I ran out of coffee filters last week and had used my coffee press one morning — Alan liked it so much that I have been using my old coffee press which had been tucked away in one of the shelves of my pantry since then. It does have a different flavor. Forget that I’ve had to consciously grind my coffee beans to a grainier texture than the usual fine grind (which is good for the paper cone filters). It actually is a different experience. The coffee steeps and turns up creamier. The flavor is not as solid but more apparent. Now all I need is some pan de sal.
I signed in to write a blogpost hoping to write about my coffee press. But between the time I sat down to write this and got in here, I started thinking about pan de sal. Yummy old style Manila pan de sal. I am being specific because we have our own versions here on the East Coast. The last time I bought a bag, it was even whole wheat. None of the pesto flavored or the corned beef or tuna types, though. =( Only in Manila.
