My husband and I are true coffee lovers. When we have friends over for a party, they expect a great cup of coffee. We love to provide a wonderful brew and sit around talking with our cup filled over and over. There’s nothing better than catching up with good friends over delicious coffee.
In the past, we’ve used most every type of coffee maker. The drip machine is our most often used, but we’ve also used a percolator. The first time we’ve tried a French Press Coffee maker was when we went to a trendy restaurant with some friends. The waitress brought us a glass French Press, so it was fun to use and we enjoyed the coffee a lot. But, we didn’t buy one for our home.
Then, I was thrilled to be offered a review opportunity from El Gato Malo! They sent me their beautiful, shiny stainless steel French Press Coffee maker to try. I was so excited and my husband was, too. This heavy and great quality item had the look of a kitchen appliance that would last forever!
How about a coffee maker with no plug-in? Isn’t that a great thing? I know I loved it. Reading the directions, I found it to be very simple to use. We made our first pot and it was truly delicious. The coffee tasted more rich than the drip coffee. We were very eager to try it out on our guests for a little Christmas get-together that we had planned. The Christmas holidays are a perfect time to get together with friends and loved ones.
I prepared a few Christmas goodies to share. The Old-Time Sugar Cookies are a Christmas favorite for young and old. This buttery cookie is made from scratch. I love making these labor-intensive cookies with old-fashioned ingredients and rolling them out. It’s fun to cut them out into Christmas trees or angels and baking them. The delicious icing and sprinkles gives such a festive presentation to our holiday party. Now, if I can just keep the family from eating them before the guests arrive, we’ll be set.
I also made a drop cookie that everyone loves with chocolate, peanut-butter and oatmeal. This is my guys favorite treat, so I made a huge batch! They’re easy to make, and never any left on the plate. We also have nuts and mints. So, plenty of treats are available for snacking. But, the hit of the party was most definitely the coffee from our El Gato Malo Coffee Press!
We loved every drop and made two pots with our new El Gato Coffee Press. The guests asked about the beautiful press, because they had never seen a stainless steel coffee press before. We talked about the advantages of stainless steel over glass. It is so much better than glass, because glass ones can easily break. El Gato’s is made for the dishwasher, and that’s including all the parts!
You’re going to want an El Gato Coffee Press for your home, too. And, because it’s Stainless Steel, you can easily pack it in your suitcase and take it with you when you travel. There are no worries about it breaking in your suitcase.
I hope you enjoyed this review and will try out the El Gato Coffee Press for yourself. I know you’ll love it! We certainly love it here at our home.
