Thanks Colin for waking me up to other types of coffee making. I've been obsessive about espresso for a few years and neglected the simple pleasure of a good cup of black coffee from a french press.

After thinking about some of your past comments I made a delicious cup of regular coffee in a bodem.

speaking of which...

I was prepping some coffee on the weekend...
dumped the beans into the hopper of the Bodum antigua...
set grind to FINE-DRIP

Grind away...
and then I realize that I had no #4 paper filters handy!

Yikes! What to do!?

Grabbed the big bodum (the one that is housed in a Kevlar/rubber coffee cosy...) and dumped the FINE coffee in -
Poured in the hot water and prepped as if it was coarse grind.

And surprise, surprise!
I got a very nice, albeit quite rich and heavily bodied cup of great coffee!

Not quite sure what to call this;
Deep French, Fine Bodum Brew, ?

Just goes to show - necessity is the mother of invention... especially where coffee is concerned.
