In a recent interview with Businessweek, Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz admitted that “the best cup of coffee known to mankind” is made at home using a French press. He notes that the press does the best job of extracting the “oils, flavor, and essence of blends”.
Schultz also outlines his morning coffee routine and the procedure he uses to brew with the press. For coffee aficionados, there aren’t any surprises here—except for the fact that he instructs readers by saying “don’t buy pre-ground coffee”. Naturally, this is at odds with many of the products his company sells.
