How do you make your coffee

Hopefully a thread like this doesn't exist already.

I just bought a Chemex coffee maker. I was using a Keurig machine before this. So far, it's night and day. When you get fresh beans and filtered water, it's night and day.

I'm a weirdo, though. I'm on a kick lately to make the perfect cup of coffee without having to spend $2.50/day to get it.

    I'm more of a coffee ice cream guy
    Don't really like coffee and when I do drink it, it fucks me up more than booze ever could.

    Espresso made from a dark roast, usually French or Italian. This has some good ones: http://www.sanfranciscobaycoffee.com/


    Will probably try the french press I was given soon.

    I have both a Chemex for home use and I have a french press at work.

    I use Gimme! Coffee and Cafe Bustelo with both.


    ...and baileys on weekends.

    I buy Costco-brand beans which are really good. Grind them every morning and drink it black. Sometimes I add some Splenda.

    I also love Nespresso. Such a great little machine.

    Keurig is disgusting.

    Re: How do you make your coffee

    Is a French Press the same thing as a percolator? I have a percolator and it's a billion percent better than a normal drip coffee maker.

    Usually do a little sugar and some French Vanilla creamer.

    Re: How do you make your coffee

    No, a french press is different. French Press you put the grounds in, boil hot water, pour in water and stir, let sit, then 'press' the grounds down to the bottom. French press is the way. It tastes amazing.

    Unfortunately my grinder broke and I haven't got a new one so I've been left to use my automatic drip.

    Re: How do you make your coffee

    I have a Melitta coffee maker with a thermal carafe. I use Costco beans, but the kind that are roasted by Starbucks and rebranded by Costco...bit of cream and splenda. I also have a Bodum french press that I use once in a while.

    I love my Keurig and it makes my mornings very easy. I specifically get the strongest coffee available in k-cups though because the weaker stuff can taste pretty watered down.

    If I have more time, I usually make myself lattes and espresso using my Bialetti stove top brewer. Delicious.

    I grind beans from a local roaster about once a week. During the week I use the grounds in the reusable Keurig coffee filter. French press on the weekend.
