I really haven't touched my machine many times since I received it for my birthday a few years back. I was pretty scared of it to be honest!
I made coffee in my press yesterday and HATE how fast it becomes ice cold since the carafe is glass and not very thermal. I had seen some coffee-press-cozies on some other blogs and figured that it looked pretty easy.
I used some nice olive green fabric knit fabric and some ivory grosgrain ribbon. It was really just a rectangle with places for two bows. Then you simply tie the cozy around the press and it works like a sweater for my coffee! I think it works pretty well.
Maybe I could start a successful coffee-press-cozy business! Who needs a job!?!
