MONEY SAVERS – PERFECT PLUNGER COFFEE

5

The other day I totted up how much my coffee is costing a week (I buy it every morning). It was a pretty serious expense. As I am currently in the final couple of weeks of my PhD and income-less, I can’t just be throwing dollars around like a baller. Plus, as an ex-barista, I’m one of those fussy arseholes. I get really resentful of paying $4.40 for a cup and tasting bitter coffee, or milk on it’s third stretch. So, for now, I have decided to go back to plunger. For anyone else trying to save $30 a week, here are instructions to make a good cup of plunger coffee. Just the act of making it before everyone else is up on a Sunday morning is pretty magical.

1) If you have a coffee grinder and can buy whole beans that is better. But if not, just get a nice dark roast – fair trade, organic. This one comes in around $8 and it’s yum. If you like you can warm the plunger with hot water first and then tip out the water.

2) Add one heavy scoop of coffee per cup.

3) Boil the jug, but don’t pour the water in straight away. Give it about a minute to cool. Pour in the corresponding number of cups. This plunger is better for making four cups, but I’m just making two today.

4) Give it a little stir.

5) Plunge!

6) I heat a little milk on the stove.

7) Serve immediately and add your milk. Hey presto!

Return to bed with the essentials. Here are my current Sunday tunes (odd mix I know).
