french inspiration

The past few weeks I've been enjoying the art of making a French Press Coffee in the morning. I love the ritual. Every step keeps me present and focused-

Choosing the perfect blend of coffee beans,

making sure the grind is coarse enough,

the water temperature is just right,

and that the coffee steeps for just the exact amount of time.

There is definitely an artistic science to the French Press Coffee and it's been a great way to start the morning.

Even though I've never been to France, here's some French inspiration for you on this lovely Tuesday! Or at least things that start with the word 'French'.
