So my wife made a half pot of coffee this morning while I was still in bed. She only took about half the pot. I wanted to make some press coffee for myself since I have the week off from school and I have the time/motivation to use my press. Well rather than pouring the still hot coffee from the drip machine down the drain I used it in my press. I poured that in with the grounds and then added hotter than I normally use water. I tend to let my water temp drop to around 200F when I make press but this time I took it off when it was at a full rolling boil. Let it sit a few minutes and it has so much coffee flavor it's incredible. I'd do it to make coffee but it's such a waste of beans!
