Review: Starbucks Hot Cocoa Salted Caramel

I’m a hot cocoa drinker, yes I am! However, I wouldn’t say I like every hot cocoa flavors out there. I tried different flavors, some are okay, and some I don’t like. Well, a week ago, Sean bought me this Starbucks Hot Cocoa Salted Caramel at Wal-Mart. At first, I was like, “Okay, let me try this and see if I’ll like it.” Guess what?; this is what I was exactly looking for a hot cocoa taste. The taste of this one makes me feel so close to home (Philippines). I can taste the cocoa in it. That little bitter taste in it makes it tastes excellent. I don’t add any milk to it. I like the flavor more without adding milk in it. So thankful to Sean for this ♥.

Drinking my hot cocoa and partnered it with Filipino Puto (steamed muffin). YUM!!

[ Review ] FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER

So, I’ve been hearing a lot about this French Press coffee maker for months and the reviews are overwhelmingly great! Even with those reviews, I was still a little skeptical about it. Lately, I broke my coffee maker and so I needed a new one. While I was shopping for a new coffee maker I happened to see this French Press coffee maker. I was debating for probably over thirty minutes whether I should get this or get the same coffee maker that I had. Apparently, the debate on my head ended and the French Press won and I checked out.

When I got back home, I couldn’t wait, I was too eager to give it a try and so I did. You know what, the first thing I said to myself was ” girl, you should have tried this the first time you heard about it”. I continued talking to myself saying “dang, this is good!”. Anyone else can relate? Do you talk to yourself sometimes? Anyway, I’m so glad I got the French Press.

SO WHY FRENCH PRESS COFFEE MAKER?

For me, my coffee using this French Press coffee maker tastes much better compared to my old coffee maker. Paper filters in drip machines absorb much of the oil in your coffee grounds. French Press doesn’t soak up the flavor and adds tiny bits of coffee grounds in the coffee that percolates flavor and that’s why the taste is even better.

HOW LONG SHOULD FRENCH PRESS BREW?

The brewing takes only four ( 4 ) minutes. First thing, I boiled water. While the water is boiling I put coffee grounds on my French Press. Then, I slowly poured the hot water over my coffee ground inside the French Press filling to the desired level. Cover it and let it brew for four ( 4 ) minutes.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE FRENCH PRESS?

French press retains more of the natural oils from the coffee grounds.  It allows the oil based flavors in the coffee to remain. I’m telling you now, I’m obsessed with it. This is a must have coffee maker.
