How to Make Hot Sensuous Coffee

Sweet Jen over at Pretty Modest bemoaned the fact that her two favorite coffee shops were now unavailable so she had gone back to Mr. Coffee as a last resort. I promised her I'd share my recipe with her here. So nobody else read this! This is only for Jen! (giggle)


  • Purified Water

  • French Press Coffeepot

  • Good Coffee Turkish Grind
    (I'm giving you lots of creative license here. My thought is if it comes whole bean in a bag, you're on the right track. Pick a flavor, pour it into the grinder at the grocery store and dial that baby all the way over to Turkish. It will look like powder when it's ground.)

  • Half n Half real dairy as in from a cow not that corn syrup solids business

  • Your favorite sweetening agent Splenda or sugar

  • A can of whipped cream

Steps to Coffee Bliss:

  1. Put a pot of purified water on the stove to boil.

  2. Put two tablespoons turkish ground coffee into the French press.

  3. When the water boils, pour it over the coffee into the French press.

  4. Wait 4 minutes. If I am in a hurry, I wait just 1.

  5. The coffee will be dark and opaque. This is good.

  6. Pour the coffee into a cup and saucer if you're going for a girly girl vibe or into a big mug if you're going for broke.

  7. Fill the cup 2/3 full.

  8. Add sugar or Splenda. Be generous.

  9. Stir until sugar dissolves.

  10. Add half-n-half. Be generous.

  11. Put a dollop of whipped cream on top.

  12. Sip the coffee with a happy slurpy sound and and grin cause you've got a cream moustache!

If you're already hot under the collar, then you can pour this over crushed ice. It's strong coffee, it will stand up to ice.

Hope you enjoy it, Jen! I'll post the chillin' blend-your-way-to-heaven coffee recipe next.

I'm a non-fat latte girl, but I really appreciated your extremely seductive recipe.......

then girl, just be generous with your warm skim milk!

Good water and good coffee is key. French press gives you so much bang for the buck compared to a drip coffee maker.

Jen said...

Ohhhh, thanks. I don't drink coffee often, so it needs to be yummy when I do. Will have to find a French press ASAP!

Sensuous Wife said...

You're welcome!

SW, I'd thank you for the coffee info/recipe but I did as you bid and didn't read it ;-) ;-) ;-).

Note to self: Go buy myself a French press. (Oh, I didn't say that ;-)

Jen, French presses can be found in many stores nowadays. If you live near a "World Market" or "Linens & Things" or "Bed, Bath & Beyond"... they all sell French presses.

Gemma, you're a hoot!
