Mentioned before on these pages is the ease of which I can and you could also make delicious homemade tortillas. If you are very dexterous or a middle aged Mexican women, you could simply hand form them. If you're at all like me, you'd want a tool for the job. My beloved press deserves its own post so here it is:
I can't say enough good things about this press. It's a couple(?) decades old at least. My mother gave it to me after years of neglect in a cupboard. My aunt owns the exact same press, likely bought at the same time as this one.
Mind the coffee maker. Really, it's only as valuable as it is useful. To make tortillas you need masa, and that it one thing I'm not making from scratch. Making hominy, drying it, and then grinding it is out of the question. Luckily, in just about grocery store in the state of California you can buy a large bag for a few bucks, meaning you have fresh tortillas for next to nothing. A press can be ordered online or found in the local tiendas. What are you waiting for? A word of caution: much like roasting your own coffee, growing your own tomatoes, or cooking your own methamphetamines, once you get a taste, there is no going back.
