I recently treated myself to a gold-plated french coffee press because I was feeling snazzy and nothing tastes quite as sumptuous as a cup of freshly pressed coffee. I'm all about injecting simple luxury into my life whenever possible. You too?

Also, this short video and the accompanying post provide a beautiful articulation of how satisfying a perfectly brewed cup of coffee can be. Enjoy.
