    Recently, I wanted to brew my own coffee at home. My favorite brand of coffee is Peet’s Coffee. Oh my Lord, it is so smooth and heavenly. The only type of coffee I drink is black coffee and milk/cream. No sugar. So, I got an extra french press (suggested by my cousin) from my sister. Oh goodness, it’s amazing! Oh the recipes I want to try! 😲
