After starting to live in with the boyfriend about 3 years ago, he introduced me to the French Press. I was used to putting lots of sugar in my coffee to offset the bitterness, but then he taught me to just add more milk.
Now I've learned that if I just fill my cup halfway with milk, then pour the coffee, I have the perfect blend of caffeine and sweetness. I'm proud to say that I have stopped using sugar in my coffee.
But it's always nice to come home, boil some water, grind our dark roast coffee beans, and make our own coffee our own way.
