I've been making the servicable sister of the tea cozy - the French press Warmer - from time to time over the past week or so. I felt a bit odd showing it off on the bar, but I guess that's appropriate for today of all days!
My mom called me this morning (9 am!) for the recipe for the famous Irish coffees we love to drink here in SFO. But the recipe is a no-brainer - it's the pre-heating of the glass, the dissolving of the sugar cube in the coffee, the shot of Irish whiskey and the slow pour of slightly whipped heavy cream over the back of a spoon that makes Irish coffee Irish coffee.
