Giveaway: Le Creuset Cafe Collection in Truffle

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Rebecca G.! I hope you love this Cafe Collection as much as I do!

Even if you’ve only read a post or two here on Bluebonnets & Brownies, I’m pretty sure it’s come across clearly that I am a coffee addict. But let me clarify: I am great coffee addict.

If presented with the option of bad coffee or no coffee, I will choose no coffee. I’m sure The Brit wishes differently, because a caffeine-denied Amber does not a fun day make. But when it comes to coffee, I am an out and out snob, and proud of it.

Because of my crazy obsession, the chance to review Le Creuset’s new Cafe Collection was kind of a no-brainer. I’ll jump at the chance to feed my coffee addiction for any reason. That it involved my favorite French stoneware just happened to be the icing on the proverbial cake.

One thing that is apparent to me with each piece of Le Creuset stone and cast iron-ware I hold in my hands is the pure attention to detail. Each cup, the cream jug, and the French Press of the Cafe Collection, they sit in your hand perfectly.

I was worried the French Press might be too heavy – a lifetime of typing has left me with less than optimal hand strength. I’m happy to say that the French Press, even when full of delicious coffee, is easy to hold and pour.

If you’ve never had coffee made with a French Press, let me enlighten you: start with course ground beans. Add boiling water (for that, you might want an electric kettle) and allow to brew. When you’re ready to indulge, you use the press to push the grounds down to the bottom of the jug.

Direct contact between the ground beans and water means a stronger, more pure cup of coffee. Perfection on a Sunday morning.

The matching cups, saucers, sugar and creamer, and even coffee storage jar and teaspoons, are gorgeous. Each is made of the quality stoneware you come to expect from Le Creuset. I reviewed the set in Truffle, and I must tell you, I am in love with this color.

Whether they named it for the mushroom or the chocolate, I don’t really care. It is flat out stunning, whatever the inspiration.

Would you like to experience the Cafe Collection for yourself?

I want the 16 qt stock pot in fennel. I love to make large batches of soups and store them in the freezer during the winter time for quick and easy meals later on.

I have also followed and twitted/tweeted for the extra chances to win! Here's keeping my fingers crossed... X
