MUG: Double-walled stainless steel French Press travel mug from Restoration Hardware.  

COFFEE: Coarse-ground Columbian Supremo from Barrett's, placed in zip-lock bags (12 grams).

NOTES: When on a trip, I carry a travel mug (and some ground coffee) with me to make a great cup of good coffee almost anywhere. While I usually use either the microwave or in-room coffee maker in hotel rooms, today's demonstration is about making coffee in a friend's house while staying with them and not wanting my 6 a.m. wake-up time to disturb their rest. Stealth coffee.

The fixin's. 

The boiling.

The pouring/stirring.

The timing (4 minutes).  Then you press the filter/plunger down.

The enjoying on the front porch in the cool of the morning before everyone else gets up.
