Product Review: Hunt Brothers Coffee French Press

I know I just keep saying it, but M and I love coffee. We will take it just about any way we can get it, but our favorite brewing method is the French Press. When I saw the option to get this nice French Press for free in exchange for my honest review, I jumped on it, because we love a good French Press and this one looked particularly well-constructed and attractive.

So here's what I think: I was right about the construction. This is really well-constructed and durable. I love the solid metal handle. It is modern and looks cool in our kitchen. The capacity is 8 cups or 4 mugs, which is perfect for two people who like to drink more than one cup of coffee in the morning. :) 

We made our coffee the way we usually would, and one interesting thing we noticed about this French Press is that the plunger and platform at the end of it stops about an inch and a half above the bottom of the container. That is different than French Presses I have seen before.

Product Review: Oak Leaf Copper String Lights

I have been looking for some pretty, whimsical decor for our basement, and I found these copper lights. I got them free in exchange for my honest review, but I was looking for something like this anyway. I love them! Although they are waterproof, making them perfect for outdoor parties, camping, or music festivals, I put them in a mason jar for a pretty, relaxing light for our basement office/sitting room.

They don't look like much when they are not on...

But voila!

Product Review: IVOR Coffee Dripper

My husband and I love coffee. I even wish I could drink it right before bed (but of course do not want to be up all night)!

After using the French press, and loving it, for many years, I decided to try this one-cup dripper, completely on a whim. Of course, it helped that I got this at a discount in exchange for my honest review, but I am glad I chose to get it!

I was a little skeptical at first, because it seems like the coffee would not brew long enough, but we ground up the coffee (a medium-fine grind, by the way), put it in the dripper, and poured our hot water over it. I was really surprised, this makes a delicious cup of coffee!

I was really happy with the cleanup process too. Just dump the coffee grounds in the trash or compost and rinse the dripper. That is it!

Even though I received this at a discount in exchange for my honest review, I believe it is worth the full price and would definitely buy this as a gift for friends or family.
