I wake up around 6:30am and start boiling water for a french press. I grind the beans to slightly coarse and scoop the exact amount needed into the press. After the water is done boiling I let it rest 1 minute before slow pouring it over the grounds. I give it a quick stir and let the mixture steep for 4 minutes. One more stir. A firm press. Bam. Perfect vacation coffee. I then sit at the kitchen counter and enjoy a book for a good hour before the rest of the house wakes.
What is your morning routine? Could it be slowed down? I love hearing about other people's daily habits, and you may discover a new idea of your own.
