Like the title says:
Bought my first French press and coffee grinder today. Gonna bring it to work and leave it there as that's where I will drink it the most and need it the most.:tu:noon

Nice!!

If I left my FP at work.. they'd:
1. Break it
2. Not know how to use it
3. Spit in it
4. Grind up leftover burgers in it.

So, it sits on my countertop at home..

Which ones did you get??

Congratulations Justin! You'll definitely enjoy the Bodum press. I've had mine for many years and really enjoy the coffee it puts out. A medium grind works well in these and does not clog the fine mesh screen as you plunge the coffee grounds to the bottom:tu

Just made 3 cups of coffee at work. YUM! I had to buy Starbucks Guatemala Antigua because I was running short on time b4 work and couldn't find much whole bean. Added two sugar and one creamer and it's awesome, and I'm not a coffee person. :noon
