I adore my French press. My French press has taken the place of my tea pot and my coffee maker, and allows me to make rather strange (and generally delicious) concoctions. Check out some recipes below!


  • 1.5 Tbsp loose leaf Mate
  • 1 Tbsp Unsulfured Black Strap Molasses
  • 1 tsp ginger powder -OR- 3 shreds fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup coconut milk

Add all to the French press and enough hot water to hit ‘fill to’ line, let steep at least 3 min.


  • 1Tbsp ground turmeric -OR- about 1 tsp fresh turmeric
  • 1Tbsp ground ginger -OR- about .5 tsp fresh ginger
  • .25tsp black pepper
  • 1-2Tbsp raw honey
  • 2Tbsp lemon or lime juice (or both, live your life!)

Add all to the French press, add hot water, allow to steep 5 minutes.


  • 2Tbsp coarse ground coffee
  • .5tsp cinnamon
  • .5tsp nutmeg
  • 1-2Tbsp pumpkin puree
  • vanilla extract or stevia to taste

Add above listed to French press, add hot water to steep for 3-5 min. Pour, serve with coconut milk.

Do you have any favorite recipes to add to the list? How do you take your mate?

  1. OMG on the coffee maker! Mine once backed up one night, I’m still not sure what happened, but grounds got into the water chamber. Well, I was drunk that night and forgot to ever take care of it. It was AWFUL when I found it.
