Re: What Do You Have In Your Galley ?

G'day, mates. Can live without the cuppa's, pancakes and roasts on this boat. Recently cooked a 7.5 pound chicken in the 5 quart pressure cooker. P.S. The Force 10 is 14 years old and has served us well. Cheers.

Re: What Do You Have In Your Galley ?

I am interested in finding out about the French Coffee Press do you use that because of saving of electricity? I have never used one before and am sure he would not be able to maneuver one of these is it hard to retrain someone? I am laughing about this...sort of like can I teach an old dog new trick...what can I use for the motivation to get him to try. I think I might like to use this even in the kitchen and want to prepare for our smaller galley. Any tricks to this process? I am a bit intimidated about the grinds.

Re: What Do You Have In Your Galley ?

Welcome aboard, Waterlily!
We love our french press, which is the 48 oz. thermal insulated kind, because it makes excellent coffee and keeps it hot for hours. But there's one BIG caveat: People who cannot stand any sediment in coffee will not like the french press. Otherwise it's "good to the next to last drop."

Re: What Do You Have In Your Galley ?

I just got a French Press do not think it is insulated guess I should have thought about that, and I am not sure this makes enough coffee may have gotten one that is too small. I guess I will have to experiment. I tried it the coffee seems fine. I do not think the grounds got into it, maybe they are at the bottom. Thanks

I bought a small single French Press unit (I think at Starbucks). Works well just put some ground coffee beans in and fill it with hot water. Then put in the screen plunger/cover push it down slightly let it steep a few minutes before pushing down it all the way. I use a small fine nylon screen filter when pouring into the cup. BTW I occassionally have crew onboard who does not like strong coffee (more like colored water I say). But, I don't want no jittery crew on board either so I make another cup with the same grounds and he's pretty happy with that.

Yeah, I know but, I can't complain as it saves on me having to provision more coffee than needed. The crew is happy (and not jittery) and the Captain is happy and has less grounds to dispose of.

Been in the hardware business for a number of generations here. I can remember about forty-five years ago my mother was pitching a customer on Corelle dishes (they were recent inventions at the time). Her common ploy was to drop the dish on the floor - the customer was a bit surprised and this often sold the dishes. On the other hand, there was that one time she dropped a dish and it broke in two . . . quick recovery, "Well, they are almost unbreakable".

French pressed coffee doesn't contain sediment if you grind the coffee coarse enough. So a good burr grinder is important. Insulated Presses are best because it keeps the brewing temperature. A tea kettle heats the water to just under 200F, which is the optimal brewing temp. It's best to let it brew for about 3 minutes to extract all the flavor without letting it get bitter. So the temp drops fairly significantly in 3 minutes in a non-insulated press.

I love mine, it's a 20 ounce press, which gives me a perfect 16oz mug of coffee every morning. I'd like to have a bigger one for company, but it's not a big deal to wait 10 minutes for a second cup..
Manual grinder and a press, no electricity, perfect coffee. Whole beans stay fresh longer than pre-ground.. Lots of pluses

Search YouTube for how-to vids. But keep it simple.. Alot of people get out of control with measuring and timing everything perfectly. Just heat the water, grind the beans, fill the press, stir it around, put the lid on (to retain the heat), wait 2.5-3 minutes, press, and serve

but... collapsible??

And to get back on topic - I also find French coffee press very convenient. In warmer climates insulated or not does not seem to matter much..

Re: What Do You Have In Your Galley ?

Galley:



4 burner stove with grille - we do sometimes use all 4 burners- 2 sinks, hot and cold running water, plenty of storage, china plates and cups, we even have some crystal glasses, although use polycarbonate tumblers for everyday, soda stream, breadmaker, yoghurt maker... we eat at least as well aboard as we did on land. Better in fact - less fast food.
