Top 10 MUST HAVES if you are going to move to Haiti - #2

A good french press.

I love coffee. Haitian coffee is exceptional. I still miss Starbucks. (And I am praying daily that Pumpkin Spice Latte will still be seasonal when I visit the US in October/November-- sometimes they make an early switch over to the Christmas drinks... I hope this is not the case.)

A french press is the way to go. You don't know when you're not gonna have power and you don't know if you're going to be able to consistently find coffee filters, so a traditional coffee maker is not a good option.

I am SO thankful to Andrea who sent me my WONDERFUL french press... it's stainless steel and truly a thing of beauty. (And apparently a bit fingerprint-y right now.)

And yes, that is a bottle of rum reflecting off the french press... some days are harder than others. :) Just kidding, it was a gift to us from someone here... homemade kenep rum punch. Have had exactly one sip. It burned all the way down to my toes but it was yummy.

BTW-- Nahomie was making lunch when I went in to take a pic of the french press. She stopped what she was doing and just kind of shook her head as if I was crazy. I wonder what she says about us behind our backs? I am SURE I don't want to know...
