Kate picked up a glass tea strainer, which I immediantly latched upon for brewing coffee. On the bottom you can see cuts made in the glass with a very thin saw blade. Unfortunately it didn't work so well. The water outside the glass was not infused with the coffee, so it ended up a bit weak.
I've been experimenting with time, weight, and water volume in my french press. For instance, I just made some cowboy coffee using 1.5oz Papa New Guinea, 20 oz water, steeped for 8 minutes. This might be a little too long, but it's a very light coffee and I had made the coffee/water ratio very high. Medium acid. Roasted barley and malt flavors. Very delicate and light. Low fruit levels.
