    It was still a coffee bean beverage mixed with hot water in some proportion, but I believe the root of the misunderstanding is that when Americans say coffee, they're most commonly referring to drip, but some western europeans take coffee to mean what Americans call espresso.

    It was something along those lines, anyway.

    coffee discussions were never helped by the fact I didn't realise until about six months ago what a "french press" was.

    Once again. language differences within the same language are confusing, but also so much fun :P

    fuck the french. it's about steam and italy. Although I think the current machines are mostly based on a french prototype improving on the then-standard.

    I'd not realised this left French Girl utterly bewildered until one day she asked why we kept casually announcing "cheese".

    One of the few good things about all the terrestrial channels having four million digital channels each is ITV3 and it's repeats of classics drama and comedy.

    I really hate the term "French press". Coffee press is fine. But the former just seems lazy.

    The books are indeed far, far superior. But I will also use any excuse to watch Stephen Fry (I am very slightly obsessed).
