Then found this howto a month after getting the French Press.
Tried it for myself and it is as easy as it looks! Except mine just needed a few extra vigorous pumps.
The results were spectacular. Also because this was brewed from a French Press, it’s almost as good (or even better) than an espresso-based drink. That froth is really thick and creamy.
What you need:
- French press
- coarsely ground coffee beans
- condensed milk
- follow standard French Press brewing procedures, except make it concentrated (use 1/4 of water you’d use on your usual serve)
- follow video from above for milk
- add a dash of cinnamon and vanilla, to taste. use condensed milk as sweetener, also to taste. (optional)
- pour milk on mug
