Country Cleaver

{4th Day of Christmas} – Bodum French Press

On the fourth day of Christmas Bodum gave to you – a heavily caffeinated perfect cup of coffee.

I’m from Seattle. I grew up where Startbucks came to be. Starbucks is what we mainline straight to our veins. Or, Seattle’s Best or Tully’s or Terra Vida, or Millstone – ya know we just mainline whatever caffeinated brown liquid beverage we can find. Are we sad? NO.

But with the various ways to prepare your coffee, which way is truly the best? Esspresso? Drip? Americano? Instant? French Press?

(If anyone out there answered instant coffee is the best out there, I don’t know if we can be friends…)

I maintain, firmly – that the french press is the way to go. And Bodum USA is helping spread the French Press love by giving away a 34 ounce Bodum Crema French Press to one lucky Country Cleaver winner.

Ben and I wake up every Saturday and Sunday morning with a BIG Feistaware mug of French Press in hand. And I’m proud to have converted this ole stick in the mud, who used to buy the size 5 tin of instand coffee into a real coffee afficienado! *Pats myself on the back* That instant coffee habit of his was nearly a deal breaker…

You should wake up Christmas morning with a spring in your step, a strong cup of coffee in hand and watch the chilluns tear apart all of your red-eyed midnight wrap session work with a smile on your face and a twinkle in your eye. Bunny slippers are also – mandatory.

Hey, at least I’m not requiring you all don the Pink Nightmare from A Christmas Story!! You’re welcome.

Tell me – Do you need to sharpen you knifes this holiday season? (mandatory entry)

    We sharpened the knives on Thanksgiving. They really needed it to carve the turkey.

    We have a knife sharpener guy at the Farmers Market who sharpens knives for free. Which is kind of weird, because…why? For real: WHy? but he does a good job.
    Oh and my french press JUST broke and I want to cry a little bit.

    My husband always sharpens my knives. Like a lot. He can’t stand to see me hacking away at something. Well, he is a surgeon so maybe that’s his thing?:).
