onto your usual routine.
There are plenty of places you can go to grab a French press, but why not just toss one into your cart on your next trip to Aldi? The German-based retailer has continued to add to its line of high-quality home goods, and while supplies last, shoppers can grab a deal on the Crofton Stainless Steel French Press in the chain's famed Aldi Finds section.
This super sleek French press boasts an impressive 34-ounce, eight-cup capacity and is constructed with a durable 304 stainless steel interior. The coffee filter inside is a 3-layer stainless steel design, which ensures that those pesky little coffee grounds stay out of your morning brew. What's more, you can toss the entire French press in the dishwasher when you’re done, and the mesh filter screen is easily removable to make cleaning the trickier spots a breeze.
Take your pick between a sleek matte black version or a wonderfully shiny stainless steel option and match the gadget to your style. At $15, this coffee pot is a steal compared to similar-sized French press machines.
If you’ve never used a French press before, the gadget can seem a bit intimidating at first. But take it from me, it couldn’t be easier to operate. Simply scoop your favorite coarsely ground coffee into the container, pour hot water over the grounds, and let them steep for about four minutes. Once the coffee has steeped to your liking, the only thing left to do is press down on the plunger to separate the grounds from the deliciously fragrant coffee waiting for you.
