    How do you make your coffee?

    My wife and I have bounced back and forth between a Keurig and a pot of coffee, depending on the day and how busy we are. It made me wonder, what is most common among the CFers out there? I know there are other methods, too, including French press, pour over, etc.

    So, how do you make your coffee?

    Keurig FTW. I rarely drink more than a cup at a time anyways.

    Keurig, my wife doesn't drink coffee and I usually just have a cup in the morning. In before coffee snobs (I assume that's a thing).

    Coffee snob alert!!!!!!

    I use a drip coffee maker with a gold plated filter and filtered water. I grind my own beans and only use beans that are locally roasted and I know how long ago they were roasted.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I can't decide if this is so ridiculous it has to be true or so ridiculous it can't be true.

    I like the convenience of the Kuerig, but I hate the taste of the coffee from it. I love Nespresso coffee though!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Keurig at work, drip at home and French press when we're camping.

    Re: How do you make your coffee?

    Pour over... Best of both worlds IMO. Gives me unlimited options on the beans I use (typically Half-Wit out of chicago or Grumpy out of Brooklyn), lets me tailor it specifically to my tastes (grind size/amount of coffee, amount of water, pouring time), makes a single cup at a time relatively quickly. Cheaper to get into than a keurig or coffee pot. (biggest expense is the kettle, but it isn't completely necessary, though it does make it easier). I also use a digital scale with a timer for consistent results.

    Lately I'm pulling two triple shots via my rancilio sylvia (paired with the rancilio rocky grinder, half-wit triforce espresso beans) and pouring over ice.

    Re: How do you make your coffee?

    Drip if I'm impatient and want it now.
    French press if I want more flavor and can wait a few minutes.
    Espresso if I'm at work.

    Switch to pour over... You'll be happier, trust me! If convenience is an issue get one of the electric pots and a hario v60 (plastic is cheap, and has less thermal impact than the ceramic).

    Sometimes french press and sometimes drip. Keurig's are gross.

    Re: How do you make your coffee?

    At home I just get those coffee bags (like a tea bag). Boil water and let it sit a few minutes. If I make coffee at home it is usually just one cup. I have a coffee pot but if I make a pot of coffee I'll probably drink the whole thing and I don't want to do that.

    I hate coffee. Hate the smell, hate the taste. Just thought I'd put that out there!
