Guy and I only knew each other for a short period of seven years. Every morning when visiting either our house or theirs, we always started the day with a great cup of coffee. While visiting with Guy’s sons we reminisced about the exact way he like to make his coffee.
The first few years, we both were making French roast coffee in the French press. Coffee or hot water could not touch plastic and after taking the beans out, we always vacuum sealed the beans to save the oils.
Around the same time but independently, we both switched to the pour-over method. Guy had this formula of 1/4 cup of Starbucks (French Roast) + 3 beans. I don’t know if he had weighted it or how exactly that amount was reached.
