It really helps me during the week, because my wife doesn't drink coffee, or I should say doesn't routinely drink it. This is nice, since I can make a cup or two for myself, where my electric drip machine doesn't seem to do well with just a couple of cups of coffee.
Sounds like you're in the same situation I am. My wife doesn't drink coffee at all. My drip coffee maker makes pretty good coffee when I make a whole pot, but it's just not the same for a few cups, even with the special 1-4 cup setting. I've found that with the french press, I can make just enough to fill my travel mug and it's great.
